Along with fulfilling its own tasks and objectives, Posti also wants to look after the well-being of its customers and personnel. Our way of going about this is to provide support to select organizations and individuals who influence the lives of many people. Our support is based on interactive collaboration, in which Posti's role is not merely that of a financial sponsor, but a proactive operator.
The sponsoring cooperation targets we choose reflect Posti's value base. They represent responsible team spirit, accompanying people and companies in their everyday lives, and an uncompromising attitude towards one's own work We have participated in efforts enabling both recreational and professional engagement in sports and cultural activities, up to the heights of international success.
As the main cooperation partner of the Football Association of Finland, Posti has been supporting Finnish football for a long time all the way from the top to the grass root level. Last year almost 50 football clubs from all over Finland participated in the "Osoitteena futis" club development project. During the year the project moved children not only in football schools but also in some 400 events arranged for day-care centers and schools. It attracted new enthusiasts to start football as a hobby.
For many Christmases now, Posti has made a donation instead of sending Christmas gifts to customers and partners. In Christmas 2015, we channeled our support to SOS children's village in Finland.
Posti's Executive Board decides on Posti's sponsoring targets and the Board of Directors of Posti on donations. We annually operate within the framework of these decisions.
