Help Ensure the Success of the
Capital Gateway Program

Hovig Apo SaghdejianThe Capital Gateway Program has benefited tremendously from the generosity of donors committed to creating public service opportunities for young Armenian Americans.

The Program was initially launched with a gift from the Cafesjian Family. The leading financial contributor to the Program is the family of Hovig Apo Saghdejian, a 23-year old youth leader and community activist from Fresno, California, who lost his life in 2004 in a tragic car accident. In his memory, Hovig's family has established the Hovig Apo Saghdejian Memorial Fund. These funds are held in perpetuity, with all their income being used to finance the participation of young Armenian Americans in the Capital Gateway Program. As part of ensuring that Hovig's legacy of service continues to inform and inspire a new generation of Armenian youth, the ANCA Capital Gateway House, located in Washington, DC, has been dedicated in his honor.

The Lincy Foundation, founded by businessman and philanthropist Kirk Kerkorian, has been a major benefactor of the Capital Gateway Program, providing financial stability for this youth oriented initiative and helping it expand to meet the growing demand for its service among the next generation of Armenian Americans.

Armenian American Veterans Post of Milford, MassachusettsIn addition to the Lincy Foundation and the Hovig Apo Saghdejian Fellowship, the Capital Gateway Program has received substantial support from the Norman K. Miller Charitable Fund, established in memory of the Norman Miller (Norair Karekin Deirmengian), as well as longtime ANCA benefactors Mr. and Mrs. Frank and Barbara Hekimian and the Armenian American Veterans Post of Milford, Massachusetts (AAVO). Founded in 1946 by returning veterans of World War II and later expanded to include veterans of the Korean War, the AAVO has been a devoted contributor to community organizations and projects. They have been recognized for their generosity in newspapers, official proclamations, and through the appreciation of the many recipients of their humanitarian gifts.

Donations to the ANCA Capital Gateway Program are tax-deductible. To learn more about how you can help ensure its future success and growth, email gateway@anca.org.
