Our donations 2023-2023

In 2022, there was no new donation reserve proposed to the Annual General Meeting. The Board of Directors used its discretion and donation reserve from earlier years in supporting the Red Cross and several other initiatives with donations to help the relief work in Ukraine. In future years Sanoma will continue supporting communities through other types of cooperative initiatives related to for example literacy, media literacy and equal access to education. In 2022, donations and community investments amounted to EUR 88,000.
