New Philanthropy Capital (NPC), which aims to improve the effectiveness of charities, has strengthened its board with the appointment of two new trustees.
Baroness Neuberger and Rishi Khosla join NPC’‘s nine existing trustees, bringing with them a wealth of business experience and knowledge of the charitable sector.
Baroness Neuberger, a former health spokesperson for the Liberal Democrats in the House of Lords, and former CEO of the Kings’ Fund, is the Prime Minister’s Champion on Volunteering. Rishi Khosla is CEO and founder of Copal Partners, which produces financial research and has recently agreed a partnership in India with NPC.
David Robins, chair of NPC’‘s board of trustees, said: “We are absolutely delighted that Julia and Rishi are joining our board. Julia’‘s experience and passion for the voluntary sector will be invaluable. Similarly, it is wonderful to have Rishi’‘s input at a time when NPC and Copal are launching an exciting new partnership and developing NPC’s mission on the international stage.”
Baroness Neuberger, who holds a number of executive and non-executive positions, including Chair of the Commission for the Future of Volunteering, which reported recently, said: “I am delighted to be joining NPC. I am passionately committed to the voluntary sector upping its game and believe that NPC’‘s research and analysis is hugely helpful in enabling charities to improve their performance.”
Copal Partners provides outsourced research for investment banks and consultancies and has agreed a joint venture with NPC to conduct research into charities in India in the same way NPC already does in the UK. Rishi Khosla is a board member of TiE UK and previously he managed the private equity and venture capital activities of Lakshmi N. Mittal and worked for GE Capital.
Rishi Khosla said: “I am very excited to be involved with NPC, clearly a pioneer in philanthropy services with its unique approach of helping maximize the impact of donations. I look forward to the NPC- Copal partnership which I believe will result in tangible benefits for donors, charities and the communities that they serve in India.”
