"The Isvara Foundation is a progressive trust that awards grants to civil society organisations working to halt the unsustainable and socially destructive neo-liberal policies that characterize the currently dominant process of corporate-led globalisation. " [1]

"The Foundation was established by Ayman Jallad in 2007 and the foundation's grantmaking since then is fully financed from a personal donation made by Mr. Jallad. The Foundation is administrated by a Foundation Board at UBS in Zürich, Switzerland.

"Ayman Jallad is Partner & Chairman at M. Ezzat Jallad & Fils, a Beirut-based trading company in agricultural, industrial and construction equipment (also known as the Jallad Group). The Isvara Foundation is fully independent from the Jallad Group." [2]

Their website is maintained by the World Development Movement.
