You can support our activities by participating in fundraising events or campaigns or by making monetary donations or bequests. Together we can create extraordinary moments in contemporary art. Donations made by corporate bodies are tax deductible.


Kiasma Support Foundation’s fundraising events are organised with the assistance of volunteers and corporate sponsors. Gala dinners, visits to private collectors’ homes and other similar events signal the importance of supporting the Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma. Kiasma Support Foundation is grateful to all private individuals and businesses who have supported our mission.
