KZV Endowment Fund at $1.4 Million 25th Anniversary

SAN FRANCISCO–This November–the Krouzian-Zekarian-Vasbouragan (KZV) Armenian School in San Francisco–CA will celebrate its 25th anniversary.

To ensure the continued success and financial stability of the only Armenian American School in Northern California–the Finance Committee of the school has established the KZV Endowment Fund–which has already raised $1.4 million.

For 25 years–KZV has pursued its mission "to provide a first rate–high quality academic education in a safe environment–while also instilling in [the] students a sense of pride in their Armenian identity." The school has consistently produced high scoring students and graduates who have continued their education at some of the country’s finest learning institutions.

With the help of the Endowment Fund–the KZV plans on improving and adding to its current programs. Several new programs include Spanish classes for grades 5 through 8–Honors classes for Algebra–and a newly wired school-wide network.

Though the entire San Francisco community has supported the efforts of the school–major donors to the KZV Fund include Henry and Rita Khachaturian ($1 million)–Jirair and Serpouhie Sarkissian ($200 thousand)–Steve and Louise Krouzian Noroian($150 thousand)–and Siroun Bazigian($150 thousand).
