1: Create a name and logo for the NGO. One option is to use the existing name and logo for your organization or company in your application, especially if you think it is a good fit. Often, a shorter name that sums up the mission of your organization and a bright, simple logo are effective options.
It may be a good idea to provide 2-3 back up names and logos in the event your first choice is already taken. You cannot have the name and logo of an NGO that has already been registered.
2: Determine what type of NGO your organization will be. There are several different types of non-profit organizations that are recognized by law in major countries: charitable or religious organizations, social welfare organizations, labor and agricultural organizations, business leagues, and veterans organizations. Identify which type your organization falls under so you can specify this in your application.
3: Write down the organization’s mission statement, programs, and projects. As part of your application for NGO status, you will need to provide details about the purpose and goals of your organization or group. Your mission statement should note how you plan to support individuals or a cause through actions, training, and non-profit investment. You should also detail the different types of programs and projects currently being done by your organization as well as future programs or projects you hope to implement.
You also need to provide information on your staff members and their qualifications, especially if you have a small team.
4: Get 2-3 written letters of recommendation from local leaders. As part of your application, you will need to provide letters of recommendation that speak to the integrity and positive impact of your organization. Try to get 1 letter from a local government member, such as a city councilperson, and 1-2 other letters from other local government members or community members who can speak to your organization’s work.
Make sure the letters are typed, easy to read, and signed by the recommender. Provide the original copies of the letters in your application.
5: Prepare a report of the organization’s finances and funding. You will need to show the government that your organization adheres to the funding requirements for non-profit status, as the organization cannot turn a profit or collect earnings that do not go back into the organization.
