Annually, Sanoma supports carefully selected partners with donations to strengthen its positive impact on society and local communities, and reinforce the Sanoma brand. These partners can be international, national and local organisations or activities that represent values important to Sanoma.

Sanoma’s Annual General Meeting decides the amount of our non-profit donations and authorises the Board of Directors to decide on the contributions. Consistent with our ethical standards, we are transparent about our contributions and do not make donations to political or religious movements or representatives nor to purposes that are unethical or illegal. We comply with applicable laws and regulations in making donations and ensure that there is no misuse or corrupt purposes.
