At CIMB Islamic, we believe in giving back to the communities where we do business. It is our belief that corporate responsibility is a virtuous cycle, where our support helps to build and grow sustainable environments where everyone prospers. Reaffirming our commitment to this, we have supported initiatives such as the ‘Celik Muamalah’ program by Yayasan Dakwah Islamiah Malaysia to propagate knowledge on the conduct of commerce.
In Indonesia, we built 100 houses in Padang to help local villagers affected by the 2009 earthquake and supported the Red Crescent for flood relief efforts in Malaysia. We have also sponsored an Inter-University Quran Recital Competition, as well as supported ‘Program Bertalaqqi’, a systematic Al-Quran reading programme that involved sending young Malaysians to the Middle East to go through the certification process.
As an integral part of CIMB, all efforts are channelled through CIMB Foundation, one of ASEAN's leading CSR advocates. Established in November 2007, CIMB Foundation is tasked with strategising and implementing corporate responsibility initiatives, disbursing millions to various programmes related to community development, sports and education.
