What is the Fundraising Foundation
The RFSL Fundraising Foundation was founded to raise funds for the work for LGBTQI individual’s rights in Sweden and the world. You yourself decide how much to donate – we make sure that every Swedish crown makes a difference.
RFSL’s Fundraising Foundation has a so called 90-account. That means that the organisation is overseen by Svensk Insamlingskontroll apart from the review made by RFSL’s Fundraising Foundation’s authorized accountants. Svensk Insamlingskontroll manage all seven digit Plusgiro-accounts that start with 90.
Only organisations approved by Svensk Insamlingskontroll have the right to a 90-account. For the donor, this is reassurance that the fundraising is handled responsibly and that the money end up where they’re supposed to. The rule is that at least 75 percent of the donations should be used in the core activity. A maximum of 25 percent can be used for administration.

What does the Fundraising Foundation do?
The foundation supports initiatives in Sweden and the world to promote LGBTQI individuals’ rights. This is done by partly financing long term capacity building projects for the LGBTQI movement in different parts of the world, for example South Africa and Indonesia. Other things that the Foundation does is to contribute to building an “emergency fund” for situations where LGBTQ activists have to be hastily evacuated, get support for legal fees etc.
In Sweden the Foundation works with financing social and legal support to LGBTQ refugees and newly arrived. The Foundation also cooperates with support organisations for young LGBTQ individuals through the project hbtqkojan.
RFSL’s Fundraising Foundation was founded by RFSL’s Board of Trustees and is registered since 2013. The purpose is to raise money for the work for homosexuals’, bisexuals’ and trans people’s rights in Sweden and internationally through international development cooperations, aid, opinion forming, spreading of information and education. The Foundation follows the rules that apply to a 90-account.
All decisions about distributing the money from the Foundation are made by Fundraising Foundation’s board. The Foundation follows the rules that apply to a 90-account.
