From Artsakh to Aleppo, history has been repeating itself lately.

With the tragic loss of Artsakh, people’s photographs were also lost. In an instant, thousands of photographs documenting many generations of vibrant Armenian culture and life on that land are gone. And once gone, such photographs–and the stories they tell–are irreplaceable.

Project Save is the largest and oldest organization in the world whose mission has been to preserve, catalog, and share photographs of the Armenian global experience. In our 48 years, never has that mission been more urgent and vital than right now.

Invest in our mission to preserve and tell the Armenian story through photographs–a universal story of struggle, survival, change, and revival.

Did you know managing a photography archive as large as Project Save costs at least $396,000 per year?

And yet, for 48 years, our annual budget has been less than half of what’s required. We’ve made tremendous progress since 2021, and we have further plans for expansion and outreach, but we need your support on a larger scale to help us finally reach Project Save’s potential.

We’ve made tremendous progress since 2021, culminating with our recent big move to a wonderful new location with more offices and a gallery space for exhibits and events! And we have further plans for major expansion and outreach, but we need your support on a larger scale to help us finally reach Project Save’s potential.
