Funding Sources Database

As STGM, we regularly search for funding opportunities for civil society to contribute to the sustainability of CSOs in Turkey and support their resource development, and we help access funding sources by reporting open calls for grants from around the world and Turkey.

What is Funding Resources Database Composed of?

While compiling information for the fund sources database, several funding institutions and organizations are reviewed for CSOs in both national and international channels. Funding Sources Database includes institutions and organizations that geographically include Turkey in their studies, whose information was accessed within the scope of the research. These include foundations, independent organizations, embassies, public institutions, international organizations, and the private sector. 

In the Funding Sources Database, you can find brief information about each funding institution and organization, priority fields of works, important information about the application process, requested application documents and websites and contact addresses containing more detailed information; You can search by institution or by field of work.

Funding Resources and Source Development Platforms

Funds and fundraising platforms may be subject to regular modifications depending on the amendments made by funding institutions and organizations, or those which provide platforms for source development. Likewise, amendments may take place either with regard to the structure of funds or platforms in accordance with own strategical priorities of institutions and organizations (such as priority areas, fund amount, and application criteria), or may be associated with the full closure of the fund programme and the platform and/or the replacement with new programmes which are entirely different in terms of topics and contents. 

Taking this into account, as STGM, we update the Fund Resources Database at certain periods. However, these changes may occur between these update periods. For this reason, please be informed that the most up-to-date information can be accessed from the web pages of the fund institutions and organizations/platforms in the database.
