Mazda Announces Recipients of 2015 ‘Drive for Good’ Funding
Mazda’s Drive for Good campaign is returning once again to raise money for non-profit organizations. As in previous years, customers who purchase or lease a new Mazda during the event (from November 23rd through January 4th) will be able to designate $150 to go toward one of four national nonprofits or 46 local organizations. The only thing that remained was to name which organizations would receive funding.

And now, Mazda has announced the lucky non-profits. On a national scale, Mazda has chosen St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, the American Red Cross, the American Heart Association, and the Mazda Foundation. Other local organizations are divided by region and are a diverse group, including several local Make-a-Wish foundations, a few Ronald McDonald House Charities, pet rescue organizations, autism societies, children’s hospitals, and food banks.

The event involves a multi-faceted campaign, including a 30-second television spotlight of Mazda’s own volunteers that give back year-round, a 90-second piece on Mazda’s charitable efforts in past years, and a Mazda Drive for Good webpage to let consumers track the charity effort’s progress.
