Support the Rich Cultural Heritage of Iran

The Ehsan Yarshater Center for Iranian Studies has an ongoing fund raising program supporting advanced research and publication on the rich cultural heritage of Iran, including the Encyclopaedia Iranica and the History of Persian Literature.  The continuation of these monumental projects requires the support of all who value the preservation and dissemination of Iranian culture. Your donation to us is a bequest to posterity, ensuring that Iran’s important contributions to history and civilization are recorded and safeguarded for future generations. The Center appreciates any and all gifts; every dollar helps, and we are truly grateful for your interest in and support of our work.
