A message from NPC’s CEO, Dan Corry
There has never been a time when NPC was more needed. We, like so many across the sector, are affected by the Covid-19 crisis, meeting greater demand with fewer resources coming in.
While frontline charities are responding on the ground to the challenges Covid-19 has raised, NPC is working behind the scenes to support funders to give where it will have most impact and to help the sector adapt and survive for the future. We are producing analysis and gathering data now that will inform our understanding of this crisis: in the short, long and medium term.
As with many other charities NPC has had to take the difficult decision to furlough a number of staff so you may find the person you are used to working with is not currently available. We are doing this in a way that will enable us to support philanthropists and charities to navigate the current environment whilst also helping to ensure the financial stability of NPC.
We will continue to champion the sector and those people it supports throughout this time.

The hard reality of system interdependence is being brought directly into our homes and news feeds. What lessons will we learn? What changes will it bring? Now is the time to bring systems change out of the clouds and into the mainstream.
The country is in a very deep crisis. At NPC we are working with philanthropists and partners on how they can more effectively fund charities now, and we want to hear your ideas about what more can be done.
"From where I sit the philanthropic response has been positive so far, but this is a stoppage like no other." NPC's man in the U.S. comments on the situation there.
A collaborative effort to help philanthropists keep charities serving throughout the coronavirus crisis, and prepare for whatever challenges the post-covid world will hold.
If the unofficial motto of the charity sector is ‘we do what needs to be done’—then right now with coronavirus we face an unprecedented challenge of working out what does need to be done. We need to adapt and ask how those who support us can also help
