Transparency Score

Of Malaysia's Foundations

(2023 Edition)

How transparent are foundations in Malaysia?

Our research focuses on foundations registered in Malaysia with a rating system that is based on the transparency, frequency and credibility of their communications to the public. We reviewed publicly-available data, information and reports, to grade the foundations based on Wiki Impact’s communication transparency rating system.

It is important to note that, based on current laws, foundations are not required to publicly disclose their annual, financial and impact reports. They are also not required to publicly disclose their board of directors, financial statements or amount dispersed. Some foundations prefer to be private in their giving.
