Turkish Philanthropy Funds is proud to announce the creation of a memorial fund by Ender, Murat and Erman Ağırnaslı in the memory of their late mother Sabahat Buruloğlu.
Sabahat Buruloğlu graduated from İstanbul University Law School and passed the bar exam in 1952 to become one of the first female lawyers in early modern Turkey. She later served as a juvenile court judge.
The Ağırnaslı family created the memorial fund as a way to honor Sabahat Hanim’s commitment to education. She believed that all girls deserved a chance to excel in their lives through education, and this fund will carry on her legacy. It will be used to establish an endowed scholarship fund at Toplum Gonulluleri Vakfi in her name to support a female student at her alma mater, İstanbul University Law School.
