Washington, D.C. – Today, the Armenian Assembly of America announced that it surpassed its $2 million Humanitarian Campaign fundraising goal to support the Armenia Fund, an aid effort that directly benefits the people of Artsakh and Armenia.
“The Armenian Assembly expresses its heartfelt appreciation to all those who contributed to this important humanitarian effort,” said Assembly Executive Director Bryan Ardouny.
The campaign kicked off with the generous offer by an anonymous Assembly member to match all contributions up to $1 million. After a period of just 17 days, the Assembly raised $1,095,938.12, which combined with the $1 million match brings the total to $2,095,938.12.
“The groundswell of community support in such a short time has been truly inspiring. Together, we continue to stand in solidarity with the people of Artsakh and Armenia, and these funds will provide them much needed aid in these difficult times. Together we are Artsakh strong,” Ardouny continued.
“Although this matching opportunity is completed, the Assembly strongly encourages everyone to donate directly to the Armenian Fund,” Ardouny added.
In addition to the anonymous $1 million matching fund contributor, the Assembly would like to express its gratitude to:
Headquartered in Washington, DC, the Armenian Assembly of America is the largest, non-partisan Armenian-American advocacy organization in the United States. Since 1972, the Assembly continues to promote public awareness of Armenian issues, encourage greater Armenian-American participation in the American democratic process, and assist in humanitarian and development programs in Armenia and Nagorno Karabakh, while strengthening the U.S.-Armenia and U.S.-Nagorno Karabakh relationships.
