About the foundation

Our story began with the official registration at the Ministry of Interior on December 6, 2013 with a vision to be a strong and reliable partner. We were founded by our mother company Kia Motors Slovakia as a successor of corporate social responsibility in the Zilina region. While Kia wants to be a lifelong partner not only in the automotive industry, but also beyond these borders. Kia Foundation is therefore perceived as a tool for possibility of enriching the communities in which it operates.

Our ambition is not only to distribute the financial resources but we also want to support any changes that make our surroundings a better place to live in together. Kia Foundation´s vision is to be a strong, flexible, transparent, open and trustworthy partner in the fields where our assistance and help will be beneficial and welcome.

Our motto is – Let´s move the world together!
