There are over 8,000 nonprofits incorporated in Philadelphia.

That number needs some context, though, and the first question that demands to be asked is this: What kind of scale are we talking about here?

We plan to dive in to that question deeper in the future, but to begin to answer it, here’s a list of the 25 largest nonprofits incorporated in Philadelphia, ranked by income, according to GuideStar. (The first number listed is a nonprofit’s income, the second is its assets.)

From our Partners

Some thoughts on all this:

And some further questions we have:

  • Why aren’t there more foundations on the list?
  • Why are there so many nonprofits associated with Penn?
  • How much do these organizations’ CEOs and EDs make?
  • Which of these are having the biggest impact on the city?
