We can’t do this work on our own.

TOM’s Foundation is funded by people like you.

Dear Supporter,
Tom of Finland Foundation (ToFF) has been committed for 34 years to keeping Tom’s vision and spirit alive; a spirit that celebrates Gay life, Homo sex, the Queer community, and the Arts. Throughout this time, ToFF has sponsored hundreds of community events, both at TOM House in Echo Park and other venues throughout the world, including:
  • The annual Art and Culture held in October in Los Angeles;
  • The annual TOM’s Bar at Faultline in Los Angeles celebrating Tom of Finland on Father’s Day;
  • Artist-in-Residence programs;
  • Erotic Art exhibitions supporting established and emerging erotic artists;
  • A host to local and global organizations utilizing TOM House for their entertainment needs, to name a just few!
  • Tom of Finland Foundation is here for you; our community here in Los Angeles and globally.

We are reaching out to you, a member of the community asking for your support in keeping Tom’s Foundation operating as the world-renowned collection of homoerotic art that it is and a beacon of Tom’s legacy and spirit that we have all come to know and love.

As you can see, we stay busy here at TOM House and likewise, we are excited to announce our newly revamped Membership Benefits Program, including our handsome new translucent membership card (see above). New benefits include:
  • Discounts on all full priced items (excluding the Bjarne Melgaard x Bjørg jewelry) at Tom of Finland Store online (you can find discount percentages online on our Members Page),
    • A one-time discount percentage for your first online purchase
    • An ongoing discount percentage for your subsequent online purchases
  • We are continuing to develop and expand membership benefits and will update you monthly via email regarding new and exciting benefits that we add.
As mentioned above, we at the Foundation can’t do this work on our own. We need your ongoing commitment to help us keep ToFF operating; whether as a Volunteer, a Collector, or a Member (Members are the very life blood of the Foundation). We count on you to join, renew or upgrade your membership. We are grateful for each active Member at every membership level. Join or renew your membership online.

With wishes for a positive and brighter new year,
Durk Dehner
President and Cofounder
