Giving to the Museum
Charitable contributions to the Armenian Museum of America, the only independent Museum outside Armenia, are vital to its continued success in preserving the Armenian heritage. Generous donations support the exhibits and programs, as well as operational expenses.
There are many ways to give. Becoming a museum member is an important step to ensure the vitality of the institution. We also hope that you would support The Armenian Museum’s annual fundraising campaigns: the Christmas Fundraiser and the Spring Sports Raffle. Memorial gifts and naming opportunities are also available. For further information please the Assistant Director’s office at 617 926 2562 x 8

Genocide Endowment Fund
The Armenian Genocide is the Armenian Museum’s permanent exhibition created as a reminder to the world of more than 1.5 million Armenians whose suffering and death must never be forgotten. The exhibition provides an opportunity to honor the memory of a deceased loved one through a contribution of $1,000 to the Genocide Endowment Fund. The loved one need not be a victim of the Genocide. Income from the Genocide Endowment Fund will be used solely to support the upkeep and maintenance of this exhibition and for creating traveling exhibits on the Armenian Genocide. Only the name of the deceased will appear on the plaque mounted in the exhibition area.
There are many ways to make a contribution to the Armenian Museum, from gifts of cash and securities to life income gifts and bequests. These gifts provide tax benefits and include:
Charitable Gift Annuities
Gifts of Marketable Securities
Life Insurance Policies
Leadership Circle (acknowledged with a commemorative plaque in the Museum lobby)
