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%.
