Albert Quie Fund - A letter from our Executive Director

Dear Friends of Norway House,

Governor Quie’s formula for successful living is simple and straightforward:  radical integrity, aggressive collaboration, and no excuses.  

On June 15, 2017, Norway House Board of Directors voted to name the Education Center in honor of Minnesota’s former Governor Al Quie in gratitude for his tireless efforts in serving Minnesota as it’s Governor, the United States as a Congressman, and Norway House as Honorary Chair of the Capital Campaign and his extraordinary efforts helping Norway House secure $5 million in bonding matching funds from the State of Minnesota. 

Norway House announced a $500,000 Challenge Grant campaign to help raise needed funds to build the Cultural Center adjacent to our existing Education Center!  The Quie Fund, generously launched by two anonymous Norway House supporters, matched every gift and pledge given between September 15 and December 31, 2017 dollar for dollar up to $500,000. 

Norway House has been built by many people making sacrificial gifts to make the dream of a Norwegian cultural center a reality.  We are halfway to our goal of completing a campus dedicated to preserving and celebrating our Norwegian heritage. The time is now to make your commitment, we need your help!
