Algol Group supports Finnish and global causes this Christmas
As in previous years, the Algol Group is donating to Finnish and global causes this Christmas instead of sending out cards and gifts.
Algol has supported the same causes for several years. This year, donations are being made once again to the following:
- John Nurminen Foundation, Clean Baltic Sea Project
- Finnish Lifeboat Institution
- Finnish Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund
- Folkhälsan, Lucia Collection
- Finnish War Veterans
- Crisis Management Initiative CMI
According to Algol Group CEO Alexander Bargum, a suitable balance between large and small organisations, as well as Finnish and international causes, has been sought.
“We want to support a range of causes that are important to us and are connected, for example, to the environment, safety and different age groups. We feel it is important to support the valuable work of these organisations on a long-term basis,” Bargum says.
This year, Algol has also donated 50,000 euros to humanitarian relief in Ukraine. Half of the amount was donated to UNICEF’s Ukraine Fund and half to the Disaster Relief Fund of the Finnish Red Cross. The company has also donated smaller amounts to support other non-profit causes during the year.
