3. “YEGEGHETSIN HAYGAGAN” WESTERN PRELACY TV FUND.
One hundred thousand dollars ($100,000). The goal is to continue broadcasting with renewed vigor and in a new style on the TV program of the Western Prelacy, in order to introduce and disseminate the activities of the Armenian Church.

4. “NEW RELIGION TEXTBOOK PUBLICATION” FUND.
One hundred thousand dollars ($100,000).
