Making a Donation

Medical Research. For Your Health.

The Biomedicum Helsinki Foundation makes progress in Finnish health care possible. It supports research in pharmaceuticals and treatment therapy in Finland. The Foundation supports a broad range of research fields from cancer to childlessness. It can be said that Biomedicum Helsinki guarantees the knowledge doctors need in their work.

Biomedicum Helsinki funds research with the donations it receives. As society continually decreases its support on medical research, the role of private donors and businesses in collecting funds is becoming increasingly more important.

Medical research is vital for developing new forms of treatment, discovering and investigating new medicines, and taking new diagnostic methods into use.

As a result of medical research, treatments become more specialized, stays at hospitals become shorter and recovery is faster. This in turn saves money and decreases absences from work due to illnesses.

Long-term work and substantial financial resources are, however, required for research.

Involvement of Businesses in Socially Important Work

The business has an opportunity to be involved in this socially important work. A business can direct funds to e.g. research in occupational health and diseases related to its field.

A fund bearing the name of a business can be set up within the Biomedicum Helsinki Foundation. From this fund, financial aid can be directed to any medical research that the business desires.  

Tax Deductible Donations
Donations made to the Foundation are tax deductible in Finland if the sum of the donation is between 850 and 50,000 Euros.
