Licensed and Related Organizations

One of the purposes of the commission is to both encourage title and trademark users to properly label their organizations and name; failure to clearly disambiguate a goodwill ambassador or a company resulting in confusion is actionable and adequate cause to take the necessary steps to independently identify the entity.

Organizations that use the Goodwill Ambassadors Mark

This page lists organizations that correctly, legally and officially use the Goodwill Ambassadors Mark or the Goodwill Ambassador Title to promote their activities and/or operate their programs.

The page is divided into several sections.

Recognized International Titles
