Our mission is to promote Finnish culture and traditions in the Bay Area for anyone interested in Finland and Finnish-American heritage.
Our umbrella organization, the Finlandia Foundation National (FFN), includes nearly 60 national chapter organizations across the United States. Along with sustaining Finnish-American culture in the United States, FFN also offers grants and scholarships to students and those pursuing artistic and cultural traditions that represent the heritage of Finland. Anne-Mari Paster serves as the current President of FFN. If you would like to learn more about Finlandia Foundation National, click here to visit their website.
The San Francisco Bay Area Chapter was originally founded in 1956 and is one of the oldest chapters. Our events are developed with an inclusive mindset and are open to everyone in the Bay Area; Finns, Finnophiles, and supporters of Finnish and Finnish-American culture.
