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.

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.

Long-term work towards the wellbeing of young people

ShedHelsinki 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. The chairman of the Board of ShedHelsinki Foundation is Elisa's CEO Veli-Matti Mattila.

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

Over 30 years in cooperation with Helsinki Festival

We have long-term cooperation with Helsinki Festival. Elisa plays an important role in enabling the largest multi-arts festival in the Nordic countries. 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.

Digitalisation belongs to everyone

Part of our everyday responsibility work includes, for example, free Elisa digital schools organised for children in various localities. We also teach the elderly to use new technology, for example, at SeniorSurfDay events organised in service housing.

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 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.

Supporting Helsinki Pride

It is especially important for us to provide our employees with a safe space to be exactly what they are. We want to promote the well-being and cohesion of our employees every day. 

Together with other operators, we have been involved in supporting  Helsinki Pride for years.

Elisians in voluntary work supporting diversity

Since 2017 Elisians have been able to participate in voluntary also during working hours. Our theme is promoting diversity and preventing social marginalisation. Everyone is given the opportunity to do a day of voluntary work. 

Elisians have been involved in various operations with Hope Association and the Mannerheim League for Child Welfare, ShedHelsinki musical theatre, Pride Helsinki and Nenäpäivä events, and Children of the Station association.
