In this study, 12,795 NPOs, including both registered and terminated in the Ministry of the Interior and Safety (MOIS), were surveyed to reorganize the current status of Non-Profit Organizations. This study was conducted to analyze the past and present of NPOs and to be used as policy data for the revitalization of NPOs. This study analyzed NPO’s current status into three categories: basic information, business contents, and organizational status. First, the basic information status was subdivided into the status by detailed types, regions, cities, counties, districts, sub-ministerial departments, organizational types, authoritative agencies, and established years. The status of the business contents was divided and analyzed as the business subject, purpose, area and organization type by items. In addition, the organization status included the relevant agencies and supporting entities, support methods, operation status, abolition year, certification year, support year, relevant laws, establishment foundation law and salary payment. The workforce status and structure included the number of employees, members, number of volunteers, other personnel, average age, and average education.
Finally, the decision-making structure was analyzed by dividing details into general meetings, boards of directors, operating boards, other meetings and corporate governance.
As a result, we found that the majority of NPOs had high operating rates, and NPOs were heavily distributed around the Seoul metropolitan area, Gyeonggi, and North Jeolla Province. In addition, social welfare was concentrated in the business area and type of non-profit civic groups, and it was difficult to receive support regardless of region, type of organization, year of establishment, or type of detail as a support method.
Therefore, it is important to find a way for NPOs to be established in various types and fields of business in the future, and above all, it will be important to find ways to increase the support method and support ratio so that NPOs can perform their roles well.
