Non-profit organizations are a specific type of entities in the national economy that significantly helps to improve the living standards of the country’s population. The article focuses on the financial performance of entities in the non-profit sector of the Slovak Republic depending on the financial instrument of tax allocation, taking into account the time factor during which the entities operate in the non-profit sector. The aim of the article is to analyse the financial performance of non-profit organizations providing services of general interest and foundations with the subsequent specification of the results of the issue. We work with the hypothesis that in terms of financial performance, foundations will perform better compared to non-profit organizations. Segmentation, comparison and descriptive methods were used in the solved issue. Only in one of the analysed groups did we come to the result that the non-profit organization was able to obtain more funds than the foundation through the tax allocation tool in 2019. In the case of the other groups analysed, foundations were more financially efficient, whose performance significantly exceeded that of non-profit organizations. In terms of market life, based on the analysis, the most efficient organizations were organizations with a market life of 1-5 years and with a longer market life, their financial performance decreased. In the case of foundations, we found that the highest performance is achieved by foundations with a market existence of 15 - 20 years. We can therefore state that the established hypothesis was only partially confirmed, although in most cases foundations were more financially efficient.
Key words: non-profit organization / performance of non-profit subject / tax allocation / non-profit sector
