Fundraising is becoming more and more important in the fields of arts and science in Finland. The topic is increasingly covered by the media.
My own article was published in the main daily Helsingin Sanomat today with the title: "Create a Competitive Edge With Fundraising". You can read the article in Finnish: Varainhankinta kannattaa valjastaa valttikortiksi.
My article is a response to journalist Vesa Sirén's article on Thursday, where he compares fundraising to begging. Access Sirén's article here in Finnish: Yhdysvalloissa taide pyörii varainker(j)uulla.
Finally we are discussing about fundraising. Those organizations that start fundraising now in Finland will be the leaders of the future.
