Standard Chartered Foundation

Standard Chartered Foundation (SCF) was registered in 2005 under the Trustees Incorporation Act 1952 as the charity arm of Standard Chartered Bank Malaysia Berhad. SCF identifies and channels financial support and aid to deserving communities in Malaysia through community programmes based on three pillars: Youth, Health and Education.

One of the key initiatives carried out by SCF is the Intraocular Lens (IOL) project in partnership with the Ministry of Health that addresses avoidable blindness and promotes quality eye healthcare for underprivileged cataract patients. Since 2013, SCF has contributed MYR1.5 million to cover the costs of over 4,400 intraocular lenses required for cataract surgeries for underprivileged patients across Malaysia.

SCF also organises other initiatives aligned to the Foundation's pillars for the underprivileged community. In 2016, SCF brought joy to over 150 children from various homes such as Pertubuhan Anak-anak Yatim Al-Khair, Sivananda Home and Dignity for Children Foundation through various events and provision of items.

SCF provided financial aid to the Malaysian Association for the Blind (MAB) by upgrading their server to improve communication between the visually impaired community and the public. SCF also contributed back-to-school essentials such as uniforms, bags and stationeries to some 500 underprivileged children.
