Verið velkomin!




Founded on January 30, 1925, The Icelandic Hekla Club is the oldest continuously meeting Icelandic Organization in the Untied States.  In 2015 we celebrated 90 years of bringing women and Iceland together.  

Hekla is organized for educational, cultural and charitable purposes, which are carried out through regular meetings and special events.  These purposes include:

1. To educate the public through the promotion of Icelandic educational and cultural opportunities.

2.  To cooperate and/or participate, wherever possible, in activities that support and promote Icelandic social, educational, and cultural themes.

3.  To promote fellowship among members and involve the Icelandic community in cooperative endeavors that support connections between Minnesota and Iceland.

4.  To provide a means of reaching those of Icelandic descent and those interested in Iceland.

In support of these goals, the Hekla Club supports the Val Björnson Icelandic Exchange Scholarship between the University of Minnesota and Haskóli Íslands (University of Iceland) .

On August 26, 2016 Icelandic Hekla Club was granted 501(c)(3) non-profit public charity status. under the United States Internal Revenue Code, retroactive to December 2010.
