About Us

The Fund for Armenian Relief (FAR) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to making every aspect of daily life brighter for people in Armenia.

Founded in response to the 1988 earthquake that devastated Armenia by the Diocese of the Armenian Church of America (Eastern), FAR was reorganized into a private voluntary organization and recognized as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit by the IRS in March 1993. FAR has implemented more than 220 relief, development social, educational, and cultural projects valued at more than $265 million. By catering its programs to the changing needs of the people and by partnering with donors from around the globe, FAR offers hope to the most vulnerable segments of the population by empowering them with the tools, resources and guidance to shape their future for the better.
