The Aziz and Gwen Sancar Foundation (AGSF) is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization formed in 2007 by Drs. Aziz and Gwen Sancar primarily for educational and charitable purposes to increase the understanding and friendship of Türkiye and its people and promote closer ties between the United States and Türkiye.
The mission of the Foundation is to promote understanding of Türkiye and Turkic people in the United States. To this end, the Foundation has established the Sancar Turkish Cultural and Community Center (STCCC) in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. STCCC serves as a venue for lectures, films, exhibits, forums, panels or similar programs, and social gatherings organized by the Foundation, and as a community resource for information about the civilization, language and culture of Türkiye and the Turkic people.
