The amount of the 1% donations to non-governmental organizations (NGOs) was HUF 900 million (EUR 256,000) higher this year than in 2020, reports nonprofit.hu.
The National Ambulance Service Foundation was again the organization that received the most, and even managed to top up last year’s amount. This year, they received HUF 308,239,867 (EUR 877,239).
It is good news that there is a halt to the decline seen in previous years, and even a slight increase in the number of declarations sent in favor of NGOs, with 1.66 million people, some 40,000 more than in previous years, taking up the opportunity. The number of beneficiary NGOs is 28,241, almost 300 more than last year. The average number of supporters per NGO was 59.
