The Sons of Norway Foundation Humanitarian Fund was established in 1997. We gratefully acknowledge the generosity and patronage of HRM, King Harald V of Norway in establishing and providing its’ initial funding. A contribution of $250 or more to the S/N Foundation Humanitarian Fund entitles the donor to a special edition medallion with the image of, HRM, King Harold V. The estate of Dr. Myrtle Beinhauer, a Sons of Norway member and educator, made a generous gift to the Foundation, which is also a major source for this funding.
