STAR Foundation, the charitable arm of Star Media Group, has launched its third annual cycle of Star Social Impact Grant (SSIG).
The programme offers grants to support the work of non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and social enterprises through impact-driven and sustainable projects to better the lives of local communities and the environment.
SSIG’s focus areas include community development, education, access to basic needs and infrastructure, environmental protection, as well as health and well-being.
Project implementation can take place over a 12-month period following grant disbursement.
Each grant size can be up to a maximum of RM50,000 depending on the complexity of the project.
Since 2021, Star Foundation has disbursed grants worth RM380,000 under SSIG for the implementation of projects bringing about long-term impacts to vulnerable groups across Malaysia.
NGOs and social enterprises with impactful project ideas are encouraged to submit their applications for the grant.
Interested applicants may find out more about the grant or submit their proposals and relevant supporting documentation via bit.ly/starsig from today (Feb 15) until April 2.
Since its inception in 2004, Star Foundation has donated a total of RM20.8mil to more than 360 social organisations.
It has also been running the Medical Fund Programme to help underprivileged individuals suffering from chronic illnesses, by sponsoring one-off medical treatment and care.
