The Armenian American Museum announced $8,138,986 at its inaugural Telethon, a major milestone that puts the historic project one step closer to its highly anticipated groundbreaking celebration.

Thousands of community members and supporters from across the country and around the world tuned in to the six-hour Telethon on February 17, 2019. The widely watched television event featured informative video segments and interviews with community leaders, organizations, and special guests as well as check presentations by generous supporters.

The Telethon finale featured a $1 million joint check presentation by the ten cultural, philanthropic, and religious non-profit organizations who serve on the Armenian American Museum Board of Trustees.

Proceeds from the Telethon went towards the Armenian American Museum Groundbreaking Campaign. The campaign’s goal is to raise an estimated $12 million by early 2020 to begin construction on the project. The Museum has raised $8.1 million through its cumulative fundraising efforts and is approaching the campaign’s fundraising goal.
