"To give away money is an easy matter and in any man's power. But to decide to whom to give it and how large and when, and for what purpose and how, is neither in every man's power nor an easy matter."


The 2010 Mehrgan Grant Cycle, PARSA Community Foundation's biggest and final grant cycle, is concluded and the results have been published through a series of announcements:

We would like to thank all the applicants for their amazing proposals and great work, and for taking the time to send us detailed applications. We would also like to thank the experts and community leaders who served on our Grant Advisory Board and helped us with revieweing and ranking the grant applications for this. Last but not least, we would also like to thank all the donors and volunteers who helped PARSA CF along the way. Please make sure that you read the letter from our chairmain: So Proud.
