The Challenge

Nordic Northwest Board of Directors have collectively pledged $100,000 in support of Nordic Northwest's mission during this time of crisis with the Coronavirus Pandemic. One hundred percent of Board Members have contributed toward this initiative. The Board of Directors has committed this generous pledge in the hopes of challenging its membership to match their gift.

Like most cultural organizations, our industry has especially taken a financial impact during this crisis. Your financial support is needed more than ever.

Investment Impact

A total of $200,000 is needed to maintain operations and meet our mission. This investment will allow Nordic Northwest to evolve out of this crisis as we develop and offer cultural programming and find new ways for our inclusive community to connect in today's world. 


The Goal

The Board Challenge Campaign goal is to raise $200,000 by December 31, 2020.
