This paper analyzes federal transfers to not-for-profit organizations (NPOs) in the past twelve years in Brazil. We analyze four points: i) the variations in terms of absolute amount of resources transferred to NPOs from the federal government; ii) the proportion of NPOs transfers relatively to other types of federal transfers, and the growth of transfers to NPOs from state and local governments; iii)in which policy areas are federal transfers to NPOs focused; and iv) the degree of concentration of transferred resources to NPOs. We did not find a clear pattern in terms of the amount of resources transferred to NPOs in the last decade, despite a tendency of growth during this period. There is sharp variation, which contrasts with the steady growth of federal transfers to subnational governments.
