Armenian Heritage Foundation
Armenian Heritage Foundation, a 501 (c) (3) non-profit corporation, is the sponsor of Armenian Heritage Park. The Foundation’s forty-five member Board of Directors is comprised of a representative from churches and organizations within Massachusetts. 
 
Spearheaded by the efforts in 2000 by then Representatives now Registrar of Motor Vehicles Rachel Kaprielian and Middlesex Sheriff  Peter J. Koutoujian,  the Foundation has invested resources in the Park's design and development, and raised funds to construct and build the Park and to establish endowed funds for programs including the annual reconfiguration of the sculpture, annual lecture on human rights and the Park's maintenance and care.
 
A gift to the City of Boston and Commonwealth of Massachusetts from Massachusetts Armenian Americans, the Park is funded by the generous support of individuals, churches and organizations.  The initial gift to launch the fund raising campaign was received from the Knights of Vartan, Ararat Lodge.
