THEMES FOR GIVING
support to mraginalized groups
In 2018 Catalyst Balkans processed 2,863 reports on charitable giving in the Giving
Balkans database. This represents mass individual giving, donations by companies and
individuals for the development of their communities.
When it comes to the frequency of donation instances, mass individual
donors (36.9%) have taken the largest ratio with an increase from last year’s
percentage, while corporations and SMEs (36.4%) follow quite closely, despite
a decrease in their activity. Individual donors (7.5%) have participated in
giving less often this year also. If we look at the donated values, the corporate
sector was the most generous and has donated an overwhelmingly large
percentage of the total recorded amount (71.3%).
This year, the four most supported themes – healthcare (29.9%), support
to marginalized groups (25.2%), education (13.3%) and poverty relief (8.2%)
have attracted 76.6% of all instances of charitable giving.
Individuals, families, and institutions have an interchangeable
relationship when it comes to the distribution of donation instances;
this year, they jointly share the position of the most frequent
recipient – with 31% instances received respectively. Nonprofits (27%)
and local/national governments (7.3%) follow behind.
