This summary seeks to clarify the concept of volunteering and to identify related social actions in Hungary. Social cooperation and solidarity have been key issues of recent years and decades, in which voluntary work and selfless individual or community activities have become more and more prominent. More focus was put on volunteering in Hungary after the regime change, leading the NGO/ non-profit sector to strengthen and expand and voluntary activities to grow in importance. Voluntary work has become a value and social achievement. The study presents the development of the number of volunteers in Hungary, regional distribution of volunteers and territorial rates of volunteering, as well as the types of voluntary work and NGOs. Following the brief introduction to the history of volunteering in Hungary, the research carried out on volunteering in 2018 is described, including its key elements and highlighting future goals and expectations. The main aim of the study is to highlight what forms volunteering as a social value has taken in Hungary in the past 30 years.
