Mission & Activities

Donating to NGOs is still very uncommon in Turkey. This platform aims to bring together Turkish NGOs and donors and help them have a sustainable relationship.  We aim to do this by encouraging the NGOs develop their performance criteria, try to meet them and measure their impact. Simultaneously we aim to direct donors towards smart giving (researching, comparing NGOs).  Through Açık Açık we also want to increase the number of transparent and accountable NGOs who measure their impact.

We have met with opinion leaders, and all the possible stakeholders (companies who want to work with NGOs, auditors, members of the media....) and had one-to-one discussions on Açık Açık. We also conducted a focus group study where we invited 15 other stakeholders. We have come up with the draft for our platform after analyzing the data we gathered.
