In 2010, in conjunction with the MAYBANK GROUP'S 50th anniversary, Maybank Foundation was inaugurated as the main vehicle for corporate responsibility across MAYBANK GROUP. Maybank Foundation’s mandate is to identify programmes that will have the most tangible and sustainable results - efforts that will bring measurable change over the long term.
Through strategic partnerships with local stakeholders and NGOs, the Foundation’s focus is to enhance quality of life for all, especially the less fortunate, irrespective of race, gender, or creed and to deliver long-term value for the environment by being the region’s most impactful corporate citizen.
Maybank Foundation’s predecessor, Tabung Kebajikan Kumpulan Maybank (TKKM), was a trust fund set up in 1990 in order to provide medical assistance and social welfare support to the community. Over the years, it grew to include sustainable economic and community development, arts and culture, and environmental conservation.
Six flagship programmes and numerous others were developed based on Maybank Foundation’s new strategic direction. The programmes have been designed to be regional, scalable and target driven. They will be tracked systematically to provide evidence on the long-term results.
The focus is to expand our impact across the region where Maybank operates, touching lives wherever we can to empower communities to build a better future, both for present and future generations.
