Past - Present - Future

The FFMi was formed by Finnish  leaders who felt the  need for an organization to promote the cultures of the Finnish and Nordic peoples. The values and contributions of these people have made significant contributions to the United States of America. Our changing world makes our FACC mission increasingly significant as technology changes the way we do things. In our busy American society, people commit less time to cultural activities, while increasingly fewer immigrants come from the countries of our parents and grandparents.

Faced with these two societal changes, cultural preservation is left to organizations such as ours. We plan to continue the development of Finnish/Nordic American culture by remembering the past, promoting the present, and creating a lasting presence of Finnish American culture for the future.


The Finlandia Foundation of Michigan is pleased to announce that two new members have been added to the FACC Board of Directors. 

 Mr. Ruben Nayback is the former Finnish Counsel for the Lower Peninsula of Michigan.  Nayback is also former Chairman of the Finnish Center Board of Trustees.

 Mr. Erik Lindquist is a local attorney, and established a solo practice after years of counsel to Comerica, General Motors, and Disney.  Lindquist is the Chairman of the Farmington Hills Zoning Board of Appeals, and sought a seat on the City Council in 2011. 

 Both men are active FCA members, and bring knowledge and experience to enhance the FFMi.  We are delighted to have them join as directors of the Board!
