The Central Executive of the Hamazkayin Armenian & Cultural Society announced the receipt of a generous contribution in the amount of $50,000 from the Lincy Foundation–donated in September 1998. This sum will be allocated for the educational and cultural summer programs of Hamazkayin for the year 1999.
"The implementation and success of our projects are made possible by donations from caring individuals and benevolent foundations. The Lincy Foundation was swift and discerning in making this timely contribution which will help alleviate some of Hamazkayin’s financial burden for the coming year," read a statement by the Hamazkayin Central Executive.
"Hamazkayin is a well-established cultural organization with chapters throughout the world–which maintain Armenian schools–cultural centers–and educational summer programs. It is through the financial contributions like that of the Lincy Foundation that Hamazkayin is able to implement such programs–which ultimately help safeguard the Armenian language–culture–and identity in the Diaspora," the statement continued.
"We applaud the contribution of the Lincy Foundation–wishing them a prosperous future of continued dedication and support and cultural organizations," concluded the statement.
