CaPS and CapMan networks raise funds to prevent marginalisation of children and youth

December 16, 2021

A Holiday fundraise with an adjacent charity seminar made possible by CaPS and CapMan networks has raised EUR 195,000, which is donated for work to prevent the marginalisation of youth and children. We have raised approx. EUR 1 million for the Tukikummit foundation since 2014 and the contributions have reached approx. 12,000 children and youth in Finland. A warm thank you to all CaPS and CapMan network companies that have contributed to the fundraise and seminar.

CaPS and CapMan for Good foundation organised a seminar on 8 December to raise funds for the prevention of marginalisation of children and youth. The proceeds of the seminar, organised for the fourth time, are donated to Tukikummit foundation and CapMan for Good foundation.

Speakers at the seminar included Sauli Niinistö, the President of the Republic of Finland and Honorary Chair of the Tukikummit Foundation; Björn Wahlroos, Sampo’s and UPM’s Chairman of the Board; and Maria Wasastjerna and Essi Weseri, founders of the popular podcast Leadcast.

“There is a pronounced ambition to help children and families in a difficult situation, which is visible in the way in which so many companies are participating in this pre-Christmas event and fundraise for many years in a row. A heartfelt thank you to all speakers and participants and members of the CaPS and CapMan network for supporting families at risk of becoming marginalised,” comments Joakim Frimodig, CEO of CapMan and Chairman of the Board of the CapMan for Good foundation.

The Tukikumit foundation supports children and young people that are at risk of becoming marginalised due to the economic situation in their families. CaPS has together with its networks raised a total of approx. EUR 1 million for Tukikummit since 2014. The contributions have reached approx. 12,000 Finnish children and youth.

CapMan for Good supports youth well-being, education and entrepreneurship. The foundation started in 2019 and has supported the Aseman Lapset ry (Children of the Station) organisation, Eskilstuna Girls United initiative and organised mentoring for entrepreneurs.
