The Aram Society is financed primarily by benefactors whose regular or occasional donations are used towards the Society’s expenses. However, there is always a shortfall, especially now that we have to cover the expenses of three branches, in Oxford, in Harvard, and in Beirut.
Aram would appeal to all supporters of its aims to provide financial and moral assistance, in order to enable it to continue its cultural mission. This mission is making daily progress throughout the world, and naturally entails an increase in expenditure.
We are ready to provide any person who is interested in helping Aram with a detailed report of our expenditures and financial needs.
Aram is establishing a tradition whereby its projects are linked with the names of their benefactors, in order to show that Aram is a gift from its friends to the world of culture.
Those who wish to help Aram are invited to join the Board of Patrons which aims to support Aram financially and morally in its cultural mission. Patrons are welcome from anywhere in the world; they are patrons of the Aram Society as a whole, and not of one branch in particular.
Membership of the Board of Patrons is held for each calendar year and extended with the agreement of both the benefactor and the Executive Committee of Aram. The Board meets officially once a year, on the inaugural day of the annual conference of Aram, either in Oxford, in Harvard or in Beirut. The purpose of the meeting is to discuss the accounts of Aram and the board’s contribution to the financial needs of the Society for the coming year.
Members of the Board of Patrons are honorary members of the Aram Fellowship, and the Executive Committee of the Society will maintain regular contacts with them in order to inform them about the activities of the Society and the ways in which money is used to finance the Aram projects.
The minimum cost of membership in the Board of Patrons is $200 per month or $2400 annually, and includes a free subscription to the Aram periodical.
