The 2023 new World 200 SGO list by thedotgood captures the leading social good organizations (SGOs) operating from every corner of the planet.
thedotgood’s Top 200 world listing presents the ‘Ivy League’ of the Social Good Sphere in terms of their people-centered governance and holistic innovation and impact. These 200 SGOs embody and carry out the very enriching and diverse criteria for what results in ‘social profit’.
The social good sector has evolved immensely over the last two decades. The charity-focused model/approach was soon to shift beyond faith-based organizations.
