Targets for sponsorship

In previous years, donations have been given to the Veterans Association of the Sates and the Red Cross Disaster Fund. Since then, Patria has supported the work on the prevention of social exclusion of young people from different locations in Patria for several years.

Support has been received by the Legionnaires Theater in Tampere, the Aseman Lapset association in Helsinki, the Young Services Service in Jämsä, the Detective Youth Work project in Hämeenlinna. In addition, Patria has supported the activities of the Save the Children Finland and SOS Children's Villages Association and the protection of the Baltic Sea.

Patria is supporting the Finnish Military Sports Federation aiming to promote a sports-oriented lifestyle among conscripts and thus improve their quality of life.

Patria has been sponsoring the Finnish Biathlon Association in 2011 and continues the cooperation in 2018-2019.

Patria, the Aviation Museum Society, Finland, the Finnish Air Force Museum and the Finnish Aviation Museum have agreed on the restoration of one VL Myrsky aircraft.
