Scandinavian Heritage Foundation

The Scandinavian Heritage Foundation is a non-profit organization focused on the five Nordic nations -- Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden. SHF is the catalyst in the Northwest for preserving authentic traditions and culture while celebrating modern Scandinavian life, culture and business. It is the "go to" regional resource for all things Scandinavian.


What's Happening in the Nordic Community?


We are so grateful to everyone who stepped up and helped our groundbreaking ceremony go so smoothly last week! We had a blast seeing our old office-house get demolished, and we hope everyone in attendance enjoyed learning a little bit more about SHF's past...and its exciting future!!
