Mazda to donate more than US$ 2.75-million to charity

Mazda North American Operations (MNAO) is donating US$ 2,751,700 to select charities as a result of its Mazda Drive for Good event. In addition to the monetary donation, Mazda employees and dealers across the nation also will donate a total of 56,435 charitable
service hours in 2014 through various local charitable service opportunities.

"Giving back to our communities is a part of who we are," said Jim O'Sullivan, President and CEO, MNAO. "At the time of the year when these amazing charities most needed help, Drive for Good gave us a way to help. And because real charity is more than just giving money, Drive for Good also allowed every Mazda associate to donate their time to help too."

Mazda's Drive for Good event ran from November 25, 2013 through January 2, 2014. For every new Mazda vehicle purchased during this time period, Mazda donated US$ 100 to one of four national, or 32 local, charities, with the choice of the charity being left up to the customer. Customers who bought a vehicle during the program period still have until January 31, 2014 to make their donation decision. In addition to the monetary donation, Mazda also donated an hour of charitable service for every test drive of a new Mazda vehicle taken during the Mazda Drive for Good event.
