Remained faithful to our founders’ vision, social responsibility is one of our core values. We do not work only for market share, but also to win people’s hearts. Our corporate citizenship approach has become one of the core values of Sabancı culture. The continuity of this approach is only possible with the high sensitivity and sense of responsibility of our employees.

Since its establishment, Sabancı Foundation has touched a million lives. We have built more than 120 institutions, provided over 42.500 scholarship to support the education of young people, given over 1000 awards, and provided more than 11 million TL support for 119 projects within the scope of our grant programs. With our stakeholders both in Turkey and in global platforms like United Nations and European Foundation Center, we aim to support rights of people with disabilities, women, and youth. Moreover our group companies have conducted countless projects to answer the society’ needs.

We believe our country deserves the best; we ceaselessly work with this in mind. We know, the strong bond between Sabancı and our society stems from the trust for our sincerity. This creates a responsibility for us. We are aware of our responsibility and we will continue to strive to create lasting effects and be worthy of this trust. We heartily thank our society.”
