I need a word to define a set which includes companies, NGOs and faculties that sounds equally distant to those 3.
I am not a native English speaker so I might be wrong but "Corporation" sounds like it is favoring "companies" more, and "institution" evokes "faculties".
Is there a more natural generic term for those? What would you think about "foundation" or "establishment"?
edit: I was thinking what is common to those 3. They are all bodies with members. So how about calling them bodies? A bit too general, though. What about associations?
