Donations and NON-COMMERCIAL sponsorship
We want to run and grow our business in a sustainable manner. We are committed to taking care of people involved in creating our products, and to contributing to the communities where we operate.
Fiskars has defined its philanthropic umbrella, stating the areas where we support local organizations in the communities where we operate through donations:
- Our future – Children
- Our environment – Nature
- Our past – Culture
We support both global and local projects within these categories. Fiskars’ business units and local sales units choose which local projects to support.
Our future – Children
We seek to nourish our future and believe that every child is entitled to have a safe and happy childhood. To enhance this effort we collaborate with SOS Children's Villages in Finland.
As part of the collaboration we support young people leaving a SOS Children’s Villages with a “Fiskars Start-Kit for your Home & Kitchen”, a basic set of dishes, cutlery, pans, and other practical items.
Our environment – Nature
We have to be the gardeners to foster the environment that we live in. One example of this is Fiskars’ Project Orange Thumb®, a community gardening initiative providing groups with the tools, materials and resources they need to create beautiful and productive community garden spaces.
Our past – Culture
Fiskars has over 365 years’ history of success which is proof of earned trust that lives on in today’s unique atmosphere of the company’s birthplace, Fiskars Village.
