We were honored to be part of a cocktail reception and dinner featuring the Swedish Ambassador to the USA, Karin Olofsdotter, at the Detroit Athletic Club on March 18, 2019.
The Detroit Swedish Foundation was one of several proud sponsors of this event.
Please contact us if you have additional pictures from this even that you'd like to see featured.
The Detroit Swedish Foundation recently approved a request to assist in funding a DVD player and library of Swedish movies on DVD at the Swedish American Club. These movies will allow greater exposure to Swedish culture through the cinematic experience. In order to maximize the reach of this effort the approved format chosen was DVD, which allows for the inclusion of English subtitles. For more information, please contact the Swedish Club.
The Board of Directors at the Detroit Swedish Foundation have unanimously approved a sponsorship, in partnership with the University of Michigan Germanic Languages and Literatures Department, for the Signe Karlström Lecture 2019.
Swedish food historian Professor Richard Karlström will discuss Swedish food culture from the Viking age to current times, exploring food techniques, dishes, regional foods and typical food products, with a focus on the 20th century to modern times in New Nordic Cuisine.

We are a nonprofit organization focused on celebrating and supporting Swedish culture and events. Partnering with local Swedish businesses and associations, we aim to financially support such amazing groups as the Oskar Stenmark Trio (pictured), who recently performed in Ferndale, to bring the feel of Sweden to the Detroit area for all to enjoy.
Through our collaboration with the Swedish American Chamber of Commerce - Detroit (SACC), we are able to financially assist Swedish-American businesses to thrive in our area. These businesses bring Swedish traditions, foods, products,and music to the metro Detroit area, making it a greater and more diverse place for current and future generations. (Svenska Cafe, Birmingham is pictured.)
Your generous gift will help us fund our mission to bring Swedish heritage to the Detroit Metro area. If you'd like to be more involved, or make a larger donation, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
