The Norwegian Church's Endowment is one of the country's largest landowners in Norway, and owns properties such as rectories, vicarages, leasehold land and large forest properties.
The Norwegian Church's Endowment shall benefit the Church's objectives in pursuance of section 106 of the Constitution and in accordance with the Act relating to the Norwegian Church's Endowment. The Endowment very much resembles a foundation, in that it is mandated to conserve its assets and the return on these assets is to benefit specifically defined objectives.
The Endowment is managed by the administrative body for the Norwegian Church's Endowment and reports to the Ministry of Culture.
