Management becomes more and more highlighted nowadays. It is a result of a dynamic development and now management science includes different kinds of analysis. A functional aspect is well-known in this discipline, and in its framework the Institute of Management and Labour Sciences at the the University of Debrecen has worked out its private research program, which is called “The functional examination of corporate management”. We have carried out diverse examinations in the framework, the authors of this article are mainly specialized in the study of the management of civic organizations. Researches were started in 2009. Currently 66 thousands of nonprofit organizations are registered nationally. We have focused on classic civic organizations from inside, these include foundations and associations, whose ratio among the nonprofit organization is about two third. Though their economic importance is undisputed, still little information is known about their managerial characteristics. Some organizations are really successful, others vegetate, and many organization only exist formally, without real operation. We have examined general managerial functions and within that we also have studied the field of managerial operations: planning, decision making, organization and control. The subject of the research was the operating of the civic organizations of Hajdú-Bihar county, we have taken sample of civic managers and carried out a questionnaire survey. Results show that many managerial functions are incompletely fulfilled, among which the most important managerial task was the subject of organization. According to managers, it is really hard to plan for more than a year in this sphere. Considering decision making, the managers examined mainly decide by their private experiences. Although organizing the managerial tasks equally influence all tasks, still the organization of corporate management was emphasized by managers. Examining the importance and the process of control, we have found that those set objectives which were defined and registered at the formation were primarily emphasized, and these are maninly attended by the managers.
