Dana KCM was created in 2010 unplanned. Several philanthropists and generous individuals contributed some amount of money to students of Kelas Tuisyen Cikgu Mariyam who wish to continue their studies after SPM. After much deliberations with the management of Dana KCM, a fund was set up, designed to help SPM students who wish to pursue their studies at private higher education institutions.
