We all contribute to the federal budget through our tax dollars, yet we are cut off from decisions about how that money is used by the government. For the past 30 years, NPP has been the nation’s only nonprofit, nonpartisan federal budget research group that is working for you – breaking down the data so you can understand and participate in national debates about how your tax dollars are spent and how our nation resolves its fiscal challenges.
Your gift supports NPP’s in-house research, data, and outreach team as we analyze federal budget numbers to make them relevant to you and your community. Our resources, interactive tools, and popular education materials give you the information you need to track your tax dollars, understand how the federal budget affects you and your family, and reach your elected officials with your own priorities for our nation.
Yes! NPP relies on people like you to make our work possible. We are supported solely through individuals and foundations, and do not receive funds from the government or corporations. A donation in any amount helps us keep the federal budget accountable and responsive to the priorities of the American people.
As a small, efficient 501(c)3 nonprofit, NPP stretches your dollar a long way. Unlike large think tanks or research institutions, NPP trims all the fat out of our budget to get a lot done with modest resources. For example:
Yes! As an organization whose mission is to make the federal budget transparent and accountable, NPP takes our own financial accountability very seriously.

In FY2012, 76% of all our expenses went to program and research, with only 24% going to administration and development.
NPP has a five-star rating on Guidestar and has received the Guidestar Exchange Seal in recognition of our commitment to transparency. We were selected as a five-star Top Rated Charity in 2012 by Great Nonprofits.
