United Way Again Named “America’s Favorite Charity” by Chronicle of Philanthropy NonProfit. Times Shows United Way #1 in Public Support.
United Way Worldwide Revenue up 3%.
Two top philanthropy trade media publications released their annual rankings of America’s charities this week.
United Way was ranked #1 in The Chronicle of Philanthropy list of America's Favorite Charities and, The NonProfit Times’ NPT 2019 Top 100 shows that we held a ranking of #1 in public support (despite a slip from #3 to #5 in total revenue).
Both publications focus their rankings on U.S.-based donations, but by only considering revenue generated in the U.S they are only telling only part of United Way Worldwide’s story of global growth and impact.
As per the recent 2018-2019 Revenue Results report, United Way Worldwide revenue grew 3% year-over-year. Of the total $4.8 billion raised; $1.36 billion came from outside the U.S. -- a nearly 23% increase over the previous year and leading all other United Way increases.
United Way remains the mission of choice for people, organizations, and corporations across our county—and increasingly around the world.
