The Foundation for Pluralism aims to promote and support pluralism and diversity in Finnish society. Primarily, the Foundation promotes and supports cultural pluralism, as well as diversity in values.
Many immigrants in Finland face discrimination and inequality, at the same time as a polarized and tense atmosphere within society is making respectful dialogue nearly impossible. It’s these challenges that the Foundation for Pluralism works to tackle. We want to build an open and understanding Finnish society, where everyone is equal. With this in mind, the Foundation primarily supports projects that meet one or more of the following criteria:
- Supporting cultural diversity and reducing discrimination
- Enabling respectful dialogue and increasing understanding by positive means
- Strengthening NGOs and civil society actors (for example by building capacity or by offering skills training etc.)
