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. According to the findings of the Report, the sum of all donations made in one year is approximately USD 77.5 per capita, or 0.8% of Turkey’s GDP in 2014. However, in the case of giving through CSOs, this rate drops to 0.06%. The fact that individuals prefer direct giving and do not make their donations through a CSO is a significant finding.
