Many beneficiaries and Maecenas had their investment in restoring Gyumri, to whom the people of Gyumri are grateful. Taking into account the fact of being declared as the CIS cultural capital, Gyumri municipality and “Maecenas” sponsorship unity are announcing the “Gyumri Maecenas of the Year” and “Gyumri honorary Maecenas” titles establishment for 2013. Physical or legal individuals, who will have the most investment in Gyumri’s infrastructure or cultural development throughout the year, will be awarded with the “Gyumri Maecenas of the Year” title and the medal. Throughout five years, the “Gyumri honorary Maecenas” title and the medal will be awarded.
