Until today, the Foundation has allocated more than 26 million TL for 164 projects implemented in 76 out of 81 provinces in Turkey and achieved nationwide impact.

In the 13th year of the Grant Programs, Sabancı Foundation initiated a strategic review process with the participation of experts from different sectors in order to evaluate the work of the foundation and adapt to the changing needs in Turkey. As a result of the study, the Foundation decided to develop its Grant Programs in order to bring permanent solutions to social problems and create a more sustainable impact. In the new system, the projects of civil society organizations on education will be supported within the “Open Call Grant Program”; while new strategic partnerships and projects will be developed on some thematic areas.
