Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Alabama(HMMA) will celebrate with the rest of the nation and the world during the week of August 24-28 as a series of historic events commemorate a permanent memorial to the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in the nation’s capitol. The $1 million donation was granted to support the Foundation’s mission of making the dream of a permanent memorial to Dr. King in the nation’s capital a reality.

Hyundai is committed to supporting projects, initiatives and activities that champion diversity, make a difference in communities across the country and contribute to the American cultural landscape. Hyundai’s support of the MLK National Memorial is preceded by a history of landmark donations, including making a contribution to the Korean

War Veterans Memorial – also on the Washington Mall – as well as providing relief effort support surrounding Hurricane Katrina and the tornadoes that affected the state of Alabama.

Hyundai’s $1 million donation places one of the nation’s fastest-growing automotive companies in the Leadership Donor category and positions Hyundai as a Platinum-level sponsor of the 2011 Martin Luther King, Jr. Dream Gala, the official celebratory event that will herald the Dedication of the MLK National Memorial.
