The Hairenik Building Restoration Fund is a campaign by the Armenian Revolutionary Federation to raise money to upgrade and repair the Hairenik Building, the Watertown, Massachusetts, USA offices of the Hairenik Association.

The Hairenik Association moved to its present location in 1986 following a long fundraising campaing to replace its aging headquarters on Stuart Street in Downtown Boston. Competing priorities in the years immediately following (which saw the staggering combination of the 1988 Spitak earthquake, the Karabagh autonomy movement, and the 1991 independence of Armenia) left maintenance often deferred. Following the 1998 campaign that retired the building's mortgage, the Restoration Fund seeks to modernize the Hairenik Building and return it to a good state of repair.
