|Popis||The presented paper deals with the self-financing of non-government organizations and compares the current state and potential of self-financing in Slovakia and Austria. We focus on exploring the self-financing activities of NGOs in the context of maintaining a generally beneficial purpose for which they were based. We draw on the comparable findings of primary research conducted in Slovakia and Austria, showing that self-financing must be understood in a broader context than the "business" of non-government organizations and that it can be in compliance with the general benefit as the primary purpose of organizations founded on a non-profit basis.|
