- New Beginnings
If we can imagine a world where every child gets the care,
attention and treatment they need. Then together with our
family of partners we can make it happen.
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.
An advisory committee has been established to administer the Hyundai Help for Kids program. The committee consists of nine representatives from the Hyundai National Dealer Network and Hyundai Motor Company Australia.
John Hawkins is the Dealer Principal for Westpoint Autos (QLD).
Shaun Swift is the Dealer Principal for Stillwell Hyundai (SA) and a member of the National Hyundai Dealer Council.
David Booth OAM is the Dealer Principal for Booth’s Motor Group (NSW).
Gavin Donaldson is the Director of Sales for Hyundai Motor Company Australia.
Sarah Edwards is the General Manager Legal for Hyundai Motor Company Australia.
Bill Thomas is the General Manager, Corporate Affairs for Hyundai Motor Company Australia.
Ellenore Ibrahim is the CSR Manager for Hyundai Motor Company Australia.
Tatiana Suchecki is the PR and CSR Specialist for Hyundai Motor Company Australia.
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.
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:
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.
