Following the 1998 earthquake in Armenia, the Boghossian family (now the Boghossian Foundation) considerably invested itself in the country’s reconstruction. This investment materialised through the funding of different educational, economic and cultural programs in different cities throughout the country.

Since 1994, Jean and Albert Boghossian have been honorary members of the HAYASTAN ALL-ARMENIAN FUND chaired by the President of the Republic. In 2002, Robert, Jean and Albert were appointed as honorary citizens of the city of Gyumri.
