The Armenian Educational Foundation initiative has been to reach out to our supporters by matching their contribution of "in-lieu of present" gifts to AEF from their private parties and receptions. We happily match these gifts to further the valuable gift of education.
In 2007 AEF received $22,500 in gift matching donations, and matched $22,500 bringing the total for this program to $45,000.
Since 1950, the Armenian Educational Foundation, Inc. (AEF) has been the backbone of the Armenian educational movement, worldwide.
