About Conference

Today, almost twenty years after the introduction of the percentage tax mechanism in Hungary and 10 years after the latest and only comparative work, a need emerges on evaluating the mechanism towards its original ambition.

What is the role of the mechanism in the support of the civil society and in the development of philanthropic culture from a longer-term perspective?

Based on the findings of the Central and Eastern European Percentage Tax Designation research study, this two-days international conference will share the lessons learnt that can be instrumental and useful to policy makers, donors and civil society actors not only in the countries that currently use the mechanism, but also in other countries that look for innovative ways of public funding towards civil society or otherwise strengthening the civil society.
