Why do the NGO's governing documents need to be in English? Can NGOsource do the translation?

U.S. law requires that the NGO's governing documents be in English. We do not provide translation services. NGOsource members and their intended grantees may choose any translation service or method and must cover the costs of the translation themselves.

As is required by the IRS, NGOsource will conduct its ED review based solely on the translated governing documents provided by the NGO and will not be responsible for verifying the accuracy of the translation.  NGOs may contact us if they need assistance in obtaining a translation. If needed, NGOsource can introduce NGOs to a translation service.
