Cooperation projects and sponsoring

Elisa's mission is a sustainable future through digitalisation. Participating in social dialogue is important for us. We are engaged in persistent work towards the wellbeing of young people, in particular.

We support carefully selected targets. Our cooperation partners appeal to wide focus groups, are responsible and comply with Elisa's values whilst having natural links to our business. We always commit to long-term cooperation.

Every year, we donate the money that would otherwise be spent on Christmas cards to charity.

Elisa and the Mannerheim League for Child Welfare join forces to promote digital wellbeing of the youth

We help the Ukrainians in need

Right now, our thoughts and compassion are with the Ukrainians and we want to help those affected by the war in Ukraine. We will make every effort to ensure that refugees arriving from Ukraine to Finland can keep in touch with their loved ones and have given them thousands of prepaid subscriptions. We have also made a donation of EUR 50 000 to UNICEF, who on the spot will help Ukrainian children to survive in the midst of the war.

More than 2,000 children have studied in Elisa's Digischools

Since 2014, Elisa has been promoting the digital skills of Finnish children with Elisa Digischools. The main focus of the educational content has been on the basics of coding and programming. In digital schools, children aged 10–12 have been able to get to know robots, the Internet of Things and digitisation, among other things.

Long-term work towards the wellbeing of young people

Shed Säätiö sr is founded by Elisa. The foundation supports work for children and youth, focusing on diversity and special needs children. The foundation produces creative events, such as musicals, together with several organizations and partners. 

Elisa has supported young people especially against social marginalisation for several years. Shed combines in a unique way the power of youth and diversity.

Luurit looppiin - recycling initiative

The best and most resource-saving way to extend the life of your phone is to refurbish and resell it in Finland. If the phone does not continue its journey from one family member to another, it is worth returning it to Elisa, for example, so that the phone can still be refurbished and resold at Fonum. We also recycle unusable old phones safely. We set up Luurit Looppiin initiative to promote circular economy.

Supporting team sports and young athletes

In supporting sports, Elisa invests in team sports and the career paths of young, emerging athletes.

Thanks to our fast 5G network, the best possible connections to the festival venues are ensured. We are involved in enabling a versatile urban culture, where technology also plays a key role.

Supporting health care and services for the elderly

Elisa has supported the Queen Silvia Nursing Award scholarship programme for several years. We participate in developing services and ensuring sustainable development in healthcare and for ageing people.
