When it comes to legacies, the one left by Dr. Ahmad Rezvan resonates as one of the most enduring and heartwarming of all.

Salinas, CA, November 29, 2016 - Growing up in Iran, young Ahmad faced tremendous obstacles — abject poverty and the devastating loss of his father when he was just 14 years old. Despite this, and while providing for his grief-stricken family, Ahmad stunned his small town by secretly putting himself through school, winning admission to the most prestigious university in Iran, and eventually earning a medical degree. Ahmad needed equal parts excellence and determination to transform his life — and the lives of his family.

To honor the legacy of his late father, Dr. Ehsan Rezvan founded the Rezvan Foundation for Excellence, a nonprofit that supports students who share the same incredible combination of strengths that eventually brought the senior Dr. Rezvan to America with his family.

The mission of the Rezvan Foundation is to support the educational pursuits of exceptionally talented young students who have shown a determination to succeed, despite the crippling loss of one or more parent, or removal from their parents’ home.

It is the hope of the foundation that Rezvan scholars will continue to “pay it forward” and keep alive the generous spirit of Dr. Ahmad Rezvan and his family for generations to come.

To celebrate this lasting legacy, and to help fund future scholarships, the Rezvan Foundation for Excellence is holding its first-ever Fundraising Gala on Feb. 4, 2017, at the Sofitel Hotel in Redwood City.

Tickets to the gala are $250, and are tax-deductible (Tax ID No.: 81-0810674). Payment can be made by check (payable to The Rezvan Foundation) or credit card (Visa, MC, Discover or AmEx). Please mail or fax the completed form with check or complete credit card information to: The Rezvan Foundation for Excellence 7888 Wren Ave., #B-120, Gilroy, CA 95020. Phone: (818) 298-8316. Fax: (408) 842-7057. Email: rezvanfoundation@gmail.com. Website: www.rezvanfoundation.com.
