Become a Member

If you are a non-governmental organization implementing projects or programs in the fields of global development or humanitarian aid, you may be eligible for InsideNGO membership under one of two membership categories: general NGO membership and local national NGO membership. Local national NGO membership is available if your organization is an autonomous, locally organized, and governed NGO registered in your developing country of origin. General membership applies to all other NGOs. Please contact us to initiate a conversation on your interest in membership, and someone from our membership team will be in touch. A membership application form will be sent to prospective members.


Become a Sustaining Member

If you join InsideNGO or are already a member organization, consider becoming an InsideNGO Sustaining Member, a membership category that offers your NGO an opportunity to support InsideNGO with a special, annual contribution in addition to your regular dues. Sustaining Member support increases InsideNGO’s ability to offer beneficial services to support evolving needs and concerns across the membership and is a way to demonstrate your organization’s leadership in the international development community.

If you are a company providing a service or product (e.g., accounting, software, insurance) to the NGO community you do not qualify for InsideNGO membership but may be eligible for affiliation under InsideNGO’s Industry Partner Program.
