“Of the 200,000 or so nonprofits that were created between 1975 and 2008, only 200—that’s 0.1 percent of these nonprofits—have reached $50 million in annual revenues.” – Tracy Palandjian, CEO and cofounder of Social Finance

While a shocking majority of nonprofits struggle to scale their organizations, a shift is finally happening for the industry. By adopting unique fundraising models and best practices that meet modern donor and consumer expectations, nonprofits are growing their operations in their quest for greater social impact.

To recognize and celebrate this growth, Classy publishes an annual list of the top 100 growing nonprofits on our platform. For the first time, our team of data scientists also analyzed the Classy 100 to identify common contributors to their success, or as we call them, growth trends.
