RECENT GRANTS

After Court order on September 11th, 2013 Alavi Foundation has not been allowed to approve any of the many grants submitted from individuals, universities, and cultural centers to the Foundation. We do hope that once litigation against the Foundation is settled, Foundation can once again provide grants to America.

Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Marziyeh Afkham underscored that the Alavi Charity Foundation has nothing to do with the Iranian government, and described the US court's verdict to confiscate the Alavi Foundation's properties unwise and politically tainted. The Iranian spokeswoman stressed that the recently issued verdict by a court in the US on confiscation of properties, belonging to the Alavi Charity Foundation, is based on fake documents, and thus lacks creditability and value. Afkham said that the issuance of a court verdict in accordance with anti-Iranian political propagations along with confiscation order against the properties of a charity fund that has absolutely no relation with the Iranian government raises questions on the credibility of the US judiciary system.
