the share of revenue from public funds

THE SHARE OF PUBLIC FUNDS RELATIVE TO ALL NON-GOVERNMENTAL ORGANISATIONS’ REVENUE (2009-2017)

The share of public funds in total revenue of non-governmental organisations had been decreasing from 2012 to 2016. It finally increased slightly in comparison to the previous year in 2017, namely from 35.34 % in 2016 to 35.57 % in 2017. This is still significantly less than in 2010, when the share was 40,01%.

Around 65% of funds originate in other sources, such as donations, memberships, sales revenue etc. 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 average share of funds from public sources in total NGO income is 58.0%.

 

THE SHARE OF GDP ALLOCATED BY THE STATE TO NON-GOVERNMENTAL ORGANISATIONS (2009-2017)

The second indicator that is based on the share of GDP allocated by the state to NGOs, is also far from encouraging. In 2017, 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.
