I´m looking for good examples of websites for government, NGO´s and such that have clear and specific functions in their UI´s that make it easy to get involved and that drive engagement.

Example: Swedish Red Cross

Another wonderful example is the Donors Choose site.

1) Clear call-to-action button for donors. 2) Seperate, prominent call-to-action for teachers. 3) Recent testimonials from other donors as encouragement. 4) Photos of the actual kids benefiting from various projects on the homepage.

Hope this helps. I annotated a screenshot, but too new to Stack Exchange to add it here.

Here is another example pretty close to the others. (Donations and fundraising for nonprofits and charities online)
