- About Us
National Philanthropic Trust (NPT) is a public charity founded in 1996. Since that time we have made more than 273,000 grants totaling $6.8 billion to charities all over the world. We have raised $13.5 billion in charitable contributions and currently manage $8.1 billion in charitable assets. NPT ranks among the largest grantmaking institutions in the United States.
Our mission is to increase philanthropy in society. We do so by working with thousands of the world’s most generous and inspired philanthropists, who use our donor-advised funds to support the causes that are most important to them.
Donor-advised funds are philanthropy’s most popular giving vehicle and ours are uniquely flexible. With $25,000 or more, an individual, family, trust, corporation, or nonprofit organization can open a donor-advised fund account with NPT.
National Philanthropic Trust is proud to work together with our donors to tackle overwhelmingly large problems like poverty on an international scale while also supporting small charities that serve hyperlocal communities. Whatever a donor’s charitable goals, NPT’s response is the same: Your vision is our purpose.
