Establishment of the Board

The idea and the need for PERMIM to have its own Education Fund was mooted in 1996 by then President Tuan Sahul Hameed and after almost 2 years of concerted effort the Board was established on Sunday, 2 November 1998, the day when the Board was officially launched at the Maktab Kejasama, Petaling Jaya. The rules and regulations and general guidelines pertaining to the Trust Deed were executed between the Trustees (5) and PERMIM, on 2 November 1997 itself


The establishment of the PERMIM Education Fund Board was very timely, given government's financial constraints at that time. Additionally there was an urgent need for the Board to serve to the community by mobilizing community's resources to help fund the needy students to complete higher studies and help in advancement of the community. PERMIM with its some 40 affiliates and branches spread across the country is well positioned to reach out and help the needy and deserving students.

Present state of financial position of the Board.

There is an urgent need to bring in more funds in the form of donations and contributions from members of the community. In order to sustain and continue to award financial assistance to deserving candidates in the immediate future, the Board needs contributions from generous members of the community. The Board as well as the community would certainly not like to see deserving students discontinue because of lack of funds.
