The end of 2011 marked the end of the UW’s Finnish Program’s fundraising campaign. In the Tetri Challenge, Mr. Eero Tetri had promised to match all donations made to the program by the end of the year, up to $50,000.
We are proud to announce the $50,000 mark was hit - an amazing $62,000 was donated to the UW Finnish Program. Suurkiitokset, and a heartfelt thank you to all individuals and organizations that supported our important cause. With Mr. Tetri’s match, an additional $50,000, the program is well on its way to a steadier footing. We were happy to receive donations from both in and out of state, thus highlighting the value seen in the program both locally and nationally. A celebration will be organized later this spring. Thank you all!
