About ISF Gala

The Annual ISF Gala brings the entire ISF community together to celebrate the hard work, passion and commitment of our students and their families. This gathering is meant to honor the growing community of promising, engaged and impactful young individuals, and to strengthen their bond with the broader Iranian-American community. Our galas encourage us to re-dedicate ourselves to the ISF mission of building a vibrant, gifted community of young students who are eager to pursue their educational dreams and enrich and contribute to the global Iranian community.

The Annual ISF Gala: 

    • Celebrates the hard work of our young stars—Iranian-Americans students who have been chosen for their outstanding potential, passion and commitment to building a better world and returning to the Iranian-American community the fruit of their talents and gifts. 

 

    • Connects our students to the broader Iranian-American community in academia, business, the arts, media, science, medicine and philanthropy…creating a rich and lasting dialogue between Iranian-Americans of different generations, backgrounds and pursuits.

 

    • Highlights the values the program is founded upon—stewardship, social and cultural responsibility, the vital importance of community and caring for others, the pairing of academic achievement with contribution to society, and the unique and lasting value of mentorship—and builds a strong and committed community around these values.

 

    • Inspires the entire ISF community—our recipients and their families, our team, our donors and our supporters from among some of the most successful and impactful segments of society—by sharing the stories of ISF recipients. Through these stories we communicate to our audience what makes ISF a unique and powerful scholarship, and the significant and lasting impact derived from nurturing young individuals who show both promise and a desire to give back to the community.

 

  • Provides the best opportunity for our donors and supporters to see the impact of the work we do firsthand, and to meet and come to know the remarkable individuals who are ISF recipients, creating bonds that will last a lifetime.

At the Gala, ISF also finds new supporters who want to engage in meaningful and impactful work and contribute to the global Iranian community. They learn about ISF’s values and the extraordinary possibilities of bringing positive change through ISF’s support and mentorship of promising and worthy students.

The ISF Gala is also a place where our recipients can meet other ISF students and graduates, create bonds with one other, and build a supportive network of individuals who share similar values and commitment to the community.

ISF’s Annual Gala has been growing every year, both in terms of the number of people who participate and in the size of support they extend to ISF. It has become one of the Bay Area’s must-attend events as it is filled with singular individuals who share an inspiring vision for the future—and the will and capabilities to make it happen.

For more than a decade, both emerging and well-known artists have donated their work to our auction in order to support the vital mission we pursue. This Annual Gala Auction showcases the engagement of some of the leading lights in our community—and their commitment to ISF’s cause.

For information on supporting ISF’s work by contributing pieces of art to our Annual Gala Auction, please contact info@theisf.org

We invite and encourage you to join in this important and joyous occasion, where all can meet the ISF students and learn about their exciting work, build and deepen new relationships, and affirm and celebrate membership in the truly exceptional Iranian-American community.
