Other Giving Vehicles

In addition to offering donor-advised funds and supporting organizations, we provide other ways to give and further our mission of increasing philanthropy in society.

NPT Transatlantic

NPT Transatlantic is NPT’s international affiliate. It was founded in 2013 in London and shares the mission of providing philanthropic expertise to donors, financial institutions, foundations and charities, enabling them to realize their philanthropic aspirations. NPT Transatlantic is an independent UK registered charity and is a UK/US dual qualified charity. As a dual qualified charity, NPT Transatlantic offers donors who pay taxes in both countries the ability to claim UK tax relief and receive a tax deduction in the US.

Designated Funds

NPT offers designated funds for individual, corporate or foundation donors who wish to make a single charitable gift or recurring gifts to one specific charity. Nonprofit organizations can also establish designated funds at NPT. NPT can accept charitable donations on their behalf, including illiquid gifts. Designated funds are similar to donor-advised funds (DAFs), except designated funds are established to support specific charities. In addition, eligible individuals can make a charitable IRA rollover contribution into a designated fund, which is not permissible into a DAF.


Field of Interest Funds

These giving vehicles allow like-minded individuals, families, foundations or businesses to pool their charitable resources and recommend grants towards a single issue area or a mutually agreed-upon portfolio of grantee organizations. We have managed funds dedicated to supporting breast cancer research, September 11th victims and their families, education initiatives and other charitable causes.


NPT Charitable Asset Trust

For donors who wish to contribute shares of S-corporations, limited liability companies or other entities that generate unrelated business taxable income (UBTI), NPT offers an affiliate: NPT Charitable Asset Trust (NPT CAT). As a public charity in the trust form, NPT CAT is generally taxed at a lower rate on UBTI than NPT, which is a nonprofit corporation. Before accepting a contribution, NPT evaluates which entity would be most tax-efficient for the gift. Once an asset is liquidated by NPT CAT, proceeds are transferred to an NPT donor-advised fund, which allows donors to recommend investments and grants to their favorite charities over time.
