Research background: Marketing as a separate area of activities does not immediately occur only in the environment of companies, but is also used in the environment of non-profit organizations. Although the activities of non-profit organizations differ significantly from the activities of commercially oriented companies, even in the case of non-profit organizations, marketing activities and tools are used to improve the overall progress of non-profit organizations.
Purpose of the article: The article deals with the analysis of marketing activities and tools that are applied in the conditions of non-profit organizations. In the case of applicable marketing tools, we will also address the question of whether it is necessary to modify traditional marketing tools in the environment of non-profit organizations. The aim of the article is to analyse the most frequently applied marketing tools in the environment of non-profit organizations.
Methods: Descriptive methods as well as comparative methods are used in the analysis in order to compare them with the commercial sector. In this article, we work with the hypothesis that the application of the marketing concept will be different compared to profit-oriented marketing and we assume that marketing strategies will require a certain degree of modification.
Findings & Value added: Based on the performed analysis, we will evaluate the findings of this issue and suggest other options for the implementation of marketing tools in the environment of non-profit organizations.
Key words: marketing of non-profit organizations / marketing tools / marketing plan / marketing strategy
