Over the past 10 years, Motorola has donated to the Hope Project run by China Youth Development Foundation over $3.75 million. Now, Motorola makes another donation of $430.000 which will be used to build schools in rural China and train teachers. Ed Zander, chairman and CEO of Motorola, presented the check to Gu Xiaojin, secretary-general of China Youth Development Foundation.

"Motorola is firmly committed to being a good corporate citizen in communities where we do business. We see this as our responsibility to give back to communities while also helping those in need, especially in developing nations. It is remarkably satisfying to know that through donations such as this, along with the volunteer efforts by many of our employees, we can open doors to education and change the lives of many," said Ed Zander.

Motorola won the Best Corporate Citizenship Practice Award in China in 2004. It is the highest recognition to Motorola’s corporate citizenship effort and commitment to China. Since coming to China in 1987, Motorola has been instrumental in supporting higher education, offering disaster relief, sponsoring athletic programs and events and promoting environmental programs as well as helping China fight the SARS epidemic.
