The NPT 2013 Top 100: Who's #1?

For the 25th time in the history of The NonProfit Times, we have unveiled the NPT Top 100. And for the sixth year in a row, the YMCA of the USA came in at number one in our study of the top grossing nonprofits.

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).
You can view the full report on our website, in addition to an exclusive interview with Dan Romano of Grant Thornton, who broke down the NPT 2013 Top 100. 


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.
