$1,000,000 toward supporting Swedishness!

The Enduring Designs of Josef Frank exhibit presented at the American Swedish Institute in Minneapolis and the Nordic Heritage Museum in Seattle received support from SCA.

WOW! Such an achievement! For the 2017 grant cycle, SCA made $43,078 in grants to Swedish America, bringing the total amount awarded to exactly $1,000,000! We hope you join us as we celebrate this important milestone!

Since 1975, Swedish Council of America has proudly made 388 grants to museums, schools, language camps, art galleries, archives, theaters, libraries, musical groups, lodges, festivals, language camps, genealogical societies and dozens of other organizations, all with an eye to preserving Swedish heritage or promoting Swedish culture to an ever-wider audience. These SCA Grants totaling $1,000,000 USD went to 175 organizations in 33 states or provinces in the United States, Canada or Sweden.

A complete list of every project supported by SCA Grants in the past decade and a half is available at the bottom of this page. Take a moment to review the variety and breadth of grants made and you surely will be impressed. SCA Grants have truly made a difference all across Swedish America!
