Who's on Top?

OregonBusiness magazine just released its ranking of the Top 100 Nonprofits to work for in Oregon. I didn't make it to the award ceremony last night, but received the rankings this morning.

The organization with which I am associated, Oregon Children’s Theatre, ranked 26th in the “Small Company” category (with a score of 479.2). Woohoo! We're 26th!

Broadway Rose Theatre beat us at 21st place in the same group (score of 485.7); however, as a musical theater company it has the advantage of lots of happy singing and dancing to boost morale. Our friends at Portland Center Stage reached 30th place in the “Large” category (more than 75 employees) with a score of just under 411. I believe that means we kicked their asses, and I don't care who knows it. Oregon Shakespeare Festival brought up the rear in that category at 33rd place (score of 406.2).

Our other friends at the Regional Arts and Culture Council placed 9th in the “Medium” category (24-74 employees) with a respectable score of nearly 474. The table provided by OregonBusiness describes RACC’s purpose as providing “pre-natal to end-of-life social services to low-income people.” That sounds about right since they support artists.

The only other arts group in the rankings was Caldera, scoring 9th in the small category with score of 499.3 -- very well done.

Who ranked at the very top? Susan G. Komen for the Cure, OR/SWW Affiliate in the large category with a score of 520.7; Idealist.org in the middle group at 519.4; and, Oregon Rehabilitation carrying the small group (with a whopping score of 537.7).
