InterAction is the largest alliance of U.S.-based international nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), with more than 190 members working in virtually every developing country. Members are faith-based and secular, large and small, with a focus on the world's most poor and vulnerable populations. The U.S. public, foundations and others support the efforts of our membership via funding totaling more than $13 billion a year, according to 2009 estimates. InterAction's funds come from dues and grants from private foundations, corporations, and the U.S. government.
Using its collective voice, InterAction seeks to shape important policy decisions on relief and long term development issues, including foreign assistance, humanitarian reform, the environment, women, health, education and agriculture. Members are at the forefront in responding to humanitarian crises and disasters worldwide and InterAction acts as a hub in these efforts.
Alliance members adhere to standards drawn up by InterAction, which aim to ensure accountability and transparency in financial management, fundraising, governance and program performance.
