These are Philadelphia’s 25 biggest nonprofits by income

The University of Pennsylvania has been number one every time we've published this list. But there have been other changes....

Close to 9,000 nonprofits call Philadelphia home, according to GuideStar.org.

The scale, type and mission of those organizations varies widely, and just scanning the GuideStar listing is eye-opening — even for those of us who cover the sector day-in and day-out.

We’ve brought you lists of the biggest nonprofits by income before — in 2017 and 2018 — and if you are keeping track, you’ll see little change in the players, but marked change in some of the rankings.

There is no change at the very top, however. The University of Pennsylvania has been number one every time we’ve published the list. It’s not only first out out the 8,979 nonprofits in Philadelphia, but first out of the 76,440 nonprofits in the state.

We know Philadelphia is a “Meds ‘n’ Eds” city, but what percentage of the top nonprofits by income falls in each category? Hover over the pie chart in the graphic we’ve created to see the percentage of meds, eds, or “other” in the top 25; hover over the radial chart to see the number of nonprofits in each category in the top 10.

A final caveat: This list is based on 2018, 2017 and 2016 figures on file at GuideStar for each organization. We’ve included the year of the most recent 990 in parenthesis in each entry.
