'Kiitos' (Thank You) to Finlandia Foundation

'Kiitos' (Thank You) to Finlandia Foundation

The logo of Finlandia Foundation National which earlier this year awarded a grant of $1,500 to help publish the history of Esko and Thomson Township. The township was settled and developed mainly by people of Finnish heritage and continues to have a significant Finnish-American presence.  The foundation’s mission is “to sustain both Finnish-American culture in the USA and the ancestral tie with Finland by raising funds for grants and scholarships, initiating innovative national programs and networking with local chapters.”  It was established in 1953 and has its head office in Pasadena, Calif.  Minnesota has two FFN chapters:  Finnish-Americans and Friends in Hibbing, which also contributed to the book project, and the Finlandia Foundation Twin Cities Chapter in Minneapolis.
