Armenian Heritage Foundation 

Armenian Heritage Foundation, a 501(c) (3) non-profit corporation, is the sponsor of Armenian Heritage Park on The Greenway, Boston.  

Spearheaded in 2000 by the efforts of then Massachusetts House of Representatives Peter J. Koutoujian and Rachel Kaprielian. the Foundation invested resources in the Park's design and development, and raised funds to construct and build the Park and to establish endowed funds to support the annual reconfiguration of the Abstract Sculpture, programs at the Park and the annual lecture on human rights. 


Presently funds are being raised to fully endow the Park's Endowed Fund for Care and Maintenance.

A gift to the City of Boston and Commonwealth of Massachusetts from Armenian-Americans, the Park is funded by the generous support of individuals, parishes and organizations.  The initial gift to launch the fund raising campaign was received from the Knights of Vartan, Ararat Lodge.
