The Endowment Fund

Outside view of the museum

A strong endowment fund is crucial to the Museum’s long-range plans. Donations to the Nordic Heritage Museum Endowment, known as “Heritage Gifts,” are an investment in the future excellence of the Museum. A Heritage Gift is added to the endowment principal for investment. The reliability of endowment income allows Nordic Museum to plan for the future by ensuring a steady stream of funding for its growing programs and services and the personnel to support them as the Museum grows.


Heritage Gifts provide stable funding for the Museum’s expenditures and affords donors the opportunity to make a lasting contribution. These resources help to ensure that the Museum will continue delivering its mission for generations to come.
