NPT UK and NPT Transatlantic: A Philanthropic Mission That Spans the Globe

Author John Canady, Chief Executive Officer, NPT UK

Philanthropy has long been engrained in the history of the UK, and that spirit lives on in today’s donors. Global giving in 2020 was estimated to be £182 billion, with £11.2bn of philanthropic donations coming from UK donors.

Both NPT UK and NPT Transatlantic have played pivotal roles in facilitating the philanthropic efforts of donors in the UK and around the world. From addressing the COVID-19 pandemic crisis to supporting animal welfare causes, UK and global donors have continued to make their mark. In fact, in 2022, NPT UK granted £12.2 million—almost three times the value of charitable grants in 2020 alone.

Since launching as National Philanthropic Trust’s first global affiliate in 2013, NPT UK has become one of the leading providers of donor-advised funds (DAFs) to donors in the UK and those who wish to base their philanthropic efforts from the UK. NPT Transatlantic is a dual-qualified US/UK charity providing DAFs that enable dual taxpayers to receive tax benefits in both the US and the UK.

Comprised of a trusted and renowned team, NPT UK is led by donor-advised fund experts coming from backgrounds in finance, impact investing, and global philanthropy.

The NPT UK team works directly with individual donors, advisors, and private banks and wealth managers to provide their philanthropic expertise guidance throughout every step of the giving process.

In the UK, DAFs are the increasingly popular alternative to setting up a charitable trust. Globally, many philanthropic families prefer to manage part of their global philanthropy from the UK—and donor-advised funds are a flexible, easy vehicle for them.

For our many donors in the UK and across the globe, the uniquely flexible DAF has been pivotal in carrying out their philanthropic visions, and NPT UK and NPT Transatlantic are proud to be part of that.
