Stewarding DAF Donors’ Generosity: NPT UK DAF Grant Highlights

Author Natalie Pinon, Director of Development

NPT UK is driven by our mission to make philanthropy more convenient and efficient for donors, exemplified by our donors’ continued support to a wide range of charitable causes globally. Here are three examples of how grants from DAF donors are making a difference:


Supporting Culture and the Arts out of the Global Pandemic

Theatres throughout the UK had to shut their doors during much of the last year. As we emerge from COVID-19 restrictions, many donors are helping to breathe life back into arts and culture organisations. A £110,000 grant was made to a theatre company serving young audiences to help convert a non-theatre building to green energy systems and add insulation. The theatre will open in July with its first socially distanced performance.


Providing Unrestricted Grants to Charities

An unrestricted grant can be used by a charitable organisation for any purpose that furthers its mission. These grants maximise flexibility and effectiveness for charities to cover operational expenses or where needs are greatest.

A £150,000 unrestricted grant was made to a children’s charity helping children and young people in crisis in the UK. The charity helps pay for a range of necessities and costs that most would expect children in the UK to have, but which their parents or carers cannot afford.

Improving Children’s Quality of Life

A $61,500 grant was made to a Croatian charity which helps children battling malignant diseases. The organisation provides individual and group therapy for parents, legal and other professional assistance to help families obtain social and medical services and free accommodation for family members whose children are receiving treatment. Since its founding, the charity has helped more than 1,500 families.
