Turkey Giving Circles on the rise 


Alliance magazine


The fifth giving circle organized by the Third Sector Foundation of Turkey (TUSEV) in October saw 90 donors pledge €11,000.

Three CSOs presented their projects to win the funding, including a plan to increase the number of free guide dogs available to visually impaired individuals, a series of workshops with disadvantaged children on human rights, gender equality and inclusion, and encouraging the production of electricity using renewable resources.  

Giving circles are a relatively new concept in Turkey, and it remains to be seen if donors and CSOs can build a long-term relationship – donations tend to remain as one-off actions, and a stronger network of donors is needed.
