The Mazda Foundation

Since 1972, Mazda has been offering New Zealanders vehicles that are a little out of the ordinary. During that time, as well as meeting the nation’s everyday motoring needs, we have introduced an array of innovative and lifestyle vehicles that today are characterized by technological innovation and superb quality.

Mazda through this time has also participated in the community beyond the traditional role of an automotive organization, fostering a spirit of community involvement. It is from this that the concept of the Mazda Foundation has emerged.

The Mazda Foundation Trust was established in 2005 as a public charitable trust to provide assistance to a broad cross–section of worthy charitable entities, causes and individuals throughout New Zealand that qualify for income tax deductibility.

As the Trust has been established for charitable purposes, the Mazda Foundation qualifies for a charitable status tax exemption pursuant to Sections CB 4(1)(c), CB 4(1)(e) and CI(m) of the Income Tax Act 1994.
