Honor Your Loved Ones at the Finlandia Foundation Family Tree
On December 6, 1917 Finland declared its independence, a historic event worthy of the yearlong centennial celebration underway in Finland and among the Finnish-American population in the United States. Finnish immigrants settled at the New Sweden colony on the Delaware River in 1640, but the “Great Migration” of Finns to North America took place between 1870 and 1930.
In the decades since, those resolute early immigrants have been followed by others who have come to this country for a variety of personal and professional reasons.
Because most FFN members trace their roots to Finland, we thought that this special year would be the ideal time to begin a new way to pay tribute to those loved ones who came before.
With your Centennial Honor contribution you will be able to recognize your honoree in the FFN print newsletter and here at the new Finlandia Foundation Family Tree. There are three options for this tribute:
2. For a gift of $250, your loved one will be listed in the FFN newsletter and you will be able to provide a photo and a 250-word story about the honoree, which will appear here in the new Family Tree. This tribute is limited to the first 100 contributors at the $250 level.
3. For a gift of $500 or more, your loved one will be listed in the FFN newsletter and you will be able to provide two photos and a 500-word story about the honoree, which will appear here in the new Family Tree. This tribute is limited to the first 100 contributors at the $500 level.
Because FFN is a 501(c)(3) organization, your donation is tax deductible. Additionally, the Paloheimo Foundation will match donations to FFN (up to $100,000 annually).
Make your Centennial Honor contribution of $100, $250 or $500 or more today, and celebrate your family’s history along with the 100th anniversary of Finland’s independence.
