Here's a sneak peek at some of the newest insights you can explore in the updated 2023 report:

The size of the Texas nonprofit sector continues to grow.

  • There are over 130,000 nonprofits across the state of Texas.
  • The sector has grown by 22% between 2015 and 2022

Revenue for nonprofits is not matching the growth of the sector overall.

  • Despite its 22% growth, the sector's total revenue grew by only 13% across the state. This revenue growth also varies drastically by region and type of nonprofits.

The typical nonprofit is small and very young.

  • Almost ¾ of Texas nonprofits have a budget under $50,000, which is more than 60,000 organizations.
  • The typical nonprofit is only 15 years old, and almost half of the sector’s nonprofits (47%) were founded after 2010.
