Purpose and Activities

Giving primarily for promoting health, education, and disaster relief for marginal communities in the United States and around the world. Given the importance of religion to the life of many immigrant communities and refugees, the foundation has worked closely with religious communities and leaders to promote interfaith dialogue, understanding and integration. It has helped immigrant and refugee communities build houses of worship, extend and expand social services, and fight prejudice. The foundation's program interests include: social issues, health, children, women, disaster relief, Iranian-American issues, religious tolerance and interfaith dialogue, and advancing health, education and welfare of the people of UT.
