Our Commitment to Donor Privacy

Vesterheim Norwegian-American Museum respects the privacy of all our constituents. Your privacy is a priority and we go to great lengths to protect it.

The Vesterheim Annual Fund provides the infrastructure to allow us to serve our four most fundamental values, that we be welcoming, good stewards, authentic, and have integrity in everything we do. Additionally, Annual Fund covers critical behind-the-scenes expenses. Here are just a few annual fund projects in recent years:

  • Reshingling the steeple of Bethania church
  • Paint for Dayton House and the façade of the Cary building
  • Annual whitewashing of historic structures
  • Newly created artifact labels in textiles exhibition
  • Repairs to the roof of the Jacobson farm
  • After school programs for woodworking and textiles
  • Equipment purchases for staff and volunteers, like a laptop for the membership team to use to help at events
  • Humidity monitors in the galleries and collections storage areas
  • Work/study students and seasonal interns to support facilities
    upkeep, membership renewals, and exhibition construction
  • Administrative costs to loan objects to 26 institutions nationally

Volunteer at Vesterheim

Volunteers of all ages and abilities are involved at Vesterheim, and new volunteers are always welcome. There are great opportunities for people from many walks of life. You may be able to offer a specific skill or talent, but often, enthusiasm and a willingness to learn are the only requirements for a volunteer task!

In 2000, Vesterheim launched Kroneklubben or “Crown Club” for recognizing our most generous and devoted donors. This special recognition acknowledges accumulated lifetime gifts and is essential for helping us achieve our mission. Membership in Kroneklubben is a high honor starting at $10,000 up to $29,999 for the pewter level, followed by bronze at $30,000-99,999, next is silver with a range from $100,000-499,999, then gold at $500,000-999,000, and ultimately platinum for lifetime gifts of $1,000,000 and more.

Vesterheim chose this bridal crown, drawn and interpreted by Norwegian-American artist Elisabeth Maurland, to be a symbol for its Kroneklubben. For us too, the crown represents the ties that bind us as a community, linking us to each other and to those that come before and after us. Your gifts to Vesterheim enable the museum to sustain this mission, to share a cultural legacy, for years to come.

The crown illustrated on the Kronekluben award is a part of the Vesterheim collection. It helps to tell the story of living Norwegian-American heritage that Vesterheim embodies. Bridal crowns were treasures of a Norwegian community, shared by all for marking special occasions. Crowns, like this one from Trondheim, were keepsakes, used to literally and symbolically pass along traditions. Crowns connected generations: as an older woman placed the bridal crown on the head of a young woman, she linked generations, and members of the community, in a celebration of that heritage and tradition.

Just as the bridal crown is passed from one generation to another within a community, your support ensures that Vesterheim keeps its stories alive for tomorrow’s generations. We invite you to consider a gift or pledge to become a part of this prestigious group.

Vennskap Annual Fund Giving Society

Vennskap, Norwegian for “friendship,” is a giving society at Vesterheim that recognizes those who have generously given to the Vesterheim Annual Fund throughout the year.

The Vesterheim Annual Fund is the lifeblood of Vesterheim and the work that takes place each and every day to fulfill our mission. It is with deep appreciation that we recognize the following donors – our dear friends – whose gifts to the Vesterheim Annual Fund totaled $1,000 or more from January 1, 2023, to December 31, 2023.

Vennskap, which was established in 2021, solely recognizes and celebrates unrestricted gifts of cash and securities to the Vesterheim Annual Fund. Gifts-in-kind, campaign gifts, membership gifts, and endowment gifts are not counted toward Vennskap Society totals. Donors in Vennskap are recognized annually on our website, as well as during other special appreciation opportunities.

Monthly giving is a great way to be part of Vennskap each year. With a monthly gift to the Vesterheim Annual Fund of just $84, you will earn a place in the Vennskap Society!
