Economic presentation

  1. 1. Non-profits: Not so Small After All A quick survey of the economic impact non-profits have nationally and in Texas. By: Erin McClarty
  2. 2. Non-profits ≠ No money? The word “non-profit” can be incredibly deceptive. Most believe non-profit to be analogous to little to no money.
  3. 3. Why is this??? • Few understand just how immense an impact non-profits have on the economy. This can often be attributed to two (amongst many) things: • A misperception as to the number of non-profits that exist. • The stereotypes often portrayed by society.
  4. 4. Clarification • But, a quick survey of recent statistics shows that non-profit organizations are not only “profiting”, but many are beginning to pace for-profit organizations as well.
  5. 5. In fact, Nationally... • ...the number of 501(3)(c) charities increased by 32.7% and foundations 63.6% between 1998 and 2008. • 2007 public charities accounted for over 1.4 trillion in total revenues. • 2006, non-profits accounted for 8.11% of all wages and salaries paid in the United States. • ...there are 1,017,479 non-profit organizations as of today. (Sources: NCCS Core Files 2007; IRS Business Master File 04/2009 (with modifications by the National Center for Charitable Statistics at the Urban Institute to exclude foreign and governmental organizations, Nonprofit Almanac 2008.)
  6. 6. In Texas..... • ...there are 69, 558 organizations, 31, 393 of which file. • ...the organizations that must file yearly account for $59,000,613,663 in revenues and have over $59,000,613,663 in assets. • ...Texan Foundations have awarded over 1,137,359,328 in grants while Charitable organizations have awarded 1,350,319,187 in grants. All of this is then re-invested back into local business and communities Sources: IRS Business Master File (modified by NCCS) 04/2010; NCCS 501(c)(3) Public Charities Core File 2008; IRS Business Master File 04/2009 (with modifications by the National Center for Charitable Statistics at the Urban Institute to exclude foreign and governmental organizations; IRS Statistics of Income, July 2009: <>. Prepared by the National Center for Charitable Statistics at the Urban Institute .
  7. 7. Texas Continued..... • Also, the number of Texan 501(3)(c) charities has increased 75.3 percent with Foundations slightly ahead at 77.3% between 1998 to 2008. • In 2009 there were 11,278,559 tax returns made. Of these, 2,160,102 had charitable deductions amounting to $12,856,691. Total Returns Made Returns with Charitable Deductions 16% 84%
  8. 8. Charts The following are two charts detailing the top 10 non-profits in Texas by Gross Revenue and by assets. Keep in mind: • How incredibly large the numbers are. In many instances individual institutions handle several millions dollars. • These are just the top ten non-profits (for each category respectively) in Texas. Imagine how much non-profits contribute to the state cumulatively.

  11. 11. Conclusion • In the end, it is important that tax-payers, governments, and businesses begin to understand just how large a role non-profits play in federal and state revenues. • Realize that non-profits contribute heavily not only in moral currency, but monetary currency as well. • By understanding how large a role non-profits play economically, perhaps people will begin to understand why investing in them is important and see to it that each and every one sustains.
