To commemorate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Hyundai made a $1 Million donation to the Martin Luther King Jr. National Memorial Project Foundation. The permanent memorial to Dr. King can be seen at the National Mall in Washington, DC. The memorial opened to the public on August 22, 2011, after more than 20 years of fundraising, planning, and construction. Dr King is only the fourth non-President to memorialize on the National Mall.
Hyundai continues to be a partner with the MLK Memorial Project Foundation. In January 2013, Hyundai sponsored the MLK Foundation’s recent Presidential Inauguration actives.
