FIGURE: PUBLIC FUNDING OF NON-GOVERNMENTAL ORGANISATIONS BY MINISTRIES AND MUNICIPALITIES

 

 

The total amount of funds acquired by non-governmental organisations from public sources had been steadily increasing until 2011, when for the first time, a slight drop occurred in relation to the previous year. Since 2012, the amount has been fluctuating, but until 2016 always remained below the 2012 level, when it was the highest (€ 294.66 million). In 2017, total amount of funds from public sources allocated to NGOs finally reached a new high at € 310.71 million.

Overall, non-governmental organisations acquire more funds from municipalities than ministries. Since 2014, municipal funds have been increasing, while the ministry funds have been decreasing up until 2016. In 2016 and 2017 they started to increase again in comparison to the previous years.

DISTRIBUTION OF PUBLIC FUNDING OF NON-GOVERNMENTAL ORGANISATIONS RELATIVE TO THE STATUS OF OPERATING IN THE PUBLIC INTEREST

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

According to data, the non-governmental organisations to which the state has acknowledged to be acting in the public interest, are highly successful in acquiring public funds. They comprise all organisations that obtained the decision to have been granted the status of operating in the public interest (e.g. societies with the status of a society in the public interest), or for which the law prescribes that their activity is in the public interest (e.g. charities). Although this refers only to 21,55 % of all non-governmental organisations, in 2017 they received 78,97 % of all funds remitted by ministries to non-governmental organisations (€69,54 million of 85,26  million) At the level of municipalities, the share is even higher: they received 75,01 % of all municipal public funds that were remitted to non-governmental organisations (€ 84,25 million of 112,33 million).
