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.

They aren't Alone - Thanks to you!

Dear Donors,

Thank you for your support to Istanbul Fund project.  Your generous donations make the greatest impact in the lives of many affected by these malicious attacks.

It is especially times like these we unite and lend a hand to help one another and you have done just that with your donations.  We will grant funds donated to Family and Social Policies Ministry in Turkey where the funds will help support families affected by the attack.  The process of making this grant has been slower than expected because of the “State of Emergency” that has been placed in Turkey.  We are working with the Ministry to grant these funds as soon as possible and will be posting an update.

With your support, the people of Istanbul now know that they are not alone.

Thank you again for your support.

We are truly grateful for your support!

Dear Donors,

Thank you for your continued support to this project. Your generous donations make the greatest impact in many lives of the young women you are helping send to school.

49.8% of Turkey’s population constitutes female population.  While the numbers of women who receive education have increased in recent years, the proportion of female illiteracy is higher when compared to male illiteracy.  As for high school graduates and equivalency, the number of females who are high school graduates constitutes a mere 14.4%.  

As you can see from these numbers, we have a long way to go to change the future of young women as well as our community.  This is why we need to continue supporting girls’ education. This means so much more than we can all imagine. Educated girls tend to get married at a later age and have fewer children.  According to a research, an educated woman will be more productive at work and is more likely to give back to her community. 

With your support for this project, we were able to send one more girl to school.   Her name is Fidan.  She is currently in 11th grade.  She is truly grateful for your support.  She also wants you to know that without your contribution, going to school would have not been a reality for her.

 Thank you!

With your help, we can!

Dear Donors:

Thank you for your continued support to our project for sending more girls to school.

Your generous donations make a direct impact in the lives of girls such as Rusen. 

Rusen is a 16-year-old girl from the province of Dogubeyazit, Agri. She is currently attending IMKB Van Science High School.  She is grateful for your support and below is her thank you letter in her own words (translated from Turkish to English):

“After getting a high score of 160 on the State high school entry exam, I was able to get into one of the high ranking high schools in the Van province, IMKB Van Science High School. I am currently staying at a student dorm.  I have five siblings three of whom are in school. My father is currently unemployed.

I would like to get an education to be a beneficial individual to my family and my country. Ever since I started school, I have been studying very hard to accomplish my dream. I graduated valedictorian in my senior class. I did all this hard work to accomplish one goal – that is to become a medical doctor

My family has very limited income so I can’t depend on them to continue my education.  Last semester, I was not even able to purchase my books but with your help I don’t have to worry about purchasing my school supplies anymore. I appreciate and thank you for your support.  With your help, I am now able to continue my education and make my dream of becoming a medical doctor come true.”

Rusen is amongst the girls you have supported with your donations.  We are extremely happy to see girls like Rusen go to school and we would like to give more girls the opportunity to continue their education.

With your help, we can!

 Thank you!
