NGO stands for non-governmental organizations. Some popular NGOs include the Idea Center and the Association of University Centers on Disabilities. These organizations work separately from the government. Most of the NGOs are on a broader scale, and they are recognized all over the world. Non-profits work for specific purposes related to the organization's religious, educational, or scientific goals. Some examples of non-profit organizations include the American Red Cross, American Heart Association, and the Girl Scouts. Any profit they do come across is put back into fulfilling their purpose, whether it be through trade unions, performing charitable acts, or giving the public a pathway to more arts.
