The aim of this study is to examine the altruism levels of the physical education teachers working in Kütahya. 105 physical education teachers, 53.3% female and 46.7% male, participated in the research. The altruism scale created by Ersan and Çabuker was used in the study. T-test and ANOVA were used for independent samples in the research statistics, and Bonferroni and Tamhane were used for the difference of subgroups (a = 0.05). In the normality tests conducted according to the variables, Mann Whitney U and Kruskal Wallis H Tests were used for dependent variable results that did not show normal distribution (a = 0.05). According to the research results, it was found that there was a significant difference in the selfishness sub-dimension of female physical education teachers compared to male physical education teachers (p < 0.05). According to the results of the research, it was determined that there was a significant difference between the groups in all total scores according to the residence place of physical education teachers (p < 0.05). In the subgroup analysis, a significant difference was found between the self-sacrifice, selfishness and altruism scores of physical education teachers residing in the town and metropolitan area (p < 0.05). According to the variable of the alma mater, a significant difference was found between the graduates of college and the graduates of the Institute in favour of the graduates of the selfishness sub-dimension (p < 0.05). This revealed that college graduates displayed less selfish behaviour than the graduates of the Institute.
