National Civil Fund

he Hungarian Parliament enacted the Law No. 50 on the National Civil Fund on 23 June 2003 that aims the strengthening of the operation of civil society organisations and the development of the third sector through grant supports.

All those private foundations and non-governmental organisations (excluding employers’ and employees’ interest groups, political parties and insurance associations) who are registered and operating in Hungary at least for a year can gain support from the Fund. The grants are distributed by the Boards composed of the representatives of civil society organisations. The principles of the grant-support system are laid down by the governing body, the Council that has a majority of delegates from civil society organisations, too.
