"The Foundation is a non-profit organization the purpose of which is to support medical research primarily in the field of rheumatology and preferably at basic level. The need for funding for research into paediatric and adolescent rheumatology should be taken into particular consideration."

The start-up capital of the Foundation amounted to SEK 3 million in cash in 1986. A further two donations were to follow.
