Ilmarinen’s Christmas donation goes to the Children and Youth Foundation

Instead of sending Christmas greetings, Ilmarinen supports the Children and Youth Foundation with a donation.

Ilmarinen will donate 5,000 euros to the Children and Youth Foundation's Christmas fundraiser, which raises funds to strengthen young people's faith in the future. The donation target was selected by a staff vote.

- The Children and Youth Foundation does a variety of work and reaches a large number of young people every year. Corona times have been challenging, especially for young people. Building faith in the future is now particularly important, says Liina Aulin, Ilmarinen's EVP, Communications and Corporate Responsibility.

Ilmarinen donates annually to non-profit causes. Donations support research or activities aimed at prolonging working careers, promoting the integration of young people into working life and preventing disability and exclusion. The amount of funds used for donations is decided annually by the General Meeting.

Earlier this year, Ilmarinen made donations to MIELI Mental Health Finland and the Finnish Red Cross.
