Number of Registered Nonprofit Organizations by State, 2012

Please note: Nonprofit measures per capita should be interpreted with caution since some nonprofits conduct activities outside of the area in which they register and file. For example: Washington D.C. has a high concentration of registered nonprofits with a national or global focus but that provide little if any direct program service in the District; in Missoula Montana, the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation registered more than 600 affiliate organizations, such as its Jacksonville (FL) chapter, active in locations across the U.S.

1 501(c)(3) includes both public charities and private foundations.
