Support Foundation for Civil Society

Support Foundation for Civil Society (Sivil Toplum icin Destek Vakfi) has been working to support civil society in Turkey since 2016. We provide core and projects grants via funds (grant programmes) to small, grassroot organisations working with a rights based approach. Since 2019, we have been providing other forms of support to our grantees in the form of mentorship, trainings and other learning opportunities. Please see our “Capacity Development Guide for Grantmaking Organizations” e-publication for our approach. To access supplemental material, you need to click the links in the guide.

In 2020, nearly all of our grants went to organisations with a yearly budget of <1,5 million TL (< 215.000 USD). Our Foundation operate through running funds that enabled individual, institutional and corporate donors to pool their contributions.
