SFV in a nutshell

SFV was founded in 1882 to cater for basic schooling and libraries, and to publish educative books for the Swedish speaking population of Finland.

Today the mission is much broader – SFV owns and supports educational centers and vocational schools, owns publishers and cultural venues, publishes a cultural magazine, and encourages people with prizes and scholarships.

Each year SFV is also a big benefactor to a varying array of cultural and educational events and projects.
