Apart from receiving financial donations from corporate bodies and charitable individuals, BAKTI has also been organizing a wide variety of fund raising activities throughout the years. Among the types of activities are:

Festival

The first charity festival, held in 1977, raised RM50,000 and was distributed to 10 charities in Selangor and Kuala Lumpur.

Walkathon

This activity involving members and their families was first held in 1980 on the grounds of the Malaysian Parliament. Proceeds from the event were donated to children who needed heart surgery. More walkathons were held in 1981, 1984, 1986 and 1996

Film premiere

Film premieres have also raised funds for BAKTI. The first premiere of the film Star Wars was held in 1978 at the Cathay Cinema Kuala Lumpur and had managed to raise money for 14 welfare homes in each state.

Dinner

As awareness of BAKTI’s reputation grew, more funds were needed. To meet these demands, BAKTI members had unanimously agreed that a fund raising dinner would be the most effective fund raising activity. The first dinner was held in 1982 at the Hilton Kuala Lumpur while the second dinner was held in 1988 at the Putra World Trade Centre. Where a total of 100 tables were sold.

In November 2011, a dinner was held at the Mandarin Oriental Kuala Lumpur raising RM4.2 Million and a further USD3.54 Million.
