Help for Kids Initiative
About Hyundai Help for Kids.
Imagine a world without childhood diseases. A world where every sick child no matter where they live gets the treatment they need, where families can afford to be there to support their kids, day and night. 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 overwhelmingly successful and nationally recognised as a force for good, and in just eight years it has donated more than $10 million to many charitable organisations. We celebrate just some of those incredible moments here.
The help we bring.
Hyundai Help for Kids supports a range of organisations who’s sole purpose is to help kids in need.
Every time a new vehicle is sold in Australia, customers and owners are joining Hyundai and Hyundai Dealers to raise funds for children who need it most.
From transfers to and from specialist treatment to airport pick-ups and event transfers we offer our partners free access to vehicles to support their essential services.
We can bring help to our partners in other ways too. From money can't buy experiences to awareness and marketing via our channels we do everything we can to promote their cause.
Clear and tangible outcomes.
Children are at the heart of everything we do. Our vital funding to grant recipients has touched the lives of over 100,000 children from respite care and cancer research to education and family support since we started in 2014.
Thank you for choosing Hyundai.
Hyundai Help for Kids comes standard with every vehicle purchased. The families of our partners all over Australia can’t thank you enough for the funds that you have helped to raise to provide these essential services.
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 Assistancew and Reserach 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.
How much money does Hyundai Help for Kids expect to raise, and over what period are they measuring themselves to gauge success?
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 an d assessed by Hyundai Help for Kids management and the CSR committee, with assistance from Hyundai Motor Company Australia and Hyundai Dealers across Australia.
