The capital on which the Knowledge Foundation’s work is based amounted to SEK 3.6 billion at the start in 1994. The original capital and its return in the form of dividends and capital appreciation is the only source of financing to cover the payments we disburse. Good management means our capital has grown to about SEK 10 billion (at the end of 2021). To date, SEK 11.1 billion has been paid out as project funding.
A Capital Committee is the decision-making body which manages the capital within the investment guidelines decided by the Board and has ultimate responsibility for ensuring that these guidelines are followed. Ethical and environmental guidelines are applied in capital management, and regular reviews are conducted to ensure a long-term sustainable approach.
