Welcome to Banou's Website!
Banou Inc. ("Banou") is a non-profit, non-political, and non-religious charitable organization that strives to promote and advance the Iranian culture both within and without the Iranian-American community in the United States, to bring together and cater to the needs of our community members near or in retirement, and to celebrate our collective heritage through relevant cultural events and activities. Although our primary audience has been Iranian-Americans residing in the Tri-State area (New York/New Jersey/Connecticut), we always welcome new members and event participants from across the United States.
Our Web Initiative
To better reach and communicate with our community and bring timely news and updates to our members, we have redesigned and revamped our website. If you are new to our organization, feel free to explore our site and familiarize yourself with Banou and its activities; the reading of our Events web pages are especially recommended.
If you are already familiar with Banou, be sure to check out our upcoming programs by visiting our Future Events web page, which has a new format and a wealth of information on our activities such as event description, time, relevant dates, maps, and directions.
