Care Page Headers - NPOS & Charities
Charities are organisations that raise money and represent a cause, people or plight. The requirements that define and qualify an organisation as a charity are different within each country; however, typically, they will be set up as non-profit.

Non-Profit Organisations, also known as NPOs, are companies where all money raised is given or invested in support of the objective or mission of the organisation. Though money raised may be used to pay staff, business premises, and other expenses, no money is typically given to owners or stakeholders like conventional businesses.

Charities and NPOs, directly through their actions, raise awareness, funds and mobile people in making positive change happen for so many good causes.

  WHAT ARE CHARITIES AND NON-PROFIT ORGANISATIONS?

Charities - Images (1)
Nearly all businesses and organisations are set up to make money. Profit is typically any money made after all expenses have been paid. For example, if a company earns 1000 dollars a month but pays 600 dollars to staff, the profit made in any given month (pre-taxes) is 400 dollars. Any profits are typically paid to the business owners, staff as bonus payments, and investors and shareholders as dividends.

Unlike traditional businesses, charities and non-profit organisations will typically have trustees rather than owners, and any profit made is spent solely on the mission or objective of the organisation. Setting up an organisation as a charity or NPO will typically get tax relief and reduced rates in the country where they operate.

The trustees and staff will raise awareness for the cause they represent and work on improving it somehow. Millions of charities and NPOs represent various plights, from medical conditions supporting abuse victims to causes affecting millions worldwide. People who donate to a charity or those who work for such causes will typically care passionately and want to help improve the lives of those affected.
