Volunteer Information

The Nordic Legacy Circle recognizes supporters who have generously included the Nordic Heritage Museum in their estate plans. These planned gifts are essential to the future financial stability of the Museum, supporting the development of exhibits and programs and preserving a heritage that has shaped our community.

Our annual events generate funds that allow the Museum to provide programs, exhibitions, and community events that help share the Nordic spirit. But it’s only through the generous support of our partners that these events are possible. Thank you to the sponsors of the Nordic Heritage Museum! We couldn’t do it without you.
