Kim Bum-soo prepares a plan for the 5th trillion won donation in-house meeting

Bum-soo Kim (pictured) Chairman of Kakao’s board of directors will sooner or later hold a meeting with members of the company to establish a specific plan for donating assets of KRW 5 trillion.

According to Kakao on the 15th, Chairman Kim is scheduled to hold a’Crew (Kakao members) meeting’ around the end of this month related to his social contribution plan.

Considering the Corona 19 situation, at this meeting held online, various ideas from executives and staff members regarding the donation of property that Chairman Kim recently revealed will be presented.

Chairman Kim said in a message to all employees of Kakao and its affiliates on the 8th in the New Year’s Kakao Talk message, “I made a pledge to donate more than half of my assets to solve social problems in the future.” Currently, Chairman Kim’s assets are expected to exceed 5 trillion won in total donations, as only the stock valuation exceeds 10 trillion won.

Inside and outside the industry, Chairman Kim is expected to give strength to education and start-up support, as Chairman Kim has revealed his views on social issues such as college entrance examinations and startup fostering.

It is expected that various plans such as donation of Kakao shares will be discussed at the conference. Until now, Kakao has engaged in various activities including the Kakao Impact Foundation, but since this property donation is on the personal level of Chairman Kim, a social contribution model such as the establishment of a separate foundation is predicted.

At Kakao’s internal meeting, which was usually held at 5 pm on Thursdays and was named’T500′, chairman Kim, executives, and service managers came out and discussed with members.
