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?

A Note from Gregory B. Smith, SHF's Executive Director:

Our sincere thanks to all who joined us recently for the Nordic Business After Hours at Fullerton Winery on the 16th; the Members Reception at Blue Sky Gallery for acclaimed Finnish photographer Pentti Sammallahti on the 23rd; and at the Beaverton International Festival on the 25th! As you can see, activities are ramping up rapidly and there will be much more exciting news in the near future, so please stay tuned! 

A special "thank you" to Erik, Susanna and Alex Fullerton for hosting our Business After Hours at the SE Wine Collective. It is a great spot for gathering, and their hospitality was wonderful. (Look for another special event there in the near future). And to Gallery Executive Director Todd Tubutis and Board Chair Chris Rauschenberg at Blue Sky. Their presentation of Pentti's work was outstanding, and the event drew a great crowd.
