About Us

Who We Are

Bridge to Türkiye Fund (BTF) was established in 2003 by Turkish American volunteers driven to make a difference, to improve life and to cultivate social change for the common good.  BTF’s commitment to these ideals stems from our basic desire to give back to our native land for the many opportunities we have gained from her.
