MATCH TO BURN
CAMPAIGN FOR NORDIA HOUSE
Help burn the Nordia Northwest mortgage debt with a donation!
All donations are tax deductible and greatly appreciated.
Our community worked together to bring the dream of a cultural center to fruition to fulfill our mission. In 2015 Nordia House was completed and funding made possible by the tireless effort of many volunteers, hundreds of generous donors and a mortgage loan to complete construction.
In 2018 $1,750,000 in debt was remaining on the mortgage loan. Last year Nordic Northwest received a generous $1M gift from long-time supporters, Alf and Lili Gregerson toward the mortgage. Nordic Northwest’s Board President, Mike Nelson was so inspired by this gift that he donated $250,000 toward this effort at the end of 2018.
In 2019 this brought the remaining mortgage debt to $500,000. Inspired to eliminate all Nordia House debt Mike Nelson has generously made a matching gift challenge of $250,000 if Nordic Northwest can match his gift by December 31, 2019, thus eliminating all Nordia House debt. Mike invites you to join in helping to burn the mortgage.
We can all be proud of this beautiful center we have established. No it’s time through your support to meet this challenge and ensure Nordia House will continue to fulfill its purpose: to be an energizing hub of activity, helping our community grow and thrive.
Please give generously to this time limited gift challenge.
Your general donations help us achieve our goals of culture, education and community.

Having an estate sale? Found a bunad or hand-knit Icelandic sweater in your closet? We seasonally accept Nordic item donations to include in our yearly benefit sales. Please note we do not have a permanent collection, nor are we a museum. We do, however, have a twice yearly Nordic vintage sale, a Christmas market pop-up and a gala auction. Donated items are assessed and included in the sale where they are most likely to sell; all proceeds from these sales directly benefit NNW programs and events. We ask that all donated items be related to our mission; please call ahead before dropping off any items. No books please.
