The Iranian-American Heritage Foundation of Southern California is a non-religious, non-political, and not-for-profit foundation established in 2008 to celebrate the art and culture of Iranian Americans in the widest extent. The IAHFSC supports academic programs in Southern California by funding university programs, publication, and conferences.
The foundation also supports cultural programs such as celebrating Noruz and Mehregan, Iranian plays, dances, films and poetry reading in Southern California. The IAHFSC in cooperation with the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the University of California, Irvine plans major exhibits about Iran and its culture.
The United States has benefited from the introduction and integration of many great cultures into its multi-cultural society for almost all of its history. In the recent decades, the modern heirs of an ancient culture, that of Iran, have settled in the US and tried to contribute to its society and culture. With its remarkable ability to integrate and enrich other cultures, the Iranian civilization has shown itself to be one of the exceptional cultural trends of world history.
In the United States, particularly in the welcoming arms of Southern California, the largest concentration of Iranians outside of Iran have formed a new home and new fertile ground to promote and share their cultural heritage. With this in mind, IAHFSC has been formed to help celebrate this rich heritage through promoting research and further studies into its history and background.
How is IAHFSC managed?
The policies of the Foundation are determined by its Board of Directors, and executed by its officers and executives (Executive Director, Treasurer and Secretary). The Academic Committee selects eligible academic and research projects and sets out the Foundation's conditions for providing financial support to them >>> Visit www.iahfsc.com
