METHODOLOGY
Nonprofit organizations were identified from Internet database lists of tax-exempt organizations located in the 50 states and the District of Columbia. A list of the organizations was sorted by financial criteria and screened for descriptions related to Hispanic issues. Qualified organizations were sent a survey asking for information. Organizations were ranked on the basis of their annual operating budgets.

While Hispanic Business makes every attempt to locate and include the largest Hispanic nonprofit organizations in the country, we cannot list organizations that do not submit information by deadline. To ensure that a particular nonprofit organization is considered for future directories, readers may send the name of the organization, along with the contact person's name, mailing address, phone, fax, and e-mail address, via fax to (805) 964-6139 or via e-mail to research@hbinc.com.
