Picture of runners running a race

The top 100 charities with the most revenue are massive and diverse. With each charity earning between $548.7 million and $10 billion in revenues, these organizations combined earn $141.9 billion in revenues each year and have $278.8 billion in investable assets.

Mission-wise, foundations (including donor-advised funds) are the most common, with ~20% of the top 100 charities. International development and relief organizations come second, with ~12% of the charities. Third place is surprising: Pharmaceutical charities set up by drug companies to help people pay for their prescription medications. After that are research institutes, sports leagues, religious organizations, and a variety of others.
