Lutheran Services of America topped The NonProfit Times' list of the 100 largest organizations for the second year in a row. The top rating is based on the 1999 fiscal year.
LSA is the largest human services network in the United States, with nearly 300 social ministry organizations in alliance with the ELCA and the Lutheran ChurchMissouri Synod. The network of hospital, social service and long-term care programs provides $6.9 billion in services in 3,000 communities each year.
To be included in the magazine's top 100, organizations must derive less than 90 percent of their revenue from program services, government grants and investments, wrote Matthew Sinclair, senior writer for The NonProfit Times.
