Fund Drive

Sirdé Sird Campaign

This program is designed to assist ARS Canada in providing scholarships and awards to deserving post-secondary and high school students who excel in community service and scholastic achievement.

With your support, ARS Canada helps our youth by granting 12 university and 5 college/CEGEP students with scholarships of $1,000 each. The selection process is conducted independently by a group of scholars who review the applications and score them based on factors such as community involvement, scholastic achievement, and personal income.

Awards of $250 each are also given to two high school students with demonstrated leadership skills, who volunteer in their schools by helping younger students, and who are involved in extra-curricular activities.

Show Canadian-Armenian students that you care by investing in their future. Please donate generously to ARS Canada?s Sirdé Sird campaign.

Pocket Calendar

ARS Canada’s Pocket Calendar Drive is an annual project created to secure funding for core initiatives like disaster relief and education.

Funds are donated to help Armenians and non-Armenians inside and outside of Canada. In the past, recipients have included earthquake victims in Haiti, Armenian refugees in Syria, wounded individuals in Artsakh, and others.

This drive is a major source of income for the benefit of schools that instill Armenian culture and values in our children and that prepare our future leaders. It provides much-needed help to daily and one-day schools for children of all ages as well as to summer camps. It also helps families send their children to camps in France and the United States. These international projects create bonds between children in Canada and those elsewhere in the world and they help them appreciate the similarities and differences between Armenians from around the world.
