2.13. Corporate Social Responsibility Activities

In addition to performing the duties and responsibilities entrusted to it by the CBRT Law, the CBRT also engages in corporate social responsibility activities and contributes to academic studies by providing financial support. In the scope of the Financial Support Program for Academic Studies, which has been in place since 2006, the Bank continued to provide support for conferences on economics and finance as well as for other academic and policy-making studies in these fields both at national and international levels. Among the 26 academic programs that applied for support, the Bank provided financial support for 17 in 2016.

The Central Bank Derince Anatolian High School in İzmit was founded by the contributions of the CBRT and the Bank of Greece in the aftermath of the 17 August 1999 earthquake in Turkey. The school, which started education in 2001‑2002, had its 15th graduation ceremony in May 2016, where the highest ranking three graduates were awarded with plaquets, money awards and various presents. By 2016, the total number of graduates of the high school that has received a scholarship from the Bank for university education reached 88. Moreover, the CBRT donated a photocopier, sports equipment and books to the school.

Medical and electronic devices, such as PCs, laptops and projectors that were out of use at the CBRT were donated to public schools and hospitals which were in need of such items.
