Gifts to the American Swedish Institute come from individuals, ASI members, family foundations and organizations, and are 100% tax-deductible. This support allows ASI to continue to present an exciting array of innovative programs, exhibits and events throughout the year, and helps meet emerging needs such as ongoing care for the Turnblad Mansion.

American Swedish Institute Community Fund

The American Swedish Institute is a gathering place for all people to share experiences around themes of culture, migration, the environment and the arts, informed by enduring links to Sweden. In the aftermath of the George Floyd killing, ASI joins other local arts and cultural organizations in seeking ways to address ongoing, underlying issues of inequality and racism. We particularly want to help strengthen service-oriented organizations or initiatives that might benefit ASI’s neighbors. So, ASI has established a Community Fund program to offer small to mid-sized grants intended to respond to emerging neighborhood needs. The fund will provide short-term stimulus money to initiatives that nurture diverse, vibrant relationships and promote collective well-being. Through the actions of the Fund, ASI seeks to support neighbors as they build, invigorate and re-imagine our shared community.
