Ranking the 10 Most Profitable Non-Profits

During their most recent fiscal years, 100 of the nation’s largest charities reported an increase of 10 percent in private donations, receiving $54.4 billion in support collectively. A stark contrast to last year, when donations fell by four percent.

So how can you be sure your money will be used properly by a nonprofit organization when you donate to them? With an ever-growing number of unscrupulous non-profits competing for your donations, it’s worth knowing just how a 501(c)(3) does (and doesn’t) spend your money. How much of your money actually goes to the cause? We’ve done some research for you and compiled a list of the 10 most profitable non-profit organizations that are well known to serve the mission they promise to.

What Is a Non-Profit Organization?

Unlike for-profit businesses, organizations with nonprofit status have been granted tax exemption by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) because their activities advance a social cause. According to the IRS, a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization must have several distinct characteristics. We’ve listed them below.

They must have a charitable purpose

Nonprofits focus on a specific charitable mission. Examples include:

  • relief of the poor, the distressed, or the underprivileged
  • advancement of religion
  • advancement of education or science
  • erecting or maintaining public buildings, monuments, or works
  • lessening the burdens of government
  • lessening neighborhood tensions
  • eliminating prejudice and discrimination
  • defending human and civil rights secured by law
  • combating community deterioration and juvenile delinquency
  • testing for public safety
  • fostering national or international amateur sports competition
  • preventing cruelty to children or animals

They cannot benefit private interests

  • It may not benefit the non-profit’s creator or the creator’s family, or shareholders.
  • No part of the net earnings may benefit any person having a personal and private interest in the activities of the organization.

They must tread lightly in politics

  • It may not attempt to influence legislation as a substantial part of its activities. This is substantially different than for-profit businesses,
  • It may not participate in any campaign activity for or against political candidates.

Is It Bad for a Non-profit To Make a Profit?

Absolutely not. A common misconception about non-profits is that they shouldn’t make profits. But a good not-for-profit organization needs to be sustainable, which involves making profits and even investing money. The difference with these non-profit organizations is that the profits go to benefit the organization, not the owners or shareholders. A non-profit business uses profits to advance its programs while for-profit businesses distribute profits to their owners or stockholders.

Where Does the Money Go?

Non-profit organizations divide their expenses into three categories. Looking at these numbers is a good indication of whether the organization is reputable or not. These categories include:

  • programs
  • administration
  • fundraising expenses in the nonprofit sector

Expenses on fundraising involve requesting financial support from donors. Some examples of these expenses include leading and promoting fundraising campaigns, securing sponsorships, maintaining donor lists, and organizing banquets, among others. Other fundraising costs may include:

  • paying staff workers
  • travel and lodging
  • meals
  • advertising
  • providing entertainment at meetings with potential donors

Unscrupulous practices are usually evident when fundraising expenses exceed program expenses.

Program expenses are expenses in the nonprofit sector that are directly related to completing the nonprofit’s mission. Examples include:

  • distributing clothes, food, and clean water to the poor
  • providing scholarships, shelter, and health care
  • teaching a class
  • helping in natural disaster recovery efforts

Nonprofit organizations that are reputable spend a large portion of their budgets on these programs and services. Public donors are most likely to give gifts to donors with the most allocation to this category.

Administration expenses cover the costs associated with running the nonprofit on a daily basis. These activities do not directly relate to the mission of the nonprofit, but they are vital for its survival. Some examples of these services are office management, accounting, insurance, human resources, legal counsel, payment of essential staff, and other services.

The Impact of Nonprofits on Communities

The nonprofit sector represents one of the great things about our nation. Nonprofit organizations create a sense of community, allowing individual donors and those in the private sector the opportunity to work side-by-side for a common goal. Non-profit organizations help shape our ideals into something concrete, transforming hopelessness into joyful anticipation. 

There are over 1.5 million nonprofit charities in America. They tirelessly work behind the scenes, raising money for any number of direct and indirect costs. Yet, a lot of the time, the only thing we hear when we read about such organizations are phrases like:

  • “program service revenue”
  • “nonprofit status”
  • “board members”
  • “government grants”
  • “annual revenue”
  • “private interest”
  • “foundation grants”
  • “financial reports”
  • “net earnings.” 

