Our Mission

Finlandia Foundation National has been fiercely Finnish since 1953; we champion our culture and heritage across the United States by supporting educational opportunities and promoting diverse, relevant and enriching programs.

Saving Finland in America

With the closing in 2023 of Finlandia University, which was founded in 1896 as Suomi College,
FFN stepped in to become the caretaker of the Finnish American Heritage Center
and its extensive archives and artifacts, the monthly Finnish American Reporter,
the Finnish American Folk School, the Art Gallery, Price of Freedom Museum and North Wind Books store.
