Step for Hasanah Grant Application


STEP 1: Eligibility Assessment

The grant application process starts with an Eligibility Assessment, which all applicants have to go through.

Before submitting your Eligibility Assessment, please be sure to have the following documentation ready:

  • Your certificate of Registration from either the Registrar of Companies or the Registrar of Societies or Social Enterprises registration with the Ministry of Entrepreneurship and Cooperatives Development (MECD) or the Trustees (Incorporation) Act 1952 or the Trade Licensing Ordinance (for Sabah & Sarawak)
  • Audited financial accounts or annual report submission to ROS or annual income tax submission to Inland Revenue Board for 2 consecutive years (over the past 3 years)

Our team will take 1-3 working days to determine if you are eligible.

STEP 2: Creating an Organisation Profile

If you are eligible, they will get in touch with a link to access their grant portal where you can start your application by first creating your Organisation’s Profile.  

STEP 3: Completing the Grant Application

Once you have created your Profile, you will be re-directed to a page where you can start your grant application. Each organisation may submit more than one grant application, but be sure to keep one application to one specific project.


Depending on the duration and nature of each project, the grant amount may vary. A maximum of RM2,500,000 can be awarded for projects spanning over three years, while pilot projects and shorter projects are eligible for a smaller amount.

The focus of Yayasan Hasanah is on achieving long-term impact. To this effect, they provide two types of funding:

1. Organisational Development Funding (ODF) aimed at strengthening our partners’ operations

2. Programme Management Funding (PMF) aimed at supporting the sustainability of initiatives



IIUM researchers may apply as co-applicants with other civil society organisations (CSOs) as the core applicant. You may also liaise with IIUM Entrepreneurship and Consultancies Sdn. Bhd (IECSB) if you are interested to apply for the grant.
