SHERMAN OAKS, CA – The Lincy Foundation announced on Friday that it has once again contributed $125,000 to the C. & E. Merdinian Armenian Evangelical School.
The school was notified of the grant in a letter received just before Christmas from Lincy Foundation President Jay Rakow and Vice President Harout Sassounian.
The Merdinian School thanked the Lincy Foundation for the donation in a statement released on Friday. “The Merdinian School Family, including the Board of Directors, PTO, Ladies’ Auxiliary, administration, faculty, staff and the student body, are extremely grateful for having the significant support of the Lincy Foundation in our march forward, we look ahead to even a brighter future,” the school said.
The grant is the latest donation to an Armenian school in the United States by the Lincy Foundation.
Established in 1982, Merdinian educates Armenian children ages 3-13, from preschool through 8th grade. It offers a rich program in Armenian Language, History and Religion, as well as subjects required by the California Department of Education.
