Economic Efficiency of Cultural Institutions

Małgorzata Gałecka , Katarzyna Smolny


The aim of this article is the efficiency evaluation of statutory subsidies granted to cultural institutions. From the economic point of view, the financial analysis of cultural institutions shows economic inefficiency of all institutions. Most of them are institutions that are sustained by subsidies of the organizer, generating low own revenue in relation to incurred costs. This situation might be caused by a lack of adequate incentives to increase own revenue due to organizer’s (local government’s) subsidies ensuring, at least theoretically, coverage of costs of facility maintenance and the costs of their activities.
