I would strongly recommend the book called: "The Revolution Will Not Be Funded: Beyond The Non-Profit Industrial Complex" It is a collection of essays about the history and function of non-profits in America. If you do read it, feel free to skip the first essay in the book. It is very difficult to read. That other essays are all much better and you will definitely learn a lot about how the wealthy have used non-profits to prevent meaningful social and economic change.
These UN councils and commissions are usually a forum for states to interact with various nonprofits and NGOs. These organizations purport to be philanthropic, but their true material function is to serve as liaisons between government control and private sector wealth. They funnel public money into private hands, and they also redirect the energies of threatening social-justice movements from below into activities and agendas that increase state (and capitalist) power, like for example using womens' liberation to justify imperialism, or using "anti-harrassment" to justify censorship and beef up the surveillance and police state.
