Amour Fund: Amour means ‘Resilient’ in Armenian and ‘Love’ in French. It’s not a coincident that CDG kids are Amour. Our goal is for children with CDG to be ‘Amour’ so that they can live to their fullest potential, walk, talk, smile and laugh like all children. The ultimate vision of the Amour Fund is to find a cure for Congenital Disorders of Glycosylation (CDG) by supporting CDG research. Amour fund honors disadvantaged children, raises awareness about rare diseases, advocates for screening, and provides assistance to those in need.
Armenian Educational Relief Fund – AERF is dedicated in creating the right conditions to provide the best education for every child in Armenia. AERF provides essential supplies to kindergartens in Armenia, by traveling and delivering the supplies by first-hand. We ensure that 100% of the donations reach the children who need them the most by traveling and delivering the supplies ourselves: the same men who raise the funds in America are the ones putting them to use in Armenia. AERF was established in 2006 with the goal of traveling to Armavir, Armenia to donate school supplies to kindergarten #7. The success of this project motivated us to go to Armenia every year and support other kindergartens. Since 2006, AERF has raised over $40,000 to supply 8 kindergartens throughout Armenia to support over 700 children per year.
Never Again Campaign Fund – The mission of the Never Again Campaign is to prevent crimes against humanity, particularly, a genocide. Prevention of such crimes will be accomplished through greater awareness of the Armenian Genocide and other unpunished crimes against humanity. By supporting education, remembrance, and recognition of the Armenian Genocide; we can prevent other people from suffering the same fate as the Armenian people. The struggle for the recognition of the Armenian Genocide is a struggle for all of mankind, a struggle to never again have genocide and crimes against humanity. The Never Again Campaign was established in 2006 to help bring awareness of the Armenian Genocide by organizing and sponsoring educational events on university campuses and the local community. The campaign has raised over $50,000 since its creation.
