Dear friends and contributors,
First we need to thank you for your generous contribution to this fund that is so dear to all of us. So far, we have collected 17 thousand dollars. Second, we would like to update you on the process of establishing this fund.
We are delighted to let you know that the legal part of it is completed thanks to our dear friend and attorney, Mr. Afshin Habibi, who happened to be previously a student of one of IACS two Persian schools; the school in Columbia, Maryland. He accepted to do it free of charge for us which he considered it his gift to the Fund and a payback to his Iranian community.
We have discussed the distribution of this fund with the two principals of the schools; Mrs. Pashai of Columbia and Mrs. Karimi of Towson. They promised to think more about it and get back with us on the criteria of the students who will be eligible to receive this award or scholarship. We are still waiting for their responses.
We still accept donation for this fund, and, promise to update you as soon as we make a major milestone.
