The Armenian Missionary Association of America (AMAA) was founded in 1918, in Worcester, MA, and incorporated as a non-profit charitable organization in 1920 in the State of New York. The AMAA is a 501 (c) 3 tax-exempt organization (Fed No. 13-5670954).
The AMAA’s purpose is to serve the physical and spiritual needs of people everywhere, both at home and overseas. To fulfill this worldwide mission, the AMAA maintains a range of educational, evangelistic, relief, social service, church and child care ministries in 22 countries around the world.
The AMAA is governed by an elected Board of Directors composed of twenty-seven unpaid members. Its committees are composed of qualified, unpaid volunteers. A paid office staff administers the life and work of the AMAA. Administrative and overhead costs are less than the average organization.
AMAA emphasizes full financial disclosure, accountability and careful stewardship of funds. Financial records are audited annually.
The mission and service ministry of the AMAA is made possible through the Grace of God and by the gifts of individuals and churches who are committed to fulfilling the Great Commission – “Go into all the world and preach the Gospel to all creation.” (Mark 16:15)
