About the Iran Project

History and Our Funders

The Iran Project was launched in 2002 by the United Nations Association of the USA and the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, and transitioned to an independent, nonprofit initiative under the auspices of the Foundation for a Civil Society in 2009.  In 2016, The Iran Project helped form the National Coalition to Prevent an Iranian Nuclear Weapon to broaden engagement of our work.

For two decades, the Iran Project has served as a forum for policy analyses and dialogue with the aim of reducing misunderstandings between Iran and the U.S. and advancing diplomatic solutions over military escalation.

The Project’s current funders include Ploughshares Fund, The Prospect Hill Foundation, the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, as well as individual donors.
