CIMB Bank Launches CIMB Cares
02 April 2009

A Bridge Between the Public and NGOs

Kuala Lumpur: CIMB Bank today launched CIMB Cares, an online donation portal that enables the public to extend donations to charitable causes of their choice – in an easy, convenient and secure way.

With CIMB Cares, generous Malaysians can contribute a minimum of RM10 to any of the 23 Non-Government Organisations (NGOs) currently registered with the portal. All donations are made directly to the NGOs’ accounts via CIMB Clicks, the internet banking portal of CIMB Bank. As part of CIMB Bank’s continued corporate social responsibility (CSR) efforts, CIMB Cares focuses on bridging the gap between fund raising NGOs and donors among the public.

Dato’ Sri Nazir Razak, Group Chief Executive of CIMB Group and his wife, Datin Sri Azlina Aziz launched CIMB Cares today.

“The launch of CIMB Cares is timely as the current economic environment poses a challenging time for everyone, particularly NGOs that need money to fund their causes. This portal bridges the gap between donors and NGOs, and provides an easy and secure access for both parties to either donate or collect funds online,” said Nazir at the launch.

He encouraged more NGOs to come forward and register as a recipient with CIMB Cares and utilise this platform to generate awareness for their causes. “More often than not, NGOs and the causes they support are relatively unknown. We hope CIMB Cares will also help them garner more profile for the causes they support,” he added.

Nazir further explained that all registered NGOs would have gone through a due diligence and ‘interview’ process before being allowed to be a recipient on CIMB Cares.

CIMB Cares is available to the public. CIMB Bank customers can donate via their personal accounts on CIMB Clicks while customers of other banks can also participate through CIMB Clicks, facilitated by the MEPS FBX mechanism (debit payment from Internet Banking). This online donation portal is also equipped with auto debit and standing instructions for those who wish to donate regularly.

NGOs interested in signing up can contact officers at CIMB Bank’s Business Centres or the nearest CIMB Bank branch. For further information on CIMB Cares, visit www.cimbclicks.com.my or call our call centre at 1300 880 900.
