The mission of Sons of Norway is to promote and preserve the heritage and culture of Norway, to celebrate our relationship with other Nordic Countries, and to provide quality insurance and financial products to our members.

Past – Present – Future
Celebrating 125 years of History

Sons of Norway was organized as a fraternal benefit society by 18 Norwegian immigrants in Minneapolis, Minnesota, on January 16, 1895.

The purposes and goals of the Founders were to protect members of Sons of Norway and their families from the financial hardships experienced during times of sickness or death in the family. Over time, the mission of Sons of Norway has expanded to include the preservation of Norwegian heritage and culture in our Society. We have grown since our beginning and are now the largest Norwegian organization outside Norway.

As we approach 2020 we are also approaching our 125th Anniversary of Sons of Norway, when those 18 Norwegian immigrants decided it was time to support one another.


They would be exceedingly proud of today’s members who collectively log hundreds of thousands of volunteer hours each year in service to their communities. They would be amazed at the scope of events held by Sons of Norway members who contribute to making their cities and towns vibrant places to live and gather. Astonishment would not be too strong a word to describe how the founders might react to knowing that in 2019 Sons of Norway is a $360 million life insurance company, and that the Sons of Norway Foundation, in operation for more than 50 years, partners with its generous donors to provide numerous grants, scholarships and camperships every year.
