Description Non-profit institutions are characterized by their multi-source funding. There are numerous publications on this issue, including discussions on the public financing impact on the NPO behaviour. The situation in (post)transformation countries might be different. The ongoing process of re-definition of the role NPI play and consecutive issue of the public support is not acquainted with appropriate data. After we explored absent places in the realm of existing data on the Czech non-profit sector, we designed a survey by which we map how the amount (and structure) of resources and funds of the non-profit organizations has changed in the Czech context between 2008 a 2013. The main research question is whether resp. how the changes from public sources revenues affect production (and sustainability) of the Czech non-profit organizations. Our hypotheses is that the changes in the internal structure of income of non-profit organizations will vary by organizational type, mainly by organizational size, age of organization and primary area of activity according to ICNPO classification. We obtained data directly from the NPOs registered in the Czech Republic by quantitative research (survey). While using the retrospective method of study we compared the data from 2013 with year 2008. In our contribution we introduce main findings with the ambition to verify resource dependence theory. Research in this range has not been implemented yet in the Czech context thus our results has a potential to become a significant contribution to understanding the role public income play in total income of NPOs in (post)transformation country.
