Welcome to the Hyundai Motor Chung Mong-Koo Foundation Website
Greetings! I’m Okyu Kwon,
chairman of the Hyundai Motor Chung Mong-Koo Foundation.
The Hyundai Motor Chung Mong-Koo Foundation has been pursuing
a new direction as a "global foundation leading social change and
innovation" since 2020. It is driving three major future innovation platform projects, including the Talent Platform, which nurtures future leaders for a sustainable society; the Space Platform, which facilitates communication and collaboration with future generations; and the Knowledge Platform,
which focuses on discovering and researching innovative solutions to
The representative project of the Talent Platform is the "Hyundai Motor
Chung Mong-Koo Scholarship." Over the course of five years from 2021,
the goal of the platform is to nurture 1,100 future talents in six fields:
global affairs, future industries, international cooperation,
social innovation, arts and culture, and social integration.
The Space Platform, known as "OnDream Society," was established in the Page Myeongdong Building in front of Myeongdong Cathedral. With an
environmentally-friendly space design, it serves as community space for
engaging with future generations. It's aim is to address environmental and
social issues and foster eco-friendly social ventures.
The Knowledge Platform focuses on innovative research to address
global social issues. It's aim is to develop practical solutions and share
them with the public through the Future Knowledge Forum, with a focus
on significant issues in future society and their solutions.
The Hyundai Motor Chung Mong-Koo Foundation has been walking step by step towards its vision of becoming a "global foundation leading social change and innovation." In line with the founder's intention to "care for
those in difficult circumstances and provide a solid ladder of hope,"
the foundation has been sincerely carrying out social contribution
programs. These include providing scholarships for children of
firefighters, police officers, and public officials, supporting medical
expenses for low-income orphaned children, and implementing
the OnDream School program, which visits rural elementary schools.
Moving forward, the Hyundai Motor Chung Mong-Koo Foundation will
continue to make every effort to build a sustainable society in
collaboration with future generations. It will strive to be a trusted
foundation, earning the trust and love of the public.
