Join our Supporters’ Circle

NPC’s Supporters’ Circle is a network of committed philanthropists who have come together to support our work to transform the charity sector.

As a member of the Supporters’ Circle you’ll be invited to bespoke NPC events and networking opportunities, where you can build connections with other funders, share experiences, and discuss issues of the day—from the impact of coronavirus on civil society to new innovations in philanthropy and charitable giving. For the past 20 years, NPC has been making waves and moving the dial as the thinktank of the social sector. As the journey continues, we invite you to be part of the next decade of sector-wide innovation, influence and improvement.

You will be invited to share your insights to help add value to what we do and recognise your contribution to our work. Reflecting the monumental amount of work to be done in the sector, Supporters’ Circle members typically donate a minimum of £10,000 per annum, but we welcome all support.

If you are interested in joining the Supporters’ Circle, please contact Elise Karam, our Head of Philanthropy, for more information.

We work closely with our funders to identify issues that prevent charities from achieving their greatest impact. We explore ways to overcome challenges and collaborate with partners to bring about change, reporting on our findings and making recommendations for the future.

If you would like to support a specific project, we would love to hear from you.
