Pasargad Heritage Foundation(PHF)



Considering that the scientific experiences and studies confirm that the historical and cultural achievements of a nation are the main source of their self-confidence and spiritual pride,

Considering that such treasures do not only belong to a particular nation and a land but are also recognized as undeniable parts of human civilization,

Considering that the Iranian historical treasures are in very drastic conditions due to the malicious actions of relevant authorizes in Iran and we are witnessing, on a daily basis, how these authorities are ignoring the threats against them and at the same time, are intentionally destroying them,

Considering that we are certainly able to expose the atrocities that are taking place against the history and culture of Iranians to the attention of the culture-appreciating and caring people of the world,

Considering that spreading the documented news of these hidden destructive agenda is within our capabilities,

Considering the fact that we can organize unbiased investigations that could open a fresh window to the history and culture of Iran,

Considering our capability to act as a whistle-blower that informs the rest of the world about this unfortunate and ongoing saga,

A new cultural foundation has legally been created and registered under the name, Pasargad Heritage Foundation (PHF). This foundation has been created as homage to Cyrus the Great, the author of the first human rights declaration in the history of mankind.

PHF is a not-for-profit, non-political and non-religious organization managed and run by unpaid volunteers from all over the world. They are only motivated by their love of the Iranian cultural treasures and their belief in the necessity of their preservation.

As members of FHP’s Board of Trustees, we would like to announce the commencement of this international organization’s activities, with a solemn promise to utilize all of our capabilities to guard and preserve the cultural and historical treasures of Iranian people that undoubtedly are considered as parts of mankind’s heritage.

The first general meeting of the Board to select the officers of the Foundation will take place in September 2007 and its various committees and departments will be able to welcome their new members and supporters from then on.

If you too believe in the importance of Iranian heritage and their role in enhancement of cultural developments and the civilized inter-connection of human societies, please do not hesitate to contact us and become a colleague of ours in this honorable endeavor. The doors of this Foundation are and will be always wide open to welcome you.
