Turkish Philanthropy Funds

Turkish Philanthropy Funds (TPF) seeks to maximize the impact of giving, with a particular focus on Turkey. TPF's mission is to help donors realize their philanthropic goals to meet community needs in the US and in Turkey. With the plethora of NGOs, knowing where to invest your charitable dollars is a challenge. TPF finds and funds the most effective programs, and partners with them to maximize results. Our aim is to take philanthropy beyond the "feel good" into significant and measurable impact. TPF does this by strengthening individual giving and by providing information, solutions and community.

Put an end to child brides in Turkey
 
In Turkey, 28% of women are considered a child bride. This number increases in the Southeastern region to 40-45%. A child bride is defined by having forcibly pushed into marriage before the age of 17. The problems are so complex, but the answers are so simple. Turkish Philanthropy Funds works with multiple NGOs on the ground in Turkey that combat child brides through education and providing financial stability. project reportread updates from the field

Give children with Autism in Turkey an education
 
Tohum Autism Foundation, a Turkish based organization, opened a school for children with Autism in 2006. There was an enormous need for such a school where currently 126 students are enrolled. Turkey is among the countries with the biggest need in this sense. The percentage of special needs students is about 1% in Turkey whereas it is 3-6% in Europe. This means that great majority of special needs children, many with autism, cannot receive special education services in Turkey. project reportread updates from the field
