Chairman LEE Sang-chun of Sangroksoo Sharing Foundation donated KRW 150 million to YU (President CHOI Oe-chool) as development fund.


 At 11 a.m. on the 18th, Chairman LEE Sang-chun met with President CHOI Oe-chool and donated KRW 150 million, saying he wanted to contribute to development of the university. He visited the university in April last year, donated KRW 50 million, and came to the campus again after a year to support YU.


Sangroksoo Sharing Foundation was established in 2008 by LEE Sang-chun, CEO of SCL Co., Ltd., an automobile parts company, and has been supporting over 3,000 students in difficult circumstances with scholarships to provide them with educational opportunities. “Money is not the one to be earned for accumulation. Money should be spent in saving lives and in educating and cultivating great leaders of the country.” Based on this philosophy of Chairman LEE, he is practicing service and sharing in various fields, including children, youth, the disabled, and the underprivileged elderly.


Chairman LEE Sang-chun said, “When I was young, I studied hard due to poverty, and when I became an adult, I made a promise to help students and neighbors studying in difficult environments. As I promised at that time, I am realizing the dream I had when I was 15 by supporting students and the underprivileged through the foundation. My knowledge is that YU is a university that cultivates great talents that will lead common development of the global community. So, I visited the university again to help these students a little bit. I will continue to support and contribute to the development of YU.”


President CHOI Oe-chool of YU said, “I would like to express my sincere gratitude for visiting and supporting the school this year, just like last year. Chairman LEE Sang-chun, who has not only overcome numerous difficulties such as foreign exchange crisis and financial crisis and built a great company today, but has also personally practiced sharing and volunteering, is a good role model for students preparing for the future. Chairman LEE is a good role model for sharing and giving. We will make sure that his philosophy and deep meaning are well conveyed to the school members. We will do our best to develop Korea into a high-quality developed country and to nurture glocal talents who contribute to human society.


 Meanwhile, Chairman LEE Sang-chun became a member of “Cheonma Honors,” a major donor club at YU, by donating KRW 150 million this time, following 50 million won last year. Chunma Honors is a program that YU selects donors who have contributed greatly for development of the university and have great social recognition and influence among individuals and organizations (groups) that have donated over KRW 100 million for development funds and grants them the membership. YU plans to hold a ceremony to award Chairman LEE’s Cheonma Honors certification plaque at a future date.
