Charities with an International Focus – Yes We’ve Got Those!

It is true that we only evaluate charities based in the United States, registered with the IRS and that have 501 c (3) public charity status. 

However, just because a charity is registered in the US doesn't mean that it can’t work overseas. In fact, we have a whole category of international charities. It contains more than 550 charities that work throughout the world to defend human rights, to promote peace and understanding among all nations, and to provide relief and development services

And we have nearly 1,000 charities on our site whose scope of work is international. Those charities cut across all of our 9 categories of charities – from Animals to Religion

If you can't find an international charity that matches your philanthropic interests via one of those lists, then check out our interactive world map. It will help you to identify which 4-star charities are working in specific countries around the world.

As a 501 (c) (3) organization itself, Charity Navigator depends on public support to help donors make informed choices. Please consider investing in the future of Charity Navigator by making a donation today.  Donate now >>
