NPT can facilitate a Type 1 Supporting Organization, which offers the same tax advantage as a donor-advised fund. Supporting Organizations are a popular choice for philanthropists who desire more control over grantmaking and investments than a donor-advised fund, but less expense and administrative burden than a private foundation.
Many supporting organizations are created with a specific issue-area in mind. To support those goals, NPT's expert staff can execute specialized grants, including research grants with benchmarks for funding, endowed chairs at universities and other institutions, or naming rights to a building.
For a look at what NPT can help donors achieve, you can visit two of the Supporting Organizations that we administer:
