It’s not who we are or what we can do.
It’s how we can build a greater Malaysia, hand in hand with our partners.

Yayasan Hasanah (Hasanah) was born as an independent grant-making foundation on 1 July 2015, with the aim of creating greater impact that complements Khazanah’s efforts of developing Malaysia into a globally competitive nation.

As a convenor, collaborator, and catalyst of change, Hasanah focuses on the country’s pressing community and social issues, bringing together policymakers, civil society organisations, corporations, and local communities to enable collective impact for the people and environment.

At present, we contribute to 15 of the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), through solutions that empower communities, encourage social inclusivity, and improve the environment. From eradicating child poverty through education to ensuring the preservation of our majestic forests and celebrating the arts and our unique cultural heritage, we are committed to making a real difference through our values of empowerment, trust, integrity, inclusiveness, connectedness, and authenticity.

More than dollars and cents

While we offer grants for the most viable initiatives, our efforts do not stop there. Beyond dollars and cents, we continue to facilitate an ecosystem of transformation, working in collaboration with multiple stakeholders; infusing the spirit of advocacy and building capacity in the areas we focus on.

Impact and sustainability are key in driving this vision. Thus, we feel strongly about supporting long-term projects through every stage of its development. Throughout the journey, we help design, implement, and scale assessment models that will deliver the greatest impact in realising our shared vision.

Collectively and collaboratively, we hope to shift the needle of social and community reform towards a better Malaysia.
