Sports Sponsorship and Junior Development
Maybank sponsors events in golf, and promotes excellence among aspiring athletes. For us, sponsorship is also an important tool of corporate responsibility.
Our sponsorship has a strong fundraising element. Maybank Malaysian Open Golf has been an important platform since its introduction in 2006. The prestigious golf event draws extensive media attention locally and globally. Over the years, various fundraising initiatives have been implemented in conjunction with MMO and the proceeds have been donated to programmes and causes supported by Maybank Foundation.
The junior development programmes set in place to develop local talent have already started to achieve results. Our long-term objective is to see a home-grown golfer bring honour to the nation by competing successfully at world-class tournaments.
