Star Tribune Nonprofit 100

The Star Tribune nonprofit 100 is a measure of the largest nonprofit organizations in Minnesota ranked by revenue. Data presented also includes the company's total expenses for the year, the excess of revenues over expenses, contributions, gifts, and grants as a percentage of total revenue and the total compensation of the organization's top executive.

Certain nonprofits, charities and charitable trusts registered with the state must file IRS Form 990 with the Minnesota attorney general's office each year. Most of the financial information for organizations on our list was taken from their 2014 Form 990s or from audited financial statements.

The Star Tribune's list includes the top officer and that person's total compensation, including salary, bonus and incentive compensation, other reportable compensation, contributions to retirement and other deferred compensation plans, and the value of nontaxable benefits.
