Finnish American Cultural in the News
Have you ever wondered how people of Finnish heritage are going to keep their culture alive in this rapidly changing world? With very few Finnish immigrants coming to the United States, it is left to Finnish Americans to continue the cultural traditions of our people. The impact of social media has brought many of us together and has added to the homogeneity of American culture. Cultural values brought by the original immigrants and refined by first generation Americans are less evident in modern society today. It is our aim to assist in the preservation of Finnish and Finnish American culture.
A new corporation, the Finnish American Cultural Corporation (FACC), was formed in Michigan two years ago as a non-profit corporation. The goal of the corporation is to organize for charitable causes and to educate about, support, cultivate and perpetuate Finnish and Finnish American culture and heritage. The FACC has received its designation as a 501(c) 3 non-profit public charity by the Internal Revenue Service. This designation will allow the FACC to receive federal, state, and corporate grants, as well as donations from members and other interested persons. Gifts presented to the FACC from members and the general public are now tax deductible on federal income taxes to the fullest extent of the law. As resources grow, the FACC will also have the opportunity to provide grants for those entities that support the mission of the corporation. The FACC is authorized to solicit funds under the laws of the State of Michigan.
The Finnish American Cultural Corporation will offer support for education, educational scholarships and heritage programs of Nordic countries. Persons interested in learning more about their heritage and culture are welcome to become supporting members. Supporting membership in the FACC is $25.00 per member per year. Membership applications are available by email at Frrankk@att.net, or by calling 248-549-4056.
Small grants for worthy projects are available from the FACC. A new information sheet and application are now available.
