ATA-NC Charlotte is the regional chapter of the parent organization American Turkish Association of North Carolina, which is headquartered in Raleigh, North Carolina. Our organization is made up of volunteer leaders of the Turkish-American community in Charlotte, many of whom have been living in the area for many years. Since its inception, we have organized countless cultural, educational and social events to bring more visibility to the Turkish-American community in Charlotte, from booths at the international festivals to Bayram celebrations and fundraising dinners to benefit underprivileged youth in Turkey. Our community is proud to provide support and collaborate with other local organizations such as the UNC Charlotte Turkish Student Association, the UNC Charlotte Turkic Society & Children, and the Bridge to Turkiye Fund.
We founded ATA-NC Charlotte as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in 2009, in response to an outpouring of friends and volunteers with the desire to strengthen our community. We will continue to serve our community by promoting Turkish culture, history and customs by hosting great events and cultural activities. Through our efforts, we hope to continue to unite our ever-growing community while sharing our rich and diverse culture with the greater communities.
