Will basic income necessarily be a government initiative?

Discussions around a basic income usually presuppose that government will necessarily have to provide this benefit.

I am aware of charities such as GiveDirectly who run trials conducting unconditional cash transfers in e.g. Uganda and Kenya, but I am not aware of larger initiatives organised by civil society with longer term views to provide regular benefits to entire nations.

Are there any worthwhile ideas being considered for NGO's to step in to provide basic income? And what may prevent NGO's from ever accomplishing such a system without government assistance or intervention?
