Nurol Education, Culture And Sports Foundation

The NUROL EDUCATION, CULTURE and SPORTS FOUNDATION was established by the ÇARMIKLI FAMILY in 1996, with the goal of contributing to efforts aimed at promoting and improving our national culture while protecting its connection with the past, as well as contributing to endeavors aimed at enabling our country to reach the level of contemporary civilizations, and at securing its well-deserved place at an international level.

The three ÇARMIKLI brothers, Nurettin, Erol and Mehmet Oğuz, carry out their activities in this regard with the returns from the assets held by the NUROL FOUNDATION portfolio, which is structured in Ankara and comprises real estate assets and cash donations given by the brothers as real capital, and with the financial support provided annually by the companies in the Nurol Group. NUROL continues its tradition of supporting contemporary education, sports, culture and the arts in order to create a better future, engaging also in activities aimed at increasing quality of life in society, as a natural part of the corporate culture of more than a half century, and the values it possesses.

As for the management of the FOUNDATION, decisions are taken by the members of the Board of Trustees in line with the objectives mentioned in the establishment agreement, subject to the approval of the Board of Directors, which consists of five members.

As part of its assumed duties in regards to social responsibility, the NUROL FOUNDATION attaches great importance to providing sustainable benefits through its contributions in support of the education and cultural development of young people. In this regard, the foundation provides scholarships at various educational levels to successful students who have limited financial means, and their educational status is closely monitored.

With the continuous support of the NUROL FOUNDATION, Emre Aracı, the Ottoman history researcher, author and musicologist, continues to represent our country through his albums and concerts all over the world.

The NUROL ART GALLERY, which brings together lovers of art from Ankara with contemporary art and artists, has been in service since 1992 as a place where the works of distinctive artists are exhibited, and also where young talents can be discovered and given a chance to introduce themselves. The works exhibited in Ankara are later presented to lovers of art in our Gallery in Bodrum OASİS. The GALLERY in Ankara, has become a distinctive and preferred location for culture and the arts in the Capital, hosting artistic workshops, interviews, signing events and panels, in addition to the many exhibitions it hosts.

As part of its efforts in support of education, the NUROL FOUNDATION has constructed various cultural facilities, including school buildings, libraries, sports halls, training and congress centers, cinemas and theater buildings, providing also furnishings and landscapes, all over the country, and donated these to the Ministry of National Education. In this way, the FOUNDATION continues to render services to the Turkish Nation.

Having provided financial support for the publication of books and documentary films aimed at raising social awareness of our cultural heritage, and at protecting, promoting and improving national values, the NUROL FOUNDATION has taken an active role in the dissemination of these publications and films to large numbers of people. The FOUNDATION is proud to mediate the sharing of its activities in different circles through its artistic and cultural projects.
