Our arts, education, outreach, and environmental programs aim to further the good of humankind and society. Through these
efforts, we are helping future generations seed big dreams and providing minorities with the help they need, beyond simple finan-
cial assistance. To this end, we are :
1 Building and running next - generation cultural complexes and performance spaces tailored to the needs of local communities;
2 Providing outreach services for minority groups and promoting the arts;
3 Seeking to eradicate diseases and further medical and health services;
4 Helping build education and training centers and assisting other educational programs;
5 Supporting and running environmentally friendly social programs to help prevent climate change;
6 Working closely with state and regional governments on projects geared towards the above goals.
Working Together toward a Better World We are conducting social programs according to the following four overarching principles with a view to building a strong foundation for the well-being of humankind and social progress.
With great conviction and an unwavering can-do attitude, Mr. Chung Mong - Koo, the founder of the Hyundai Motor Chung Mong - Koo Foundation, has built a comprehensive business model for the Hyundai Motor Company, from raw materials to the finished automotive products, and established it as one of the world’s foremost corporate enterprises. In 2007, Mr. Chung followed up his professional success with the creation of our foundation, as a way of giving back to the
society that had made his success possible. Most notably, he allocated 500 billion won−the largest single - donor contribution in Korean history−in August 2011 to help fund low-income students and other educational causes.
Building a sound social framework is the highest priority in Mr. Chung’s philanthropic philosophy. In our age, when the value of human resources is being felt more acutely than ever, access to quality education for everyone is a prerequisite for the betterment of our society so that each and everyone may realize his or her dreams. In Mr. Chung’s view, “It is essential to raise a ladder of hope through education, and to strengthen our society’s health for years to come.” It is our hope that future generations will, calmly and steadfastly, with faith and confidence in their visions, refuse to lose hope in the face of challenges, taking them on creatively and eventually realizing their dreams. In the service of the philanthropic principles of the founder, and with a view to doing our part for the good of humankind and society, the Hyundai Motor Chung Mong - Koo Foundation is conducting a wide range of social programs designed to help the next generation dream great dreams and to give minorities the help they need, including education services, scholarships, medical assistance, and a functioning safety net, as well as training opportunities for young social entrepreneurs and programs to promote the arts and bridge cultural gaps.
Our foundation was started in November 2007 through an endowment by Mr. Chung Mong - Koo, Chairman and CEO of the Hyundai Motor Company. It was renamed the “Hyundai Motor Chung Mong - Koo Foundation” in December 2011, and has been actively engaged in initiatives to shape future leaders, assist minorities, and promote the arts.
As it looks forward to its ten - year anniversary, our foundation has been laboring tirelessly on all the programs defined by its goals and agenda. As part of our education efforts, our OnDream School teaches primary and secondary school age students nationwide through our innovative curricula aimed at building character and developing creativity. In addition, we have recently streamlined our selection procedure and adopted the latest technology for our scholarship management system. We actively support wide - ranging medical assistance projects, and prioritize assistance for minority groups including multicultural families, North Korean refugees, and foster children.
Finally, through our initiatives in the arts, such as our scholarship program and the OnDream Ensemble, we have been helping educate and mentor future artists and bringing the public increased access to cultural opportunities.
We still have much to achieve. We will continue to strive to become a benchmark and role model for other foundations and earn the public’s respect by fulfilling the goals we have set for all our budding programs. We humbly look to your watchful guidance as we move forward to a tomorrow filled with dreams and hope.
