This baseline measurement of the levels of philanthropic activity has allowed Catalyst to estimate that at least €5.9 million was given by companies, individuals and the diaspora during 2013 in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Corporate and mass individual giving dominated in both the amount of giving and the frequency of giving.  Corporate donors gave in greater amounts (42.4%) than mass individual donors (36.2%).  But mass individual donors were more frequently associated (40.1%) with instances of giving than corporate donors (31.8%).

Nearly 90% of giving flowed primarily through three types of recipient entities: institutions, individuals and families, and non-profit organizations.

The top three most common final beneficiary groups included children and adults with health issues 24.6%), economically vulnerable people (18.8%), and children and adults with disabilities (13.0%)
