The Mazda Foundation funds nonprofit organizations in the areas of education and literacy, environmental conservation, and others. It support programs ranging from children's organizations and food banks, to animal shelters and STEM programs. And as community needs change, the Mazda Foundation adapts their giving to offer the most effective support. The Foundation primarily considers grant applications from organizations located in markets where Mazda has offices (Irvine, CA; Bridgewater, NJ; Chicago, IL; Sugarland, TX; Jacksonville, FL; and Huntsville, AL).
