Golestan is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization in Berkeley, California with a two-fold mission.  Locally, Golestan is an idyllic and progressive Pesian language immersion school housed in a beautiful historic building in Berkeley.  Globally, Golestan helps communities of all backgrounds build their own language immersion schools.  

Golestan was the first, and continues to be the largest, program of its kind in the country.  The dynamic and progressive program draws from a diverse set of educational philosophies and utilizes a very rich and developed curriculum.  Since its incorporation in 2008, Golestan has worked with over three  dozen groups of individuals and groups wanting to start similar schools in their own languages (including English!). 

It is with great joy that we can say we are finally in contract for the purchase of our building! By this year's summer solstice, if all goes as planned, we will no longer risk losing our home... we will own it.  BUT WE NEED YOUR HELP!

So far, nearly 200 generous donors have participated in this campaign to save our home. You can help secure the future of our organization so that generations of children will enjoy this beautiful space that has become an icon for this community and a model for others.

Please consider donating $10- $50- $100 today and your gift will be matched, dollar for dollar, by Ms. Bita Daryabari's incredibly generous match.  This means that every dollar you donate will be worth twice as much!  No gift is too small.

With your help, we will raise the remaining $220,000 needed to close ESCROW* by the June 15th deadline***  If you are in a position to do so, we ask that you help us in this small but ever-so-important way.  

PLEASE DONATE TODAY!
