Make a Gift

Boğaziçi University’s fundraising arm, the Boğaziçi University Foundation (BÜVAK), has partnered with Turkish Philanthropy Funds (TPF) to enable its donors to make tax-deductible donations to Boğaziçi University from the United States. TPF is a tax-exempt organization as described in Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and all gifts made to Boğaziçi University from the United States are tax-deductible to the full extent provided by law (Tax ID: 20-8392006).

Thanks to its generous friends and alumni in North America, in 2014, 2015 and 2016, BÜVAK was able to raise close to $500,000 in donations through TPF. A partnership based on trust and shared aims, U.S. donors should rest assured that gifts made through TPF to Boğaziçi University reach their destination.

Boğaziçi University currently has 1 project under TPF’s auspices: the Endowment Fund.
