We are a Long Island, New York Insurance Risk Management firm representing
several large non-profits and would like to market our services to
other non-profits. We are interested in obtaining a list of
non-profits in Nassau, Suffolk and Queens counties. Ideally this list
should include number of employees, number of group homes(if any)and
operating budget.
Would you be able to assist us in locating such a list? 
Thank you.

Would you need a ready made list or would a source where you can
retrieve this information suffice?

Please disregard my previous comment. The source I located does not
provide all the information you require.

Your reference to "group homes" leads me to believe you have a
specific type of non-profit in mind?

Can you tell me a bit more about what types of groups you wish to
target?  Environmental non-profits?  Social services groups?  Think
tanks?  Everyone?

Additionally, there are zillions of smaller operations, with, say
under-20 employees.  Do you really want a comprehensive list of all
non-profits, or are you chiefly interested in the larger

A bit more perspective would be a great help in focusing my research.

No need to respond to my earlier posting, as I was able to access a
list of ALL the registered non-profits in New York State, and select
those in Long Island and Queens.

The list includes name and address information, along with the EIN
number (used for IRS reporting).  It does not include any size
information, like employees or budget.

However, there are additional sources of information that can most
likely create such lists, and I've included contact information for
these groups, below.

I trust this information fully answers your question.  

However, please don't rate this answer until you have everything you
need.  If you would like any additional information, just post a
Request for Clarification to let me know how I can assist you further,
and I'm at your service.

All the best,



The list of 6,638 non-profits in Nassau, Suffolk and Queens is here,
as a spreadsheet file: 

Please save this file to your local system, as the above link is not permanent. 

The file was created from the records of the NYS Attorney General's
office, Charities Bureau.  You can access the full list (for all of
NYS) here:

Despite its name, it includes non-profits that are not usually thought
of as "charities".

The Charities Bureau *may* be able to provide a list that contains
fuller information, especially budget information.  You can contact
them at:

to request additional information.


There are two services available that have comprehensive listings of
non-profits, and who can probably custom-tailor databases with
organization information, budget information, names of executives, and
so on.

The two groups are Guidestar and the Economic Research Institute:

Guidestar's main page is here:
Connecting people with nonprofit information

and their information on purchasing custom-tailored data sets is here:
Custom Data Services

ERI's page is here:
Public Domain Tax-Exempt Source Data 

and their contact information is:

Tel: 800.627.3697 | 425.556.0205
Fax: 800.753.4415 | 425.885.5091

Although ERI clearly has the capability to create a list of
non-profits in LI, it wasn't entirely clear to me whether they make
such a service routinely available on a fee basis.  Your best bet
would be to contact them directly and let them know what you need.

Again, if there's anything else I can do for you on this one, just let me know.

Thank you for your timely reply.

Just to give you a bit more information regarding our request...

We're targeting non-profits that have clients with developmental
disabilities i.e. Down Syndrome, Multiple Sclerosis, Cerebral Palsy

We are interested in larger organizations with a minimum of 200
employee's. The organization would have not only group homes but
rehabilitation services i.e. vocational training, clinics, physical

Thank you.

Thanks for getting back to me.  

I hope you've had a chance to contact Guidestar, through the
information I provided earlier, as I still feel they are the best
source for creating a custom-tailored list with exactly the
information you're seeking.

In the mean time, though, I've gone back to the original list I
provided and sorted out 142 organizations in LI and Queens that have a
primary focus of health care services.

You can download the new list here:

and again, this is a temporary link, so please save this file to your
local system.

Although these are not all organizations with a focus on
rehabilitation services for the disabled, it's certainly a
small-enough list that you can begin pulling together more detailed
information on the organizations of specific interest to you.

I trust the combination of the information in this new list, along
with the services available through Guidestar, will fully meet your
original request:  assistance in locating the list you need.

However, if there's anything else I can do for you, just give me a holler!

All the best,

Sure thing.

Here's a new link to a text version of the file (the original might
have been a spreadsheet -- I don't quite remember): 

Again, it's a temporary link, so please copy it to a permanent file on
your local system.

Let me know if there's anything else I can do for you.
