for the tag : operator:type=ngo
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:operator:type

for the "publicly available" : for the two establishments of this type I 
know, being a "outreach project" is a part of the goal. we also go there 
to help the project and not just for the poi itself, so it seems very 
positive to me to add the information.
it's over the time when helping someone different was shameful.
