We believe in the power of partnerships to drive social impact. Here, you’ll find information on our partners and opportunities for collaboration & special funding initiatives.
Implemented jointly by Yayasan Hasanah and Ministry of Finance, the HSEF was set up to empower and support the organisational development of social enterprises (SEs) and social innovators.
The funding amounts are divided into 3 categories of up to RM 100,000, RM 250,000 and RM 500,000 respectively and offered through two pathways – seeding path, or growth and scale path.
In 2022, RM 4.64 mil was approved to 32 SEs, allowing them to sustain their programmes, harnessing their capability to fundraise, increasing public awareness in social innovation, and scaling their innovation solutions for positive social and/or environmental outcomes.
Reintroduced as GLIC/GLC Demi Rakyat dan Negara (GDRN) in March 2022, GDRN now encompasses 3 impact areas, namely, Jalinan Ilmu, Jalinan Sejahtera, and Jalinan Kemanusiaan.
As a coalition of Government-Linked Investment Companies (GLIC) and Government-Linked Companies (GLC), GDRN’s scope expansion is a reflection of the goal to deliver coordinated social impact at scale.
While each GDRN member has specific mandates and focus areas according to their companies’ aspirations, we share our data, knowledge, and experience with each other as a collective.
In 2022 alone, 13 GDRN members reported a total of RM38.7 million for humanitarian initiatives alone, benefitting 38,442 families, 56,630 individuals, and 30 institutions.
First established in 2014 as a disaster relief and response network, at present, Yayasan Hasanah and Yayasan TM are the co-Secretariat overseeing GDRN’s growing role in supporting the country and its people.
Under Belanjawan 2021 and Initiative 6 of the PERMAI package, RM25 million was allocated by the government to Government-Linked Companies (GLC) and Government-Linked Investment Companies (GLIC) Disaster Response Network (as it was known then). The allocation came in the form of grants matching the donations, immediate humanitarian response, and social initiatives by said GLCs and GLICs.
A total of RM2.36 mil from 3 GDRN members reached 37 implementing partners, 8,355 families, 9,683 individuals and 9 institutions.
As part of the secretariat, Hasanah managed the grant application and funds distribution in consultation with MOF, with all disbursements taking place in 2021 (amounting to RM 16.85 mil) and final reporting concluding in June 2022.
Appointed as Project Manager, Yayasan Hasanah was entrusted in overseeing the overall disbursement of PEMERKASA, a pilot cash-aid programme by the Ministry of Finance (MOF) targeting to benefit poor families and families living in extreme poverty in urban areas nationwide.
As of the reporting period in 2022, RM 39.54 mil was utilised to provide food aid to 445 families, disbursed to MyKasih Foundation, the implementation partner identified by MOF.
For three months, individuals could purchase necessary rations from partner grocery stores using the RM100 per month received in their MyKad. A unique barcode-scanning at the point-of-sale ensures that only approved essential food items were purchased, safeguarding against abuse of the programme.
Ensuing from recommendations by Majlis Pemulihan Negara, a committee formed to tackle post-pandemic economic recovery for the country. Thus, in the “Emergency Food Relief and Achieving Food Security / Sovereignty for the Vulnerable” programme, the Ministry of Finance approved RM 2 mil to be allocated to selected NGOs to carry out emergency food relief and food security programmes.From that amount, RM 1.87 mil went to sustaining 10,316 familes and 4,486 individuals nationwide. Hasanah’s role in this zero-hunger initiative was as project manager, overseeing matters such as overall coordination, governance, management and disbursement of funds, monitoring distribution of aid, and final reporting by Yayasan Chow Kit as the implementation partner of the programme.
A total of RM2.19 mil went to funding various forms of aid such as food baskets, post-flood hygiene and cleaning kits, maternity and childcare support packs, medication, school uniforms and repair works.
In December, relief kits reached 1,000 families affected by the monsoon floods in Kelantan and Terengganu – a collaboration between Hasanah and Mydin Malaysia. Distribution of the aid amounting to RM181,000 to affected zones was made possible by Hasanah’s Greenlane Partner, Malaysian Relief Agency (MRA) and Hasanah’s core partners, Persatuan Gabungan Bantuan Bencana NGO (BBNGO), who were already swiftly on the ground rendering help. Two medical teams were also deployed in both states.
In 2022, Hasanah through its partners has deployed:
RM267,500 in sponsorship was disbursed to 25 projects such as support to Yayasan Sejahtera for the International Day for Eradication of Poverty 2022 (IDEP 2022) Conference. While this type of monetary assistance is one-off in nature, the events funded fall within the ambit of Hasanah’s impact areas and play a role in furthering long-term, sustainable impact.
This small-scale, needs-based fund offers additional support to existing partners on a case-by-case basis. Capped at RM10,000, it aims to benefit the communities living in areas where said partners’ projects are taking place. For instance, Global Environment Centre received funding to conduct repair works on the prayer area and community hall facilities utilised by the Orang Asal villagers in Kampung Bukit Cheding in Ulu Langat, Selangor.
