Why TPF?

Positive and meaningful change has always come at the hands of the individual, not a big foundation or agency. It is each of us that has the ability to transform lives, through our everyday interactions. TPF provides the platform to make that possible.

TPF is about empowering everyone to be a philanthropist.

Donors are at the heart of our model. That means that with a fund at TPF, you can manage your contributions to your favorite NGOs in Turkey; to your local causes in the U.S.; and, to your alma mater. Through our platform, TPF works with individuals interested in making donations and making their contributions as effective as possible. Your donation is an investment – in your community, your hometown and your cause. We provide guidance and advice about giving options and discuss various opportunities with you.

At TPF, your money is not just a transaction. It is part of a movement in which you the donor is involved in transforming lives.
