Tufenkian foundation community briefing this Friday, June 9th at Tufenkian Carpets Portland Showroom

  •   Cancellation of the June 10th Fundraiser in Salem to raise money for seed and fertilizer for Artsakh

  •        Tufenkian Foundation Community Briefing event on Friday, June 9th in Portland about Artsakh


We have been eagerly preparing for our "Feed & Seed" Tufenkian Foundation fundraiser on Saturday, June 10, in Salem, and we were looking forward to meeting you. However, as you may know, Armenia and Azerbaijan have just announced a possible peace agreement, which creates great uncertainty for the population in Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabagh). With those people facing heightened risk, we think it's best to postpone our fundraising.


We would like to use Antranig Kasbarian's recent trip to hold a community briefing on June 9th in Portland instead. Please join us on Friday, June 9th (6:00 – 7:00 p.m.) at the Tufenkian Carpets Portland Showroom (Pearl District) , 515 NW 10th Ave, Portland, OR 97209. There is no fee to attend the community briefing. However, because of space limitations, we encourage people to RSVP to


As you may know, Kasbarian served as Executive Director of the Tufenkian Foundation Թուֆենկյան հիմնադրամ from 2007 until 2016 and currently serves as a Board member and as Director of Development, supervising partnerships, fundraising, and special projects.


We know that the Tufenkian Foundation will continue with its efforts to help the people of Artsakh. Should you wish to contribute to those efforts, feel free to contact Antranig directly, at, or talk to Antranig at the community briefing.


We apologize for the cancellation of the Seed and Feed fundraiser, but we think that there will be a great deal of interest in an update about the situation in Artsakh and the related geopolitical factors. We look forward to seeing you on Friday, June 9th at the Tufenkian Carpets Portland Showroom. 


Thank you

The Armenian Community in Oregon and SW Washington is a small one, but the costs of running a church and community center are high. Our church can only thrive with the contributions of all.
