100 for 100 Projects
To honor the centennial of the Armenian Genocide, The Paros Foundation created the Paros 100 for 100 Projects for Prosperity initiative. This effort identified and implemented 100 special projects aimed at making Armenia stronger and improving the lives of her people. The project categories for this effort included: Development; Humanitarian; Educational; and, Cultural. Sponsors funded projects both to honor their family or in the name of a loved one. Our historic 100th project was the launch of the Debi Arach Children’s Center in Gyumri in April of 2015. The Paros Foundation Founder and Chairman, Roger Strauch, and his family, remained committed throughout this campaign to underwrite all administrative costs associated with the foundation’s operation, allowed all donor contributions to be allocated 100% to their chosen project.
Following the successful implementation of the Paros 100 for 100 campaign, The Paros Foundation reached the decision to continue this model of project-specific based philanthropy through Projects for Prosperity. Please visit “Our Work” to view available projects.
