Released in our November 1 issue each year since 1988, the NPT Top 100 ranks organizations by total revenue (with at least 10 percent coming in the form of public support). The Y took the top spot again this year thanks to a strong combination of program revenue ($4.556 billion), public support ($827 million), and government support ($614 million). Overall, The Y's total revenue in 2012 was $6.239 billion.
Coming in at a distant second was Goodwill Industries International, which had a total revenue of $4.894 billion. Much of those funds came in the form of program service revenue ($3.404 billion).
Other organizations that made the top five this year were:
- United Way ($4.260 billion);
- Catholic Charities USA ($4.227 billion); and,
- The Salvation Army ($3.353 billion).
Not to be forgotten amidst this news is the rest of the content of the November 1 issue. Included in this month's edition of The NonProfit Times are stories about ObamaCare guidelines for nonprofits, the story of a group trying to use neuroscience to reframe human services, and an opinion piece from our Editor-in-Chief about what shape organizations are going to take in the future.
