23 new entrants in this year's Charity 250 Index

02 May 2017 News

Dulwich College is the highest placed of 23 new entrants in this year’s haysmacintyre/Charity Finance Charity 250 Index, entering in 68th place.

The index, published by Charity Finance magazine, measures the largest charities outside the top 100, ranking entrants by their average annual income over the past three years.

This year it is topped by social welfare organisation Catch22, up from seventh in 2016, which now has an average annual income of £57.7m.

The minimum income needed to enter the index rose from £20.6m to £21.2m year-on-year, with Bryanston School achieving that figure in the latest results.

Dulwich College recorded a £39.3m income, while other new entrants include Aga Khan Foundation (in 72nd place with an income of £38.4m) and the London Marathon Charitable Trust (135 – £28.5m).

The highest risers within the index are youth charity the Challenge Network, which jumped 73 places from 148 to 75, and the International Bible Students Association, which rose from 202 to 130.

While those that have fallen from the accompanying Charity 100 Index to the list include farm animals disease research charity Pirbright Institute, which is now 9th in the 250 list.

A noteworthy exit from the list is Movember Europe, a member of the global Movember Foundation, which made its debut at 190 last year.

The charity’s trustees plan to reposition the charity from being known as an “annual fundraising campaigner” by developing a “year-round, diversified fundraising strategy”.
