The Foundation’s purpose is to financially assist LGBT people throughout the world, as well as individuals, preferably in countries where LGBT persons are pursued and harassed by authorities, police and religious institutions. The Foundation’s means cannot go to organizations or individuals whose way of work is racist, anti-Semitic, homophobic, and misogynic or otherwise is in disregard of human rights.
Creating a better world in which all people have the same fundamental rights regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity or expression.
In order to more efficiently organize the collection and allocation of funds, in January 2014, the Mälarpaviljongen rainbow foundation was transformed to the foundation of Regnbågsfonden by Jonas Gardell, Arto Winter and Jon Voss. To the board, Kajsa Bergqvist and Robert Fredriksson was elected later. During the fall of 2016, the Rainbow Fund received a 90-account and thus is monitored by The Swedish Fundraising Control.
Our work is volunteering and our costs consist mostly of accounting fees.
