AirAsia Foundation’s grant-making is aimed at helping social enterprises scale up as a way of empowering communities and enabling them to build sustainable livelihoods.

The scope of your proposal should clearly define a new initiative or expansion of an existing initiative based on a set of targets achievable within a 12-month period. This may include investment needed to develop and market new products or services, train new community members or purchase new equipment for the planned expansion. Applications must clearly explain how the investment will enable the organisation to improve its income-generating capacity to fully or partially fund future activities.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.


  • Applicants must be registered and be based in ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations), and have a minimum two-year business track record.
  • NGOs looking to diversify funding sources through social enterprise are also welcomed to submit an application.
  • We will only fund organisations that are managed competently through accountability, cost-consciousness and effective leadership.


  • Our priority is to support smaller social enterprises that face funding constraints through conventional channels to grow their businesses.
  • To enable us to promote your social enterprises to our guests, we prioritise social enterprises that are based in a village/town/city that is within reasonable reach of an airport served by AirAsia in ASEAN.


  • We do not accept applications for organisations to finance operating cash flow or to fund purchase of land or buildings.
