About Hyundai Help for Kids.

Imagine a world without childhood diseases. A world where every child no matter where they live gets access to treatment they need, where families can afford to be there to support their kids, day and night. Where children are empowered by education, where families have access to innovative research outcomes and where they can laugh and love even in the most heartbreaking times.

We created Hyundai Help for Kids to support a range of not-for-profits to do more than just imagine. It comes standard with every* vehicle purchased.

Hyundai Help for Kids has gone on to be nationally recognised as a force for good, and in just eight years it has donated more than $10 million to many charitable organisations, working with their family of partners to put the extra in the ordinary.

We celebrate just some of those incredible moments here.

The help we bring.

Hyundai Help for Kids is an initiative of Hyundai and Hyundai Dealers to lend a helping hand to young Australians and their families by supporting a range of organisations whose sole purpose is to help kids in need in areas of Community, Medical & Vehicle assistance.

The Journey.

For some families it’s a long journey from research to after care and every stage in between. That’s why Hyundai Help for Kids has been here since 2014 to lend a helping hand when and where it’s needed most.

Diagnosis.
From the very beginning.

The job of diagnosing a disease – fully understanding the ways to spot it – is equally as important as treating it and curing it. That’s why we partner with the Kids Research Institute at Australia’s largest Children’s hospital at Westmead and Little Wings who fly sick or injured children and their families from remote areas into Sydney for specialised treatment.

Treatment through the tough times.

From clinical trials focused on finding and developing new treatments to providing a home away from home for sick children and their families during treatment, being there through the tough times is just what our partners do. That’s why we support Steven Walter Children’s Cancer Foundation and Ronald McDonald House Charities Australia. The Clown Doctors even bring much needed light hearted relief to help kids and their families through their journey.

Support through every stage.

For both the families and the children themselves knowing that they are not alone and there’s support looking out for them during their ordeal can have a huge impact on the outcome of their treatment. That’s why we partner with Make-a-wish Australia and use our corporate Sponsorships to bring money can’t buy experiences to kids all over Australia.

Empowerment through education.

Our partnerships go further still to cover as many areas of impact as we possibly can. Working with partners such as NextSense, formerly the Royal Institute for Deaf and Blind Children, and Australian Cervical Cancer Foundation, we go beyond the treatment into early intervention programs aimed at empowerment through education.

New beginnings.

Every year, hundreds of seriously ill children will be diagnosed with life-limiting conditions. Hyundai Help for Kids proudly supports the Child Life Therapy program at Bear Cottage to allow families facing this tragic time to make the most of every precious moment.

Common Hyundai Help for Kids questions.

Hyundai Help for Kids was created to allow Hyundai Motor Company Australia, in partnership with the Australian National Hyundai Dealer Network, to provide funds and/or non-monetary support for not-for-profit organisations associated with providing assistance to Australian children and their families.

Hyundai Dealers are franchise operations – they are not owned by Hyundai Motor Company Australia, but by separate independent companies. So it’s important to recognise each dealer’s contribution to this program.

No, this is a philanthropic fund supported entirely by the joint initiative of Hyundai Motor Company Australia and the Hyundai National Dealer Network.

Yes, the contribution is matched 1:1 by Hyundai Motor Company Australia and the National Hyundai Dealer Network.

The contribution per new Hyundai vehicle sold is $15.00 per vehicle*.

$7.50 from the National Hyundai Dealer Network.

Matched with $7.50 from Hyundai Motor Company Australia.

A CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) committee has been established to manage the Hyundai Help for Kids program.

The committee is made up of representatives from Hyundai’s National Dealer Network, Hyundai Motor Company Australia management and also Hyundai Motor Company Australia employees.

The CSR committee will determine if any additional organisations are to be added to the official Hyundai Help for Kids recipient list, using a quantitative evaluation tool developed for this program.

The decisions of the committee in relation to all grant applications are binding.

The fund will be operated by Hyundai Motor Company Australia.

Hyundai’s Australian philanthropic enterprise will offer financial grants to a range of organisations focused on delivering support to Australian youth and the families who support them.

There will be three main areas of focus for approved and selected grant recipients:

  • Community programs
  • Medical Assistance and Research programs
  • Vehicle Assistance programs

It is a joint 50:50 partnership between the National Hyundai Dealer Network and Hyundai Motor Company Australia, with funds raised via a joint contribution from each new Hyundai vehicle sold in Australia*

This contribution is then used to support and fund various approved organisations and their programs.

The Hyundai Help for Kids program will grow organically and we have not set any pre-determined targets for funding.

Based on yearly Hyundai Motor Company Australia sales, our expectation is that we will be able to make contributions in the vicinity of $1.5M (AUD) to Australian children’s causes every year through the Hyundai Help for Kids program.

The online application process has been rested for Hyundai Help for Kids grants.

Recipients will now be independently scouted and assessed by Hyundai Help for Kids management and the CSR committee, with assistance from Hyundai Motor Company Australia and Hyundai Dealers across Australia.
