TUSEV recently published the Individual Giving and Philanthropy in Turkey report which presents comprehensive and up to date data on perception on philanthropy, trends and motivations in individual giving in Turkey as well as providing a comparison on the change in the understanding of philanthropy and giving practices in the last decade.

Despite the importance of donations for the financial sustainability of CSOs, results of the “Individual Giving and Philanthropy in Turkey” (Report) conducted in 2015 in 68 of Turkey’s 81 provinces with the participation of 2,495 respondents, show that giving through CSOs in Turkey is low. Also, compared to an earlier study conducted in 2004 and published by TUSEV in 2006, “Philanthropy in Turkey: Citizens, Foundations, and Pursuit of Social Justice” there has been a marked decrease in donations made to CSOs (from 18.4% in 2004 to 12.9% in 2015) in the past decade. The publication, executive summary and infographic set are also available here.
