How we are funded

NPC is the think tank and consultancy for the social sector. We help charities, foundations, philanthropists, impact investors, social enterprises, businesses, and the public sector to maximise social impact in the lives of the people they serve.

As a registered charity and think tank, NPC relies on the generous support of funders and philanthropists, partners and the public to build a strong, effective and impactful charity sector.

NPC builds that strength, encourages better practice and imagines new approaches for the sector to take.​ We improve, influence, and innovate for a stronger, more resilient and progressive charity sector.
