MEMBERSHIP & BENEFITS

Now you can become a member of our organization and help support our ongoing cultural work in the New York area. We also need everyone to pitch in for our long term project to secure a permanent home away from home in New York for Finns and all friends of Finland – a place where the values we cherish – women’s empowerment, peace, equality, human rights, education, and sustainable development – are nurtured! This project is for you, me, our children and the world.
