Welcome to the
Izmirlian Foundation's Web Site

The Izmirlian Foundation is a philanthropic organization founded in 1994, in the memory of Sarkis and Marie Izmirlian, by their children.

The Izmirlian Foundation contributes regularly to various projects within Armenia in such fields as education, health care, and varied development assistance. In an effort to improve the business climate in Armenia by fostering the creation of employment opportunities in Armenia, the Izmirlian Foundation finances, at below market rates, three separate lending facilities in sectors ranging from microfinance to large-scale loans to Armenia's leading companies.
