The most data are available for organizations that file tax returns electronically, but some data (e.g., total assets, cause area, contact info) are available for organizations that paper-file tax returns.
We track hundreds of dimensions on tax-exempt organizations from 2010 to present. Our proprietary records linkage algorithm identifies amounts spent on individual people and programs over time – even if they are written differently on each tax return. These data can reveal trends in executive compensation, program expenses, program revenues, and more.
Our data scientists compare tax forms to bring together related variables.
Match across years
Our technology links records on individuals and programs, even if they are written slightly differently each year.
Derive new variables
We compute new variables to add to the dataset, e.g., fundraising efficiency.
Data sources include IRS Forms 990, 990-PF, 990-EZ, 990-N, Schedules, EO Business Master File, and National Center for Charitable Statistics.
