Summary/Abstract: The paper presents the results based on the survey about the development of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in Poland. The authors present the owner’s opinions of NGOs managers. Moreover, the authors presented characteristics of the non-governmental organizations and the area of their activities, areas of intersectoral cooperation, difficulties in the operation, and other factors. We used: descriptive, tabular and graphic methods to describe the changes and opinions about factors of non-governmental organization development. The study was conducted via telephone interviews with representatives of computer-aided, non-governmental organizations active in rural areas. The survey found that organizations located in rural areas have their own traditional identity and specificity. Most of them work in the city (93.7%) and only (6.3%) in the village. These are small organizations that generally employ up to 9 people.
