Charities & Grants

The American Coordinating Council of Norway (ACCN) gives grants to member organizations. They can also nominate another organization to receive grants.


ACCN's giving back is based on the surplus of funds from each previous year's Independence Day. Every year the ACCN Board evaluates applications and votes on which organizations will receive grants.


2016's grant recipients were: Stiftelsen Oslo Barnemuseum, the American Lutheran Congregation, the Northern Lights Foundation, the American Women’s Club of Oslo, and Sons of Norway Christiania Lodge 8-004.


On behalf of ACCN I would like to extend a very special thank you to all of our sponsors, donors and to ALL of YOU who bought raffle tickets during the Independence Day celebration in the Frogner Park, and made it possible for us to grant these awards in 2016.
