The 2014 Philanthropy 400

Giving to the nation’s biggest and most-popular charities grew by more than 10 percent last year, fueled largely by affluent donors who are reordering the top ranks of America’s nonprofits.

Four of the 10 charities that appear at the top of The Chronicle’s Philanthropy 400 are organizations that raise money mostly from the wealthy by offering donor-advised funds, including Fidelity Charitable (No. 2), which is less than $200-million shy of ousting United Way Worldwide from the top of the list.

That’s an unusual accomplishment for a nonprofit only 23 years old.
