Abstract in different language: The sustainability of any organisation means its capacity to fulfil its mission in the most effective way. In other words, sustainability means that an organisation works continuously for as long as possible in the marketplace of the services provided. The basis to ensure the sustainability is to create and adopt strategies. Strategic management has become an essential part of non- governmental organisations (NGOs). Although it is difficult for an NGO to create a long-term strategy when its donors support this NGO either for a specific purpose (and thus not for creating a strategy) or for a short term period (usually for one year which makes it really difficult to plan a strategy and certain steps when their financing is insecure). This scientific paper presents research results of the current state of sustainability of non-governmental organisations in the Slovak Republic. Using secondary data analysis of the NGO Sustainability index compiled annually by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), two questionnaires were created. One was dedicated to Slovak NGOs whereas the second one was sent to an expert group in Slovakia. Primary data obtained by the sociological questionnaire and by the Delphi method were analysed with relevant statistical methods. The results of the analysis allow us to formulate proposals to strengthen the sustainability of NGOs in Slovakia. The presentation of these results enables us to fulfil the scientific goal of the paper which is to evaluate the current state of the sustainability of non- governmental organisations in Slovakia and propose internal factor-based solutions to enhance their sustainability. In this article, we did not analyse the external and legislative factors, e.g. changes in tax assignation system due to the limited scope of the paper.
