NEW PHILANTHROPY CAPITAL 

NPC provides independent research and advice for charities and funders, to help them achieve greater impact. We offer this advice based on in-depth research of social issues and on our unique method of analysing charities. We encourage debate about what makes a charity effective, and build knowledge and tools to support charities and funders in their efforts to increase their own effectiveness.
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • The charity has received backing from multiple prominent grant makers recently
  • Fundraising costs are low relative to funds raised
  • The Board appears to be well diversified in terms of age and gender and dynamic in terms of composition

Financial issues to consider:

  • Liquidity appears to have been slender at the latest year end
  • On several occasions in recent years income has been less than spending
