Finnish-American Organizations

There are a variety of Finnish-American organizations in the United States. Following are links to a few of them:

In addition, The League of Finnish American Societies, which has 9,000 members in Finland and the United States, operates from Finland. The organization publishes a quarterly member magazine called Suomi-USA.

Finnish Organizations in the U.S.

We are very proud of the many active Finnish-American communities in the United States. In the 1990 Census, there were 178 000 people in this area who considered themselves Finnish-American!
