History of Maybank Foundation

Since our foundation in Kuala Lumpur in 1960, Maybank has grown into an international brand. Today, we are Malaysia’s financial services leader with presence in 20 countries, operating from 2,200 offices, with a workforce of over 47,000.

Corporate responsibility is integral to the way we do business. For more than 50 years ago, we have believed in and actively practised ‘Putting People First’ – be it our customers, investors, partners, employee or even the community. To that end, in 1990, we set up the Tabung Kebajikan Kumpulan Maybank (TKKM), a trust fund through which Maybank could reach out to various communities to bring about social good.

Over the years, TKKM has evolved and grown. Beginning with medical and social welfare, the Fund soon found other ways in which it could contribute to positive change by nurturing sustainable economic and community development, heritage preservation and environment conservation.

In 2010, in conjunction with the Group’s 50th anniversary, the Maybank Foundation replaced TKKM as a beacon of hope for all those who are marginalised and disadvantaged. Today, as our new vehicle for Corporate Responsibility, the Maybank Foundation aims to expand our impact across the region, touching lives wherever we operate, and empowering communities to build a better future both for present and future generations.
