The following four lists rank the top 100 largest community foundations by asset size, distribution rate, total transactions, and gifts per capita.

Top 100 Foundations by Distribution Rate

The distribution rate is calculated by dividing the foundation’s total grants by total assets (including supporting organizations) at the end of the foundation’s fiscal year. The percentage of total assets in donor-advised funds (Percent Total Assets DAF) is the total amount of IRS-classified donor-advised funds divided by total foundation assets.
