А lot of foreign and Ukrainian scholars analyze role of nonprofit organizations in modern civil society. However, there is lack of literature about nonprofit organizations marketing in such developing countries as Ukraine. Marketing strategies and appropriate tools, that are the most commonly used in business sphere, in most cases, need to be adapted for using by nonprofits. We suggest NGO classification based on their spheres of influence. In particular, we suggest classifying them into such groups: professional, universal, charity and volunteer organizations. This article analyses specialities of using marketing mix by professional organizations.
