President’s Council

Key to FFN Success

The President’s Council is Finlandia Foundation National’s leadership giving program. Its goal is to raise the critical operating support that is essential to our ability to grow the programs and services we provide for the Finnish-American community.

As a member of President’s Council, you provide the vision and resources to help us realize our mission. Your membership ensures that Finlandia Foundation National has the means to grow our scholarship program and the funds to provide programs that support Finnish-American culture and bring to life our Finnish heritage. Your gift allows us to plan ahead and plan wisely.

The Paloheimo Foundation, our partner in supporting Finnish-American culture and championing Finnish heritage, has made a generous $100,000 match and challenges you to get involved. For every $1 you give as a member of the President’s Council, The Paloheimo Foundation will match it, dollar for dollar. 

The President’s Council recognizes donors who make Finlandia Foundation National one of their philanthropic priorities. This includes special recognition and listing in Finlandia Foundation National’s bi-annual newsletter and on our website. Please consider making a personal—and powerful—-statement and become a member of the President’s Council today.
