The Government Council for Non-Governmental Non-Profit Organisations is a permanent consultative, initiative and coordination body of the Government of the Czech Republic (hereinafter referred to as the “CR”) in the area of non-governmental non-profit organisations (hereinafter referred to as “NGO”s).
The Government Council for Non-Governmental Non-Profit Organisations was established by Government Resolution No. 428 of 10 June 1992 as the Council for Foundations, before being transformed under Government Resolution No 223 of 30 March 1998 into the Government Council for Non-governmental Non-Profit Organisations (hereinafter referred to as the “Council”).
The Council collates, discusses and, through its Chair, submits to the Government materials relating to NGOs and the creation of a suitable environment for their existence and activities.
Dialogue with representatives of the civil society takes place through the participation of Ministry of Culture representatives in regular meetings of the general meetings of these associations – generally once or twice each year, as well as through collaboration on the Ministry’s conceptual documents, evaluations of grant tender proceedings and consultations.
