Nonprofit revenue comparison

From Strategic Planning

Wikimedia Strategy Plan 2009-2010 The following table shows the revenues, by source, for a few non-profits. Some were selected because of the amount of revenue they bring in; this gives an idea of how much potential there might be to grow donations. Others were selected because of similarities they might share with us. Another purpose is to see the various sources of revenue and the percentage each revenue source is of the total. It would be great to get data from some more organizations, particularly those between the $20MM and $100MM level. It would also be interesting to see more info from organizations which have a “chapters” model; I could only find financial info for Greenpeace USA not for Greenpeace International.

Disclaimer, numbers are rounded and rough; percents are rounded so may add up to more than 100%. In cases where revenue is separated into unrestricted/temporarily and permanently restricted, I only took the unrestricted amounts.
