Abstract

Liquid assets which non-profit institutions hold are not a source of any special interests and although the close to cash assets together with credit lines available for non-profit institution are connected with resigning from realizing a part of income or costs, non-profit institutions decide to hold some liquidity reserves. This results not only from transactional needs, but also from precautional and speculative reasons. Investment in liquid reserves resulting from speculative demand for money may be assessed by usage of capital budgeting methods. In the paper, each of these aspects of liquidity was taken into consideration and presented from non-profit perspective. Non-profit liquidity value determination may often significantly contribute to the solution of working capital management problems in these institutions.
