The Hayastan All-Armenian Fund was founded by Presidential Decree in 1992. It is a unique institution whose mission is to unite Armenians in Armenia and overseas to overcome the country’s difficulties and to help establish sustainable development in Armenia and Artsakh. In addition to those problems associated with the break-up of the Soviet Union, the government had to find solutions to the aftermath of the 1988 Spitak earthquake, an economic blockade and the rehabilitation of areas that had suffered from the Artsakh conflict.
The work of the Hayastan All-Armenian Fund is implemented with the active participation and support of its 21 affiliates and partner organizations in 19 countries — including the United States (Los Angeles and New York), Canada (Toronto and Montreal), France, Great Britain, Germany, Austria, Sweden, Switzerland, Australia, Brazil, Lebanon, Argentina, Greece, Cyprus, Uruguay, Romania, Iran, Netherlands and Italy.
The Fund implements a wide range of projects that are of vital importance to our homeland. Parallel to the construction of roads, schools, kindergartens, hospitals, and gas and water networks, assistance is provided to many socially vulnerable groups, including families of freedom fighters and students from low-income families. Today, thanks to donations from Armenians worldwide, hundreds of thousands of our compatriots are provided with homes, water, gas, heating, and economic opportunities.
The Fund also continues to be a major supporter of the work of Armenian artists and scientists, with particular emphasis on encouraging the young generation.
In addition to its annual flagship programs, the Fund simultaneously implements donor-specified projects as well as projects within the framework of its core development programs, in Armenia and Artsakh alike.
Throughout its 25-year history, the Hayastan All-Armenian Fund has earned the support of the entire Armenian nation for addressing the homeland’s urgent development needs and implementing modern projects of outstanding quality. As an organization that has championed Armenian statehood from the very outset, the Fund remains steadfast in its mission to direct the united efforts of Armenians across the globe to the ongoing development and strengthening of our homeland.
Your support today will help us build or renovate one more school, hospital, road, water pipeline, or gas network.

In 2005, the Board of Trustees approved the Artsakh Rebirth territorial development project, which opened a new page in the Fund’s activities. The Board unanimously decided to use funds raised in the 2005 and 2006 telethons to revitalize and develop the Nagorno Karabakh regions of Martakert and Hadrut, which had particularly suffered during the Artsakh conflict. In 2006, several projects were initiated in Martakert including support to agriculture, water supply, healthcare, and school building. A similar project is being carried out in Hadrut and Martuni regions.
The proceeds from Telethon 2007 and 2008 benefited the large scale rural development program, which helped revitalize Armenia's and Artsakh's rural villages.
The funds collected through the 2010 and 2011 fundraising drive helped provide solutions to the critical issues of clean drinking water and irrigation water in Artsakh and also continue rural development program in the border villages of Armenia and Artsakh.
The 2012 fundraising was directed to the construction of community centers in rural regions of Artsakh and Armenia and assistance to the Armenian community of Syria.
The Telethon 2013 was directed to the reconstruction of the 116 km long Vardenis-Martakert Highway, a road serving as an additional lifeline between Armenia and Artsakh. Proceeds of the Telethon 2014 are used to complete the asphalting and decorating of the entire highway. The amounts raised at the Telethon 2015 serve to construct single-family homes for families in Nagorno Karabakh who have five or more children and lack adequate housing, as well as to implement special projects adopted by the benefactors.
During the years of its activity, Hayastan Fund has gained widespread respect and recognition for successfully meeting the needs and aspirations of the time. Always a great support to Armenia, the Fund is committed to its mission of successfully and steadily developing the young country.
