As a registered charity, NPC relies on the generosity of our supporters to continue our work to transform the charity sector. There are several ways to support us.
We draw on all kinds of knowledge and skills in our work, and are always eager to meet people interested in giving their time to help us further our mission. If you would like to volunteer at NPC, please email Samantha Simpson, telling us a bit about yourself and what skills you bring with you. If you’re interested in working with NPC as an intern, please check our current opportunities.
Join our Supporters’ Circle
NPC’s has a group of committed supporters, dedicated to helping make the charity sector more effective, who enable us to carry out our work. If you are interested in joining, please contact our Director of Development Tris Lumley for more information.
NPC generates income through its consultancy services but, like other charities, we also need unrestricted funding. This enables us to provide the new thinking the charity sector needs to bring about change, and supports the day-to-day life of the organisation. You can donate directly to NPC using the button below.
Fund our research
We rely on grants from trusts and foundations and corporate funders to enable us to carry out our research. This works in various ways—for example a foundation may give us a sum to fund research into a particular issue which relates to their focus, or a company may sponsor us to carry out research into a strategic issue affecting their clients. Please get in touch with Patrick Murray to discuss this further.
We also carry out more defined pieces of bespoke research as part of our consulting services.
Become an NPC client
NPC is a registered charity and is not for profit. We charge for our consulting services on a project–by-project basis, working with each client to agree on a service that fits their budget and strategic needs. In everything we do, we strive to deliver value for money and to help our clients to increase and prove their impact.
Sponsor or host an event
Alongside our flagship annual conference, NPC Ignites, we run an extensive events programme, from training in theory of change, to seminars on impact measurement, to discussions of the hot topics of the day. NPC’s position at the nexus between charities and funders means we can draw delegates from across the sector to these events. By sponsoring or hosting a NPC event you’ll be building your profile with our community of charities, social enterprises and funders. You’ll reach our 12,000 monthly unique web visitors, 15,000 active Twitter followers and our email database of ~30,000 contacts. Please get in touch with Rebecca Goodbourn to discuss further event opportunities.
