Why NGO?

Why do you want to create a new NGO? What are your objectives? What does it mean for you? Why is it important? If you are in the business of creating new organizations, then you should understand what this venture will mean to you, as well as others.

1. Your name will be the first thing that your donors and supporters see, and the first impression they get.

2. Your name will tell them what you stand for, and how they can help you achieve your mission.

3. A good name will make people want to work with you.

4. A good name will show off your logo and brand identity. 

5. A good name can give you funding, so long as it is genuine and helps your cause, not just one that could use a helping hand to make the world a better place for all of us!

6. A good name can help you make more friends, so that you can have more people that believe in and support you.

7. A good name will give you a better chance to carry out your mission and vision.


Don’t wait till your name is perfect before launching your NGO! Do not put all of your eggs in one basket! Apply for grants and search for ways to get the funding needed for the start-up costs, such as permits and legal fees. Once the start-up costs are covered, then think about how much it will cost per month to run this new nonprofit organization’s daily operations.



With all of this in mind, let’s take a look at how you can name your NGO. Which name would you prefer, and why? What helps make it more appealing to your donors, volunteers and supporters? It is important that NGOs are named based on what their mission statement is , as well as on what their intended purpose is.
