Humans are endowed with innate creative abilities; we have formed civilizations and societies, framed laws, built architectural marvels and created cultural masterpieces. It is our creative abilities that have allowed us to produce magnificent cultural and scientific achievements for thousands of years.
Since the dawn of time, however, humanity has faced massive threats and calamities, both natural and man-made, that have led to the eradication of cultural traditions and relics, scientific accomplishments, and even entire populations. The most devastating of all man-made calamities is genocide.
The Armenian Genocide (1915-1923) was the twenty-first century’s first and most documented genocide. In fact, the word “genocide” was coined specifically to describe the planned extermination of the Armenians at the hands of the Ottoman Turks. Yet, this genocide has largely escaped recognition, primarily for political reasons. In fact, many scholars believe that the Armenian Genocide served as a model for future genocides.
The mission of Cultural Impact Foundation, Inc., “the Foundation”, a 501 (c) (3) tax-exempt nonprofit organization formed in 2017, is to advance and support multi-media projects that recognize and celebrate human benevolence and ingenuity, and, in so doing, help eradicate prejudice, discrimination, and other social injustices. In addition, it is our hope that these projects will help prevent future atrocities and genocides, and the destruction that they bring to the cultural heritage of those targeted or oppressed.
The Foundation will help advance projects that celebrate human endurance against all odds and recognize those who have triumphed over adversities. Furthermore, the Foundation will showcase projects that highlight human rights issues, social injustices, and untold stories of human interest.
We urge you to consider supporting the Foundation. The untold tales of history are waiting to be unveiled. They need to be told or we, as humans, are condemned to repeat the offenses of the past. These projects simply need financial support for the artists who will bring them to light.
Your financial contribution is crucial to the realization of our mission. To make a donation, please go to the Donate Page.
