Eighteen Norwegian immigrants founded the Sons of Norway as a fraternal benefit society on January 16, 1895 in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Mission of the Sons of Norway
The present mission of Sons of Norway has not veered away from the purposes and goals of its Founding Fathers. Just like in the beginning, its mission is to promote Norwegian traditions and fraternal fellowship, promote and preserve the heritage and culture of Norway, celebrate its relationship with other Nordic countries, and offer financial assistance to Sons of Norway members and their families.
