Philanthropy 400: a New No. 1, and a Record Year in Giving

For 26 years, The Chronicle has ranked America’s nonprofits based on the contributions they raise from individuals, foundations, and corporations. This year, for only the second time, United Way Worldwide has been pushed from the top rung — a changing of the guard that may signal a new era in philanthropy.

Total giving to the Philanthropy 400 reached $104 billion in 2015 — a record high. This year’s coverage also includes looks at how large groups are outperforming small ones and what drove big gains at some of the year’s notable organizations.
