A company with spirit

A company with spirit

  
  
     

At Mazda, we believe in the importance of two simple words: Zoom-Zoom. From the way our cars look, to the way they drive, these two words encapsulate everything we strive for. They represent excitement. They represent connection and the thrill of the drive.

They represent us, and they’re in everything we do.

      

    

MAZDA FOUNDATION

The Mazda Foundation was established in 2005 as a way for Mazda New Zealand to give back to the community and is based on the philosophy that a little goes a long way to making a difference.

The Foundation is funded through a contribution from the sale of every new Mazda in New Zealand, support from Mazda Dealers and via special fund raising activities as well as seed capital from Mazda Motor Corporation in Japan.

Each year, the Mazda Foundation runs three funding rounds with a particular focus on supporting causes related to education, the environment, and the arts. To date, more than $3.8 million has been gifted back to the community via groups and individuals across the country who have applied for funding.

TREEmendous EDUCATION PROGRAMME

The TREEmendous Education Programme, led by Ruud ‘the Bugman’ Kleinpaste, fosters environmental literacy – teaching children and the wider community about the importance of caring for the environment through hands on learning.

Each year, five winning schools receive a visit from Kleinpaste and Shark Scientist Dr Riley Elliott who educate students about the importance of caring for the environment.

Kleinpaste spends an additional day with teachers to discuss their individual school environments, identifying ways to use their outdoor areas as teaching tools, and provides guidance on a specific environmental project of their choice.

Each of the five winning schools will also receive a $1,000 cash grant as well as 200 native trees from TREES THAT COUNT.
