Hasanah Special Grant 2024

Change happens when we work together


Long-lasting change cannot be achieved alone. Instead, it takes many people, groups and communities, working together towards a common goal. That is why our partners are important to us. With grants awarded once a year, we support programmes that are aligned to the following focus areas:


Community Development


Arts & Public Spaces



What We Look For

What We Do Not Support

On Funding

Depending on the duration and nature of each project, the grant amount we offer may vary. A maximum of RM2,500,000 can be awarded for projects spanning over three years, while pilot projects and shorter projects are eligible for a smaller amount.

We focus on achieving long-term impact. To this effect, we provide two types of funding:

  • Organisational Development Funding (ODF) aimed at strengthening our partners’ operations
  • Programme Management Funding (PMF) aimed at supporting the sustainability of initiatives

Beyond Funding

In addition to the grants awarded, we seek to support our partners in capacity building. Through mentorships, trainings, networking opportunities, best practice advice, and more, we provide them with the knowledge and skills to better strategise and lead, opening doors to greater impact in the long run.
