Support our work
Together we can make a bigger difference
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.
As we move from one crisis to another, we can’t predict the future or what challenges will come next, but we can continue working to develop, test and share evidence-driven tools for all. Impact matters, and it matters most of all to the people charities serve.
By investing in NPC, you have the opportunity to maximise your impact, helping even more people and communities. Together we can help reduce poverty, face the challenges of climate change and create a more equitable world.
Our supporters are invited to exclusive NPC events and networking opportunities, where you can build connections with other funders and philanthropists and be the first to hear about our latest research and policy recommendations for the sector. This offers the opportunity to share your experiences and insights to help add value to what we do. We can also provide bespoke recognition of your contribution to our work depending on your preferences.

I helped set up NPC because I knew there were other donors passionate about generating a social return with their donations.

Open Philanthropy is transitioning from its first pilot stage to scale, where we build on what the brilliant insights we’ve gained so far in this innovative programme and help move these findings towards real impact. We are seeking funding partners who want to be part of this ambitious experiment in opening up philanthropy. Their investment will be distributed as part of the grant-making aspect of the programme, as well as support the innovation and learning of the programme itself. Find out more about our Open Philanthropy Programme.
Everyone’s Environment empowers people from the UK’s diverse social groups to have a say in how we confront the climate and nature crises. We are one of the few organisations raising awareness of the intersection of social and environmental issues – there is a lot of work to do in this space and we’re excited to lead the way. Join us! Find our more about Everyone’s Environment.
Data and digital infrastructure. We aim to reduce administrative burdens to free up people’s capacity for more important work. We are developing digital products and harnessing the potential of open data with funders, philanthropists and frontline charities as end users, to help achieve this aim. Find out more about our work in this area.
Influencing the political environment for charities to succeed is our bread and butter as a think tank. We work hard behind the scenes (and sometimes in front of the curtain) to advocate for the role of philanthropy and social organisations in government policy development. Find out more about our influencing work.
I don't think there's anyone quite like NPC. It plays across a number of different markets, which can be a great strength.

We have some amazing supporters, many of whom fund our work on an unrestricted basis, which allows us to focus our efforts where it will have most impact.
