Hello,
You're in the right article. It is displayed in 6 pages. If you click "Next," it will take you to the next page.

Alternatively, you could use the "article index." If you click "Top 34 Large Organizations," you will find that portion of the list. If you click, "Top 33 Medium Organizations," you will find that portion. And finally if you click "Top 33 Small Organizations," you will find the final portion of the list.

That is incorrect, the Nonprofit list is available for free, above, in 6 pages. You can choose to purchase the list for download in spreadsheet format. Purchases of the list packages include additional information and help support the magazine's research.
