Which Principles Are Usedin Obtaining Free Resources In Non-Profit Organizations


  • Barbora Čapková
  • Jiří Novotný


Funding from the European funds will be soon over and nonprofit organizations are facing the question of how to be financed and how to maintain their services. Currently, there are organizations which are able to obtain free resources and are largely or entirely independent of government and European grants. The aim is to highlight those functional elements in obtaining free resources and support organizations that have less experience with this form of financing. The information obtained through structured interviews with open questions are compiled by qualitative analysis process. By conducting semi-structured questions, the emphasis was given on the way of work that issued by organizations which are successful in obtaining free resources. The research suggests that acquisition of free resources isn’t often perceived as a project and generally is no systematic adherence to the principles of project management.
