The group raised $60,000 at the first meeting. They prevailed upon their acquaintances for additional funds. They wired $100,000 to Morgenthau in Constantinople in October 1915. In November 1915 the group adopted the name American Committee for Armenian and Syrian Relief (ACASR). The Committee appealed to trusted friends in the press to publish eyewitness accounts from missionaries.
