 Philippine NPO Sector Assessment Report Finalized
As of 2007-08, registered non-profit organizations (NPOs) include, by legal type, around 89,000 non-stock corporations, 70,000 cooperatives, 5,000 homeowners associations and 15,000 workers organizations and trade unions. Most the of non-stock organizations are small.  The median size of their annual income and expenditures is P100,000 and their  assets and liabilities is P750,000.  These are among the findings of the Philippine NPO Sector Assessment Report finalized last July 28, 2008.
The assessment was coordinated by CODE-NGO and guided by a Local Advisory Committee composed of government and non-government representatives.  The assessment piloted the use of an NPO Sector Assessment Tool developed by the Charity Commission of England and Wales.

Regulation of these NPOs or NGOs have been rated effective to highly effective in the Report in terms of registration of the different types of NPOs. The Report also identified strategic risks to the NPO sector including those that relate to lack of information on NPOs  – unevenness of information on NPOs, in terms of dissemination and availability; lack of detailed data; and lack of distinction between profit and non-profit organizations in some government agency databases.
