The online Benefit Auction for Armenia powered by Artsy for the refugees of Artsakh was a great success. It helped us raise the amount of $150’000.

It was featuring 25 lots including works by Etel Adnan, Antony Gormley, Peter Halley, Robert Longo, Gérard Schneider and Chico da Silva, amongst others.

In the wake of the tragedy taking place in Armenia with more than 100,000 displaced people from Artsakh (also known as Nagorno-Karabakh), the Boghossian Foundation has considerably increased its contribution, efforts and aid to the country. By meeting the most urgent needs to the particularly vulnerable Armenian refugees, we aim to ensure that they can find shelter and survive.

The proceeds of the auction go to the AGBU Global Relief Fund which enables AGBU (Armenian General Benevolent Union) to offer various aid programs to tens of thousands of displaced Armenians from Artsakh restarting their lives in Armenia, including medical and mental health services, job trainings and placements, weekend and summer camps with trauma counselling, distribution of basic supplies such as heaters, and readiness to address the changing needs of the population.

The Boghossian Foundation warmly thanks the donors and participants for their generous support.
