    It's an organization that is national in scope. What foundations generally do is distribute money to what they deem are worthy causes.

    Something that is national in scope has an effect on the whole country and not just one region. For example, a national foundation would donate to charities in every region of the country. The American Red Cross is national in scope because it has chapters in every state in the country.
