The Toivo Think Tank is a non-profit foundation under Finnish law and is a separate legal entity from the National Coalition Party; it was founded in 1938 and has operated ever since (under the name of Kansallinen Kulttuurisäätiö until 2007). Toivo Think Tank is a foundation without individual members or member associations and is run by a board of six members from the National Coalition Party, universities and media. The think tank is responsible for organizing the research activities of the party. The yearly research program includes a member satisfaction survey, individual research studies ordered by party or parliamentary group and a joint research of the five largest parties on government success, citizens concerns, image of the party leaders and demographics of support for different political parties. Toivo publishes annually two to four research reports and several other policy papers and expert articles in the website on topics described in the annual action plan approved by the ministry of education and culture. Planning processes of publications usually contain work shops and conferences to release the results.«
