and administers projects throughout Armenia and Artsakh in four
program categories: Development, Education, Humanitarian and Cultural.
Please consider becoming a family sponsor of a project in memory of
the Armenian Genocide by participating in the Paros Foundation's 100
for 100 Projects for Prosperity. Visit www.parosfoundation.org
[http://www.parosfoundation.org/]. The Paros Foundation underwrites
all administrative expenses allowing all sponsor contributions to be
allocated 100% to the project. Donations to The Paros Foundation, a
501(c) 3 private foundation, are tax-deductible to the fullest extent
allowed by law. Formally launched in 2006, The Paros Foundation
supports six exemplary local NGOs in Armenia with
contributions of quality rent-free program space, operating funds and
human resource support. To honor the upcoming centennial of the
Armenian Genocide, The Paros Foundation launched the Paros 100 for 100
Projects for
Prosperity in October of 2011. With an aggressive goal of
identifying, vetting, fundraising for and ultimately implementing 100
special projects, The Paros Foundation and its staff in Armenia and
the United States are
quickly earning a reputation as the "go to" organization to oversee
small and medium-sized project implementation in Armenia. For more
information and to get involved visit www.parosfoundation.org
