We have adopted a policy of initiating projects to benefit the community; nursing the projects to self sufficiency and then handing over the administration of the projects to the public maintaining a presence at committee level.


The aims and objectives of the foundation are to receive, raise, provide or donate funds for:

  1. The relief of suffering, distress or poverty

  2. The improvement of the living conditions or livelihood of the aged or disabled

  3. The provision of recreation facilities for the young and needy

  4. The operation of a Scholarship And Loan Fund for the benefit of students

  5. The granting of scholarships or loans to needy students

  6. To give out aid in any form to any charitable or worthwhile cause.


This policy has proved effective and beneficial to the public as it has enabled the Rotary Club of Penang to initiate worthy projects to meet the community’s needs as and when they arise without being tied down to any one project.

Gift of Life

Gift of Life is a crusade of the heart, touching children in peril. Together with Penang Adventist Hospital, Rotarians reach out to children who would die without cardiac surgery. Rotarians are pledged to saving the lives of children who could be ours, by returning them lives which should be theirs. This dynamic international programme is funded in partnership with New York Rotarians, matched by the Rotary Foundation Grants, subsidized by PAH’s non-profit surgical charges and generous gifts from the public and private sectors.
