Methodology
Nonprofit organizations were identified from Internet database lists of tax-exempt organizations in the 50 states and the District of Columbia. A list of these 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 annual expenditures.

While HispanicBusiness magazine makes every attempt to locate and include the largest Hispanic nonprofi t organizationsin the country, we cannot list organizations that do not submit information by our deadline.

To ensure that a particular nonprofi t 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 (5549) or via e-mail to research@hbinc.com.
