A big thankyou to the donors
The fundraising campaign Strengthen the Power of Art collected over 3,5 million euros.
Uniarts Helsinki’s fundraising campaign Strengthen the Power of Art ended on 30 June. Over 3.5 million euros in total were collected for the benefit of arts education.
Uniarts Helsinki received donations to its campaign from private individuals, foundations and businesses. The biggest donations were made by Kone Foundation and Saastamoinen Foundation and by influencers in the book industry: Heikki Herlin, Otava Ltd and Otava Book Foundation.
The return on the capital gained through the campaign will help Uniarts Helsinki to offer our young artists the top-level education that they deserve also in the future. The funds will also be used for promoting the emerging field of artistic research at Uniarts Helsinki.
Heartfelt thanks to all supporters of the arts!

How can I support the arts
Donations improve Uniarts Helsinki’s opportunities to support young artists to pursue their careers. With the help of donations, we can launch new study programmes and strengthen our international cooperation, for example.
You can support the studies of gifted young students with a donation or a bequest or by setting up a fundraising campaign to celebrate a special day in your life. You can make the donation to Uniarts Helsinki in general or choose to steer the funds to a specific artistic field – fine arts, music, dance or theatre. You can also support young students’ studies by funding instrument acquisitions.
