CIMB Foundation

Established in 2007, CIMB Foundation is committed to creating long-term positive impact and championing community-related socio-economic and environmental issues.

CIMB Foundation was established in November 2007 to implement CIMB Group’s corporate social responsibility and philanthropic initiatives.

The foundation’s mission and strategic intent is to advance its stakeholders and society, through the creation of long-term positive impact that champions community-related socio-economic and environmental issues.

The foundation focuses on long-term programmes that bring sustainable community benefits under four pillars: health and community wellbeing, education, economic empowerment, and climate and environment.

These pillars are in alignment with three out of 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030.

Since its inception, CIMB Foundation has disbursed over RM180 million through more than 1,300 projects benefitting around 1 million people in the communities served by CIMB Group, making CIMB Foundation one of ASEAN’s leading CSR champions.
