Why Donate to ASI?

Your Contributions Matter

Diverse Programming

Your gifts ensure ASI’s rich programming continues to uplift Scandinavian folk arts and cultures and build connections between individuals in the community through opportunities to gather and empathize.

Community Impact

Contributions empower ASI to give back to its community through access programs, community partnerships, K-12 school programming, and more.

Historic Preservation

Gifts to ASI ensure that the Turnblad Mansion remains a gathering place for generations through proper preservation of this historic asset.

Culture and Heritage

Your gifts uplift the exploration of culture and heritage at ASI, inspiring us all to understand our own heritage in relation to others.

Tax Benefits

ASI is a 501c(3) non-profit. Donations to ASI are 100% tax-deductible.

By indicating your generous intent to make a planned gift, you join ASI’s Heritage Society, a group of ASI’s most dedicated friends whose support leaves a lasting legacy. Contributions may come in the form of bequests, trusts, or a variety of other planned gift options. ASI welcomes contributions from retirement plans, charitable remainder trusts, insurance policies, revocable or irrevocable trusts, and charitable gift annuities.

To inquire about ASI’s Heritage Society, please contact Christy Stolpestad, Director of Engagement, 612-870-3354

Many employers will match your gift to ASI, in some cases doubling or even tripling the impact of your contribution. ASI qualifies for most employee charitable giving match programs—please check with your employer for more details on guidelines. In many cases, your employer matching program will require ASI’s tax identification number: 41-0711603.
