Donors and Employers United to Double Impact for ARS-WUSA

The Armenian Relief Society of Western USA extends its heartfelt appreciation to its generous donors who participate in employer matching programs, effectively doubling the impact of their contributions to the organization’s humanitarian mission.

Recently, the ARS of Western USA has seen an increase from young professionals and individuals from the community, supported by their employers, that have come together to amplify their support to charitable causes through the region. Through these employer matching contributions, donors have demonstrated an unwavering commitment to making a lasting difference for various programs.

Major donors include Vache Shirikian and Talar Boyadjian, alongside many others, who have made matching contributions from companies throughout the years. The region is part of the nonprofit partners of Benevity, which provides a platform for corporate giving programs.

“We are greatly appreciative for the individuals, who have not only opened their hearts to support our causes but have also taken the extra step to participate in employer matching programs. The collaboration between donors and their employers is a powerful example of uniting together to create positive change and fostering community engagement,” stated Vicky Marashlian, ARS Regional Executive Board Chairperson.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
