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?

Join us on November 7 for a lecture featuring SHF Executive Director Greg Smith! Greg will walk us through the complexities of conceiving, developing, building and operating a nonprofit cultural center like the one currently under construction on Oleson Road. With planning still going on for the many kinds of programs that will be offered there, make some suggestions yourself to add to the mix! Friday Night Lectures are always free and open to the public, held at 7:30pm in Room 171 of Cramer Hall at Portland State University downtown.
