Bonyads (Persian: بنیاد‎ "Foundation") are charitable trusts in Iran that play a major role in Iran's non-petroleum economy, controlling an estimated 20% of Iran's GDP, and channeling revenues to groups supporting the Islamic Republic. Exempt from taxes, they have been called "bloated", and "a major weakness of Iran's economy". They have also been criticized for reaping "huge subsidies from government", while siphoning off production to the lucrative black market and providing limited and inadequate charity to the poor.

  • Les Bonyads (en persan : بنیاد) sont des fonds caritatifs iraniens qui contrôlent de 11 % à 40 % selon les sources du PNB de l'Iran. Mis en place juste après la révolution iranienne, les Bonyads ont été utilisés pour redistribuer les revenus du pétrole aux pauvres et aux familles des martyrs. Aujourd'hui, les Bonyads sont des consortiums de compagnies qui sont exemptées de taxes et qui rendent compte directement au guide suprême. Les Bonyads ont des effectifs pléthoriques et ne font généralement pas de bénéfices.
