Established in 2005 in Los Angeles, California, "Ararat Foundation" Inc. is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt, non governmental, independent organization. Since it's creation, we have embarked in numerous public service programs in upholding Armenian heritage through educational, cultural and humanitarian projects.
Throughout the years, we have cooperated with other Armenian organizations in presenting educational programs to the general public. In 2015, the organization has toured 25 cities in California in upholding Bicentennial Armenian Genocide educational and cultural events and also in the year 2015 alone, we have provided over $75,000 worth of humanitarian aid in terms of brand new essential goods to Armenia and Artsakh.
Currently, we are actively involved in the planning stages and reconstruction of New Shahumyan's Children's and Youth Cultural Center in Karvajar, Artsakh and the planning and building of a community park in memory of Khandut Avetyan, a devoted community and civic servant in Karvajar.
Village by village, Ararat Foundation is ensuring a brighter future for the inhabitants of Armenia.
