Samsung Hope for Children, the company's global corporate social responsibility platform, brings together the company, its retail partners, and a network of charitable organizations associated with renowned public figures. Over the course of its 12-year history, Samsung Hope for Children has raised more than $30 million through the gala that has helped more than 500 schools, hospitals, and community-based foundations throughout the U.S. One hundred percent of the gala proceeds and additional funds raised by Samsung throughout the year under its Hope for Children platform go directly to the charities.
"As the world's leading technology company, Samsung recognizes the roles technology and innovation play in making the future a brighter place for our children," said Y.K. Kim, President and CEO of Samsung Electronics North America. "Our goal is to help children gain better health and education and empower them to protect the planet on which they live."
