The study is to analyse the existing or emerging sources of development and investment funds to which national civil society organisations in Turkey have access. Such funds may be managed by national or local government institutions, or occasionally by other institutions, such as embassies or foundations. It also incorporates donor perspectives and views, including their forecasts regarding the likely evolution of available funds, and the social and geopolitical trends by which this will be determined.
First, a comprehensive “desk review” has been carried out to understand how civil society organisations (CSOs) in Turkey go about their institutional fundraising, based on the relevant information in published reports and documents. Secondly, 14 in-depth interviews have been conducted with representatives of local and international CSOs and funding organisations.
