Yayasan EMKAY (YE) was founded on 12th January 2001 by its founder, the late YBhg Tan Sri Datuk (Dr.) Haji Mustapha Kamal Bin Haji Abu Bakar, with a mission to continue their philanthropic work and help people in need, especially those living on the fringes of developed areas. Since its inception, YE has been dedicated to five major areas: education, health, religion, social welfare, and sports. However, YE will no longer contribute under the sports category due to the latest guidelines issued by the IRB.
After 22 years since its establishment, the YE has planned to review and discuss its vision, mission, objectives,and sustainability in accordance with current guidelines and policies. All board trustees and invited guestscontributed their ideas and perspectives for improving the foundation's new direction. One of the topicsdiscussed during the roundtable session was "Towards a Sustainable Future," which was continued in the 45thBoard of Trustees Meeting.
