Mazda Drive for Good Campaign

The Mazda Drive for Good campaign is a yearly charitable event organized by Mazda that lets you be an active participant in giving back to your community. By simply taking a Mazda vehicle out for a test drive at a Mazda dealership this winter, you earn an hour of community service from the Mazda team for a cause in your community.


Plus, if you buy a Mazda during the Drive for Good event, Mazda will donate $150 to the charity of your choice. The Mazda Drive for Good campaign will enjoy its fifth consecutive year this winter, and over the last four years, it has led to over 260,000 hours of community service and raised more than $15 million.


Some of the most popular charities you can donate to through Mazda are St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, the American Heart Association, and the Mazda Foundation, but the full list has over 40 charities, largely focused on medical research and helping children.


Mazda Drive for Good’s partnership with NBCUniversal, which has been in effect since 2014, has let the foundation reach many more communities, even if they don’t have a large volunteer force or a nearby Mazda dealership.


At Wantagh Mazda, we’re proud to be part of an organization that is so dedicated to giving back. Give us a call to find out more about the Mazda Drive for Good campaign and our participation in it!

Mazda Drive For Good

Mazda believes it is important to give back to the communities that give so much to them, so the Japanese carmaker is donating over $4.9 million to select charities thanks to its Mazda Drive for Good event. Along with this large donation, Mazda employees and dealers are also contributing over 66,000 charitable service hours in 2015, which shows an increase of 17.5 percent in volunteer hours compared to 2014.

“We could not have asked for better results from this year’s Mazda Drive for Good event,” said Jim O’Sullivan, president and CEO, MNAO. “The growth seen in monetary donations and volunteer service hours are a welcomed increase. It allows Mazda’s employees, dealers and business partners to lend a helping hand and participate in constructive and engaging ways, helping their community throughout the year.”

The Mazda Drive for Good event began November 21, 2014 and ran until January 2, 2015. For every Mazda vehicle purchased, Mazda donated $150 to one of four national or 44 local charities. Customers could decide what charity to donate to depending on their preferences.

Not only is Mazda a philanthropist, but the brand also has plenty of great cars, too. Stop in to Wantagh Mazda today to see what we are talking about!
