Turkey kicks off international giving season
Congratulations to our friends and colleagues at TUSEV (Third Sector Foundation of Turkey) on their fifth TFN giving circle held earlier this month in Istanbul. Three civil society organizations presented projects focusing on multiple issues including increasing the number of guide dogs available for visually impaired Turks free of charge; workshops for socio-economically disadvantaged children on human rights, gender equality and inclusion; and encouraging the production of electricity using renewable resources in a village in the Çanakkale Province. The event raised €11,000 for the three projects from 90 donors. You can read more about the event and the Turkish experience of TFN’s model in this month’s Alliance Magazine.
Congratulations also to colleagues in Nicosia, Cyprus and Tczew, Poland on their first giving circle events this month. If you’d like to know more about our international work or you’d like to come with us to Budapest in November for the Ferencvaros Community Foundation’s third TFN event, please don’t hesitate to get in touch!
