In the modern world, organizations that have based their activities not on economic but social benefits are becoming more widespread. Non- governmental non-profit organizations bring together individuals and/or entities for meeting economic, public, social, cultural, environmental and other interests, needs for political will, religious service, etc. Such organizations are usually not commercially active, so finding sources of funding or fundraising is an important component of their business activity. Different types of funding sources and different approaches to attracting such funding can be applied to each type of non- governmental non-profit organization. Accounting of such funding and the cost of its finding is the core of transparent activity of these organizations and reflection of the results of their work.
