The Mazda Foundation’s aims and objectives include (but are not limited to) the provision of financial aid to funds, authorities and institutions which qualify for income tax deductibility for gifts and which provide:

  • assistance to young people through education and employment skills development, with particular emphasis on children from disadvantaged backgrounds.
  • assistance in the advancement of education and achievement of excellence at all levels in the community.
  • assistance in the development of technology, to help improve Australia’s international competitiveness.
  • assistance towards the maintenance and improvement of the natural environment.
  • assistance to address community needs identified by the Mazda Foundation from time to time.
  • assistance in research, feasibility, surveys and other background work in relation to any of the above aims and objectives.

Priority Areas

The Foundation periodically identifies a priority area of focus. The Foundation currently has two priority areas of focus, being:

  • Projects by community based organisations to support children with physical and/or mental disabilities or their carers, particularly projects seeking to address social isolation experienced by such children and their carers (For the avoidance of doubt, this Priority Area of Focus does not include research projects).
  • Projects by community based organisations to support elderly people suffering from mental disabilities (including dementia) or their carers, particularly projects seeking to address social isolation experienced by such elderly persons and their carers (For the avoidance of doubt, this Priority Area of Focus does not include research projects).

Organizations applying for a grant must complete and lodge a Project Notification form. Details must include a précis of the project, how the project relates to the priority area, the amount of funding sought and how it would be used, and the expected outcome of the project. Such notification may be lodged electronically or by hard copy to the Mazda Foundation at the address given on the website.

If lodging a Project Notification form, please note that:

  • The project must fall within the Foundation’s nominated priority areas;
  • The organization must be an eligible recipient under the Income Tax Assessment Act;
  • The project must be consistent with the broader aims and objectives of the Foundation (published on this website); and all areas of the attached form must be completed.
