The Foundation’s support transcends the boundaries of art and science
Saastamoinen Foundation is both genuinely international and proudly rooted in Kuopio. The values laid out by the Foundation’s founders still guide us today in actively supporting causes within and without universities and the art community.
We believe in young people, in locality and in a future full of new experiences. This is why we support causes such as children’s cultural projects, selected sports-related organisations and Finnish filmmakers, not to forget other important causes such as lake rescue operations and cultural projects relating to the history of the Saastamoinen family business in the village of Syvänniemi.
