Iran Heritage Foundation (IHF) is a non-political UK registered charity, with the mission to promote and preserve the history, languages and cultures of Iran and the Persian-speaking world.

We sponsor academic research, publications and fellowships, as well as diverse public programmes focusing on both ancient and modern Iran. We have partnered with major museums (e.g., the British Museum, the V&A, the British Library and the Freer-Sackler Gallery) and universities  (e.g., Cambridge, Oxford, SOAS, St. Andrews and Edinburgh) to bring some of the world’s best expertise to our programmes.

Our main source of funding is donations from businesses and individuals. No financial support is received or accepted from any government or political organisation.

Please support your IHF, and help us maintain these unique and valuable programmes into the future.
