The 2013 Power And Influence Top 50

Sixteen years ago today The NonProfit Times released the first edition of the Power and Influence Top 50. The report listed the 50 nonprofit executives that we determined were at the top of their field. Since then, there have been many multiple-time honorees and some new ones.

With this year's edition, there is quite a bit of turnover.

The 2013 Power and Influence Top 50, included in the August 1 edition of NPT, features 18 first-time honorees. In addition, there are three returning executives who will be returning to our September Power and Influence Top Gala in Washington, D.C., after some time away. The evening’s keynote will be national commentator Juan Williams.

Some of the new faces in this year's list include:

  • James (Jim) Manis, the Mobile Giving Foundation;
  • Jacqueline Novogratz, Acumen;
  • Anthony D. Romero, American Civil Liberties Union;
  • Vanessa Kirsch, New Profit Inc; and,
  • Chris Anderson, Sapling Foundation/TED

Of course, the Power and Influence Top 50 is not the only part of the August 1 issue. Other major articles include a piece on retaliation lawsuits, restructuring at the Girl Scouts, and how World Wildlife Fund and other organizations handle compressed workweek schedules.
