You love Tom! We love Tom!

Here at Tom of Finland Foundation, we are committed to keeping Tom’s vision and spirit alive: A spirit that celebrates Gay life, Homo sex, the Queer community, and the Arts.

We are asking for your support to help us keep Tom’s Foundation operating as the world-renowned collection of Homoerotic art, beacon of Tom’s legacy and spirit, sponsor of community events throughout the world, and cultural phenomenon that we all have come to know and love.

We are BUSY at TOM House! Did you know?

We can’t do this work on our own. We need your ongoing commitment to help us keep Tom of Finland Foundation operating, whether as a Volunteer, a Collector, or a Member. Members are the very life blood of the Tom of Finland Foundation. We count on you to join, renew or upgrade your membership. We are very grateful for each active Member at every membership level.

With many thanks,



Durk Dehner, President and Cofounder




Your history. Our future.

TOM’s Foundation turned 33 years old this month. Together, let’s move forward to the 34th – and beyond!

Erotic art has always been an essential part of Queerness. One of the main elements of what makes our community so special and unique is that our sexuality has brought us together — and it’s what makes us stand apart. Tom of Finland Foundation programs foster the continuation of this value that is vital to the preservation of our tribe.

Join with us in protecting, preserving, documenting and educating the public about erotic art and erotic artists. Please help us continue to encourage the work of erotic visual artists regardless of race, creed, religion, gender, sexual identity, medium of expression or any other censoring criteria.
