Vapers Finland ry funds its operations by collecting membership fees, from both regular and supporting members, and by selling merchandise designed around the association. In addition to these fundraising methods, we can accept donations. The fact of the matter is, that even though our member base is large and passionate, we could not operate without the continued support of the entire scene being behind and next to us. We’ve come a long way, but there are still a multitude of hurdles to overcome. This is why Your continued support is needed and appreciated.
IF you wish to make a donation, you may do so with the banking details listed below. You can also donate completely anonymously if you so wish. Please make sure to mention this in the message field of the payment
