A Special Message of Thanks
Over the last seven years, ISF has grown from modest beginnings into a well-rounded foundation, surpassing even our own expectations in the process.
We have republished Shah’s work in hundreds of new editions on both sides of the Atlantic, launched dozens of foreign translations in both East and West, have established a major collaboration with UNESCO, and have pushed forward a wide range of charitable and educational initiatives.
None of these accomplishments would have been possible without the leadership and vision of Clare Maxwell-Hudson, and Gill Whitworth, two of our founding trustees. Clare and Gill are now retiring having completed the maximum length of trusteeship permitted within ISF's statute.
The entire team at ISF would like to pay tribute to their incredible energy and commitment, and to thank them with resounding applause for all they’ve done.
