Fundraising for TACAM Building Renovation!

“Culture is the cornerstone of the Turkish Republic.” -Mustafa Kemal Ataturk

As the board of TACAM, we have taken the initiative to renovate our TACAM Home in honor of our founder, Mustafa Kemal Ataturk’s vision. We aimed and achieved the completion of the renovation before the 100th Anniversary of our Republic, and ensured that our Cultural Center is in the best possible condition to share our culture with our members and visitors.

We need your assistance in funding some of the associated costs. We aim to raise about $20,000 with donations, and we kindly request that you consider donating and sharing this message with your networks, including your companies or organizations.

Every dollar counts, and your contribution will help cover the cost of the renovation, as well as maintain our building in best shape for future events.
