VERITAS Fund for Excellence in Design Education (VFE)

The VERITAS Fund for Excellence in Design Education (VFE) was founded in 2004 to further our core values of constant innovation, a commitment to design excellence and social responsibility towards the built environment. It is our hope that the Fund would encourage more design students and teachers to excel in various design fields and eventually contribute towards nation-building as architects, designers and educators.

The Fund will be channelled to assist students and teachers in local institutions through scholarships, awards, research grants, study stipends, community projects, study trips, design competitions, student seminars, student publications, etc. that will promote a culture of excellence and generally enhance public awareness and recognition of design.

Funding
The VERITAS Design Group has committed to set aside each year a percentage of our annual profit towards the Fund which is supplemented by contributions from some of VERITAS’ Clients and business associates.

CSR 2016
VERITAS Kickstarter Day 2016
The VERITAS Kickstarter Day was a fun-filled outdoor event which was held in conjunction with the Kuala Lumpur Car Free Morning by Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL). A total of about 100 VERITASians and their families participated in a cycling tour of KL, mapped out to enjoy the bi-monthly car-free morning. The event which took about two hours to cover, saw many VERITASians returning with fulfilled looks of a good work-out. Upon return to the starting point at the VERITAS Office at Bangunan Getah Asli, the team jived to the steps of Zumba. The merriment of this exercise set-off the mood for more dance steps and fun on the floor.
