FFN is a non-profit, philanthropic organization
Finlandia Foundation National raises funds to strengthen its endowment and ensure the continuation of its programs.
The Performer of the Year and Lecturer of the Year programs focus attention on the outstanding musical and academic contributions of the Finnish-American community. The winners of these two annual and national competitions travel and perform at chapter organizations throughout the United States.
Finlandia Foundation National also provides scholarships to students with a multitude of unique ties to the Finnish culture and awards dozens of grants each year providing critical and all too rare funding for individuals pursuing the artistic, musical and cultural traditions that represent the heritage of Finland and diverse interests of Finnish-Americans.
These programs, not offered by any other organization in the United States today, are what make the strengthening of the Finlandia Foundation National organization so compelling.
At Finlandia Foundation National, our overhead is low and that means more of your donation goes to scholarships and to our amazing programs. Additionally, our $100,000 in matching funds from The Paloheimo Foundation means that your donation will be matched dollar for dollar.
Finnish heritage and Finnish-American traditions and culture are too rich and too valuable to be lost. By building a solid network of chapters throughout the United States and increasing the number and amount of grants and scholarship for Finnish-American individuals and programs, Finlandia Foundation National will continue to inspire and strengthen the Finnish-American community of the United States for years to come.
