Fariborz Fred Matloob Foundation, and its sister organization Fariborz Fred Matloob Unit of B’nai B’rith (together “the Foundation”), were established in 1986 by Saeed and Afsar Matloob in memory of their son Fariborz Fred Matloob.

Since all Foundation board members are volunteers, 100% of the net proceeds of all its fundraising events goes to support organizations that take care of children with physical, mental, or financial needs and their families, regardless of race, religion, or ethnicity.
