The Savings Banks Research Foundation supports financial, social and legal research and publishing activities related to the money markets, the demand for banking services, housing, saving and investment by awarding scholarships and research grants. The Savings Banks Research Foundation also preserves the history of savings bank operations; for example, by maintaining the Savings Bank Museum, which operates in conjunction with the Hämeenlinna City Museum.

The foundation’s grants are funded by the proceeds from its assets. Over the long term, the amount of grants awarded per year has hovered around EUR 100,000 depending on the profitability of the foundation’s investment activities at the time.
