Today & Tomorrow Initiative
To be recognized as a regional resource for all things Scandinavian committed to preserving authentic traditions and culture while celebrating modern Scandinavian life, culture and business.
To operate as an efficient, effective and impactful permanent institution worthy of the confidence and trust of its donors, beneficiaries and partners.
To maintain an ongoing fund development program responsive to both organization and donor needs and to manage and distribute discretionary and restricted assets supporting current and future needs and in compliance with donor intent.
These goals will be realized through identified strategies and activities directly connected to mission, focused on improving our capacity and impact to preserve and promote Scandinavian heritage, and demonstrating to prospective friends and donors a confident and vibrant organization worthy of their philanthropic investment.
“The Høstfest-Heritage Foundation represents a connection to the future for Norsk Høstfest and the Scandinavian Heritage Association. For 38 years we have shared the joy of building awareness of our heritage, a beautiful cultural park and a world-class family–friendly Scandinavian festival. The Foundation’s mission, values and vision for the future support all the efforts of past donors and volunteers and present new opportunities for each of us to make a difference in the lives of those who cherish what is and those who will grow from learning more about our wonderful Scandinavian heritage.”
