AGBU Donors Worldwide Raise Over $1 Million for Emergency Relief Fund Supporting Syrian Armenians
Humanitarian Needs Remain High as Conflict Continues
AGBU has officially broken its $1 million fundraising mark to benefit the ongoing Humanitarian Emergency Relief Fund in Support of Syrian Armenians, which was made possible by the generosity of donors worldwide. Every penny is now at work to meet the urgent humanitarian needs of countless Syrian Armenians on the ground. Yet, as the devastating conflict unfolds with no end in sight, thousands of vulnerable families continue to look to the global Armenian community for support.
AGBU is extending these lifelines to Syrian Armenians with the support of its donors, members, Chapters and Young Professionals (YP) Groups around the globe. Responding immediately and generously to AGBU’s appeal, many individuals have repeatedly donated to the Syria Emergency Relief Fund, as others organize their own grassroots fundraising campaigns. Events hosted by YP Athens, YP Boston, YP Greater New York, YP Northern California and YP Toronto have brought in thousands of dollars, while the AGBU Toronto Chapter, the AGBU France District, and the AGBU Sao Paulo Chapter have set new fundraising records, collecting over $40,000, $25,000 and $9,000, respectively. Following suit, AGBU Montreal has also pledged $10,000. Even non-AGBU entities, such as the Armenian Youth and Student Association of Austria, have joined the cause.
