A note from Co-Founders
It is with great joy that I announce the creation of the Aznavour Foundation, co-founded with my son Nicolas Aznavour. Its mission will be to continue the charitable work I started many years ago, as well as to create new prospects of growth for talented youth.
I am proud and honored that my father has bestowed upon me this great responsibility and I will help to continue implementing the humanitarian projects and mission he started around the world. Regardless of the obstacles our ancestors had faced, our roots have run strong and deep for millennials and it is our responsibility to tend to them".
