IRS Releases Financial Data On Charities From 2012 Returns

The Internal Revenue Service in its recently-released Statistics of Income (Winter 2016) discloses extensive financial data regarding Nonprofit Charitable Organizations and Donor-Advised Funds. The data was compiled from Forms 990 and 990-EZ filed for tax year 2012. Non-profit charitable organizations had assets of $3.3 trillion. They received over $1.7 trillion in total revenue (nearly 75% of which came from program services). Charities holding $10 million or more in assets filed only 8% of the tax returns, but accounted for 92% of overall charitable assets.
