The main initial task of this statutory body was to improve the educational opportunities and facilities for the people of Sabah by promoting the establishment of a university college in Sabah, arranging the award of scholarships from various institutions to students of Sabah origin and making donations to schools in need of special assistance.

Beginning 1988, Yayasan Sabah began contributing to the improvement of the quality of life and the standard of living of the present and future generation of Sabahans and to bring about the desired change in revitalising the rural areas and transforming them into dynamic growth regions so that the people would rely less on the government and more on themselves to obtain what they want in promoting their own economic growth.

Yayasan Sabah has since undergone several phases of development and evolution.

The current objectives of Yayasan Sabah include uplifting the quality of education and educational facilities; relieving of poverty; and undertaking of activities which are benevolent & charitable in nature.
