Why Donate?

IDEAS believes in advocating for a better Malaysia by promoting good governance in government, establishing stronger anti-corruption frameworks and by creating a more business friendly environment for economic growth.
We promote these efforts on a non-partisan basis, as we feel that these issues go beyond partisanship – in fact these are issues that affect all Malaysians.

If you like the work that we do please support as financially. We cannot survive without your financial assistance. Your donations will go a long way in our ability to advance and promote a better Malaysia for all.

Donation refunds are given at the discretion of the management at IDEAS. If you have made an error in making your donation in the amount donated, please notify us within seven (7) working days of your donation with the proof of transaction made, by e-mailing us the details of your transaction (time, date, location and amount) to sanne@ideas.org.my as we need to do the required bank reconciliation before processing your refund request.