These nonprofit organizations serve a wide range of functions. Through fund-raising events, volunteers, and a vision of a better world, non-profits accomplish things like:

  • Feed the hungry through soup kitchens, food drives, and food pantries
  • Help people learn to read
  • Help refugees get a new start in this country
  • Save household pets from abuse and neglect
  • Rebuild after disasters like fires and floods
  • Help students attend college via scholarships and grants
  • Protect children from abuse and neglect
  • Save the environment through conservation and activism
  • Help care for the sick and suffering
  • Raise money for schools 
  • Perform fund raising for families in crisis
  • Solicit individual donations for various causes
  • Make sure people have enough money to live on
  • Provide services to the elderly
  • Help people with their financial problems

And that’s just a fraction of what non-profit organizations do every day. Non-profits strengthen our communities and encourage leadership, goodwill, and generosity. 

Many non-profit organizations even work to help other non-profits get established. In short, non-profits do many of the things that a for-profit business would, except that nonprofits benefit whole communities and groups of people rather than private interests. 

And, of course, nonprofit businesses are not in it for the financial benefit. In the nonprofit world, board members decide how to raise money for worthy causes rather than focus on generating a profit or annual revenue. As a result, many nonprofits get by on a shoestring without needing to rent office space or hire a paid staff.

Everyone Benefits From Non-Profits

You (and everyone you know) benefit from nonprofit organizations, whether you know it or not. Of course, when something goes wrong for our neighbors, friends, or family, it’s easy to see the impact of a non-profit. 

But it can be more challenging with non-profits that are far removed. For example, you might never notice the donation buckets for your local library, but you would definitely become more aware of the library if it were no longer there for you to use. Nonprofits play a critical role in our daily lives and our future. 


Unscrupulous Non-Profit Organizations

Now let’s discuss the flip side of the coin—where greed and fraud run rampant. Donors become wise social investors by learning how to identify and avoid crooked nonprofit organizations. Look for these five red flags before you donate your hard-earned money:

Wrong Fiscal Focus

Look out for nonprofit organizations that spend the vast majority of their money on administrative and fundraising expenses rather than programs. The Better Business Bureau reports that nonprofit organizations should designate at least 65% of their funds to programming costs and no more than 35% of funds to fundraising and administration.

Negative Profit

Negative profit indicates that nonprofit organizations have poor performance compared to industry standards. If this is an ongoing trend, the not-for-profit could go under, taking your money with it. 33 out of the top 100 non-profits in 2012 had negative profits at the end of the year.

Pending Lawsuits/under Investigation

If the IRS or another organization is suspicious of the actions of certain nonprofit organizations, it is best not to trust your money with them. Not only could they have questionable practices, but they might lose their 501(c)(3) status and you could lose your tax break.

CEO/ED Power

The board is supposed to be in charge of the charity, not the CEO or Executive Director. Too much power with the CEO/ED could cause suspicion for benefiting private interests.

Excessive Pressure

Avoid nonprofit organizations that apply too much pressure for you to give immediately. This is particularly true if you get a phone call from a fundraiser. They should be willing to operate on your timetable.

Ten Unscrupulous Non-Profit Organizations

These are just a few of the hundreds of nonprofit organizations with seemingly important missions that spend very little money on the programs they pledged to provide. Typically their names are intended to pull on the heartstrings of donators.

These nonprofit organizations receive most of their funding from the public and not through the program itself, investments, or the government. They spend most of their money on profitable fundraising.

According to The NonProfit Times, here are the 10 most unscrupulous non-profit organizations with their mission statements and a breakdown of their 2019 revenue and expenses:


IRS Ruling Year: 1996

Mission: Since 1991, The Committee for Missing Children (CMC) and its photo partners have distributed over two billion images of missing children in elementary schools throughout the USA.

We are a parent advocacy group and we serve as an information clearinghouse. Our website is created as a resource for parents of missing children as well as lawyers, other non-profits and non-governmental agencies, and the agencies that must deal with child abduction. Our belief is that the parents of missing and abducted children have a right to be involved in the search for their own children.

Families make great sacrifices and often compromise and prioritize basic family needs to provide their children with the therapies, schooling, and medical treatment necessary to improve their quality of life. There are an abundance of resources on autism trends, treatments, and research available, but the financial burdens autism families face tend to get overlooked. ASDF works with families and autism-specific organizations to take some of the financial burden off their shoulders. By providing funding for various programs that benefit an autistic child’s specific needs, ASDF lets families know they are not alone in their efforts and gives them hope for the future.
