University of Oxford
A significant endowment was granted to the University of Oxford for the establishment of the Khalili Research Centre for the Art and Material Culture of the Middle East. It was opened by the Chancellor of Oxford University, Lord Patten, in July 2005. The Khalili Foundation has continued its support for the Centre, notably with another substantial donation in 2011. A further endowment was granted to the University of Oxford for a Research Fellowship in Islamic Art.
