The income or profits of an NGO/Trust are not meant to be distributed to the promoters or shareholders

Trust Level NGO: “NGO” stands for “Non-governmental Organization” while “trust” is the word trust itself. 2. NGOs aid the government with the programs they can't already do while trusts are not dependent on the government.
