Established in 1987, the Sunway Education Group (SEG) is a dynamic group of 16 institutions, namely Sunway University and Sunway Colleges which are currently empowering approximately 30,000 students across the globe. SEG is owned and governed by the not-for-profit Jeffrey Cheah Foundation, the largest education-focused social enterprise in Malaysia.
In its objective to deliver quality higher education for all, Sunway University and Colleges are dedicated to producing ground-breaking research, providing holistic and innovative academic curriculum, and equipping the campuses with the essential facilities and environment to nurture the next generation of thinkers, leaders and doers.
Built on the foundation of giving back to society, the Philanthropy Office was established in 2018 as a dedicated avenue to further enhance the University and the College's philanthropic efforts. The Office focuses on areas of fundraising, gifting, endowment, sponsorship, partnership and donation. The gifts are utilised to support teaching, research, academic competitions, enhancing facilities, aid deserving students and public service missions.
The Philanthropy Office supports the University and College's commitment to establishing endowment funds and aims to provide a platform for alumni, parents, staff, corporations, individuals and friends to connect and contribute to the University or Colleges.
