Yes. Donations to AW are tax deductible in the United States once 501(c)(3) status is approved.
All donations are used to honor martyred and empower disabled warriors co-incident to their service on or after the April 2016 Artsakh War.

In other words, the plan is to purchase lands in Armenian cities and build a mixed use (office/retail) structures to accomplish AW’s mission.

WHY DONATE NOW?
Prior to last year’s war, there were an estimated 186,000 people living with disabilities in Armenia. While the national unemployment rate stands at around 18%, the rate among the disabled is a staggering 92%. And while the state provides disability compensation to citizens, payments are only roughly $35–$45 a month.
Armenian authorities have also not yet released the precise number of soldiers killed and wounded in action, but an estimated 4,000 warriors may have lost their lives, not including those warriors who are wounded and disabled, unidentified and being held as hostages. The numbers speak for themselves, but behind every number is a shattered mother, father, sister, brother and an entire nation. With the support of your donation, we can give a voice to our disabled warriors and family members of a martyred warrior. Donate now.
