the share of revenue from public funds

THE SHARE OF PUBLIC FUNDS RELATIVE TO ALL NON-GOVERNMENTAL ORGANISATIONS’ REVENUE (2009-2016)

In recent years, the share of public funds relative to all revenue of non-governmental organisations has been decreasing: in 2016, it was 36.16%, which is a 3.854% decrease from 2010 when it was 40.01%. Around 65% of funds originate in other sources, such as donations, memberships, sales revenue and the like. Based on the share of public funds, Slovenia is not comparable to other EU countries, where, according to the latest major Johns Hopkins International Comparative Study from 2013, the global average for this share is 32.2%, and in the EU, it is 58.0%.

 

THE SHARE OF GDP ALLOCATED BY THE STATE TO NON-GOVERNMENTAL ORGANISATIONS (2009-2016)

The second indicator that is based on the share of GDP allocated by the state to NGOs, is also far from encouraging. In 2016, Slovenia allocated only 0.72% of its GDP to non-governmental organisations, whereas the global average for this share is 1.38%, and the EU countries allocated to their non-governmental organisations an average of 2.20% GDP.
