The Alavi Foundation is a non-profit organization formed under New York law in 1973. The Foundation receives most of the money it gives to charitable programs from the rental income of an office building in Manhattan. The Foundation's contributions are limited to not-for-profit public charities that are tax exempt under IRS law. The Alavi Foundation files form 990-PF annually with the IRS and the Charities Bureau Office of the New York Attorney General. Copies of our condensed 990-PF can be found by visiting our "Financials" section. A complete report is available through guidestar.org or by contacting us.
