Darüşşafaka Donation Campaign
There are a lot of orphans and students in Turkey who cannot access education due to the limited financial means of their families. Darüşşafaka Education Institutions have tried to lessen this problem, which widens the gap between the haves and have-nots in society, for the past 146 years.
Darüşşafaka provides students who do not have the financial means to access education with full scholarships, including boarding, from the first year of primary school to the last year of high school. The only source of income for Darüşşafaka, which makes great efforts to raise the "role model citizens of tomorrow," is the donations it receives.
In 2009, Yapı Kredi launched a donation campaign covering its entire network to support Darüşşafaka. Accordingly, a Yapı Kredi employee who wants to support Darüşşafaka Education Institutions can determine a certain donation amount, which is then deducted from his or her monthly salary and transferred to the account of Darüşşafaka.
These funds are used to allow more children who are fatherless to benefit from a modern education.
