Hyundai Donates $30,000 to Local Nonprofits in Savannah to Continue Its Investment in Georgia


Hyundai Motor America announced its partnership with Georgia Southern University and the Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Coastal Empire, donating $15,000 to each organization. The support highlights Hyundai’s strong commitment to the state of Georgia, where the new Hyundai Motor Group Metaplant America is currently being built in Bryan County. Ceremonial checks were presented to the two organizations in Georgia.

“With our global vision of progress for humanity, Hyundai is proud to support organizations that are doing good for their community,” said Brandon Ramirez, director of corporate social responsibility and external relations at Hyundai Motor America. “Innovation opens the door to the future, and access to quality education is key to building tomorrow’s leaders. Additionally, community health programs are critical in filling unmet needs of families going through distressful times, such as during illness and disease.”

The donation to Georgia Southern University will help provide scholarships to undergraduate students in the science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields, as these areas of study are significant to innovation.

“Community partnerships play an important role in helping our students reach their full potential in the STEM fields,” said Julie Gerbsch, executive director of development at Georgia Southern University. “We are proud to be community partners with Hyundai Motor America.”

The donation to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Coastal Empire is part of Hyundai’s corporate social responsibility initiative, Hyundai Hope, which seeks to uplift children and families using supporting various health programs. This donation will help provide housing to young hospital patients and their families.

“When a child becomes seriously ill, the entire family suffers, particularly when the child is hospitalized or receives outpatient treatment far from home over an extended period,” said Billy Sorochak, chief executive officer of the Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Coastal Empire. “For the family of a hospitalized child, the Ronald McDonald House will be the most important House they will ever visit. Thanks to the generous support of Hyundai Motor America, through the Hyundai Hope initiative, so many children and families will receive both the care and comfort needed during these difficult times.”
