I need to give a title for the list which contains companies and organizations.

I have heard Organisation ( Mostly non-profit) and Companies (Profit based) . Our list contains both types of entities. So I am looking for a common name to users understand easily.

  • What's the difference? Aren't companies also organisations of sorts? I would suggest a better name for whatever you are calling "organisations". But for your list title you could use "Entities", "Clients", "Things to avoid", "Future prospects to contact" -- we don't know enough about the situation to suggest anything uniquely suitable. – Andrew Leach Nov 14 '16 at 10:39

  • Organization is fine. Under it, you can have for profit and not for profit. You could also have governmental. The former two are private sector, the latter public sector. – Richard Kayser Nov 15 '16 at 4:21

Organisation is the common word. A company is a type of organisation. An organisation could be for profit or not.

If these organizations and companies fall under a single umbrella ownership-wise you could use:

Conglomerate: adj./noun "Consisting of heterogeneous parts or elements."

  • Downvote because?? I'm fine with someone not liking my answer but at least say why. I'd rather someone dissuade the OP for a particular reason as opposed to there just being a downvote with no context. – Mastergeek Nov 15 '16 at 23:16
  • I didn't downvote you, but I suspect the one who did thought that "conglomerate" applies usually to very large companies, and hardly ever to charities or "non-profits" – Robbie Goodwin Nov 27 '16 at 22:45
