Dear Friends:

We would like to appeal to the generosity of our donors and to our members one more time for the last fund-raising drive of this year.

Between now and December 31, we are asking for continued support from our members and friends to raise funds that we need to take on the responsibilities of the year ahead.

It is our mission to create cohesion and cooperation between the large number of social/cultural Turkish American organizations around the U.S. and to be their respected voice in the nation’s capital. The Assembly’s main goal is to link Turkish-American communities, large or small, and pursue their interests in Washington and beyond. The main objectives of ATAA are two-fold. One is to create an informed Turkish American community that can help foster U.S. – Turkey relations and take an active part in promoting a balanced and truthful picture of Turkey in the U.S.

We hope that you will be able to take part in one or more of the many exciting events that we are planning for this and the next year.

In order to meet our mission and provide services for our community, we rely on the generosity of individuals like you. Without your assistance, we would not be able to serve our community. As an organization staffed entirely by volunteers, ATAA will continue to work hard, reflect our community’s shared values for democracy, Republic and freedom of speech, and hopes to expand the scope and number of activities for community building.

We ask that you make a commitment to support our annual appeal by making a donation. Your generosity will make a difference in our community.

As always, we will be happy to hear your feedback. Please do not hesitate to contact us at (202) 483-9090, and/or at assembly@ataa.org.

We thank you for your generous support and commitment, and wish you a happy, healthy and prosperous Holiday Season.

With much gratitude,

Gokhan Ozalp. ATAA President
Dr. Bulent Basol. ATAA BOT Chairman
Dr. Ulku Ulgur, ATAA Founder and First President
