Abstract

This study explores the extent of media facilitates Malaysian Social Welfare Non-Governmental Organizations (SWNGOs) to acquire funding. Malaysian SWNGOs rely on external funding to support their operation, but this external funding is uncertain and limited. The number of registered Malaysian NGOs has increased recently. For this reason, acquiring funding has become more challenging for Malaysian SWNGOs. Through semi-structured interviews with 6 Malaysian SWNGOs, the study found that television is a dominant media platform to acquire funding. Also, an official website, Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp were prominent platforms for most Malaysian SWNGO to acquire funding.

Keywords: Media; Funding; Malaysian SWNGO
