October is Foundation Month! This is a time to celebrate the Sons of Norway Foundation and the value it brings to our members and their communities. During Foundation Month we ask that you find a way to support the Foundation, whether through a personal donation or by collaborating with your lodge. Thanks to the generosity of Sons of Norway leadership, any gift to the Foundation between October 1 and the end of the year will be MATCHED, up to $50,000.
The Sons of Norway Foundation was founded in 1966 to support our members and now offers a wide range of scholarships and grants focused on promoting Norwegian heritage and culture, providing cross-cultural educational opportunities to our members, and supporting our communities through humanitarian aid. The Foundation gives out over $130,000 in grants and scholarships every year, but we need the support of members like you! Our scholarships and grants can be a lifeline for students, families and lodges, and the economic effects caused by COVID-19 only increase the need for these vital opportunities.
Be a part of something bigger with the Sons of Norway Foundation—support our members and communities by donating today! Visit sofn.com/give2020 to learn more, donate or see different ways your lodge can get involved (virtually!) in Foundation Month.
