Philanthropy Research Intern at Non-Profit Incubator
Unlike most NGOs, NPI does not work directly on the ground, serving people through projects, volunteers, donations, or research. Instead, as its name suggests, NPI is an incubator for NGOs and social enterprises, nurturing them from undeveloped ideas or small, two to five person projects to become professional, self-sufficient organizations.
NPI provides selected non-profits with free or subsidized office space and supplies, IT support, mentoring, training, and, perhaps most importantly, a well-established network of government officials, business and individual donors, and other NGOs.
To date NPI has incubated more than 500 NGOs and social enterprises from its nine offices and more than thirty project sites stationed around China from Shanghai to Shenzhen and Inner Mongolia. It is currently the largest non-profit incubator in China, with a staff of about 250 around the country.
