because of this , they receive tax-exempt status from the federal government.

require government funding. most NGO are non profit . 
It includes hospitals, universities, national charities, churches, and foundations.NPO can not be
associated with political, corporate groups neither should receive their funding from any of them. 
The SSE would function as a separate segment within the existing stock exchange and help social enterprises
raise funds from the public through its mechanism.
It would serve as a medium for enterprises to seek finance for their social initiatives, acquire visibility
and provide increased transparency about fund mobilisation and utilisation.
Any non-profit organisation (NPO) or for-profit social enterprise (FPSEs) that establishes the primacy of social
intent would be recognised as a SE, which will make it eligible to be registered or listed on the SSE.
17 plausible criteria under SEBI’s ICDR Regulations, 2018 include serving to eradicate hunger, poverty, malnutrition, 
promoting education, employability, equality, and environmental sustainability among others.

NPOs can raise money either through issuance of Zero Coupon Zero Principal (ZCZP) Instruments from private placement or
