Mazda Foundation Grants
Aims to fund three priority areas: supporting primary producers facing hardship, programs that address literacy and numeracy issues amongst primary school aged children, and medical research to benefit the Australian community.
The independent Board of Directors will consider each application and identify projects for which further detail will be sought. An agreed contribution will be made to the approved organisation(s) and the successful applicants notified.
If lodging a Project Notification form, please note that:
– The project must fall within the Foundation’s nominated priority area
– The organisation 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 and all areas of the attached form must be completed
– The Foundation will acknowledge receipt of the Project Notification form, but this should not be seen as in any way indicating that the request for consideration will progress further.
Any Project Notification received by the Foundation will be considered at the Foundation’s Board meetings held in April and October. As such Project Notifications must be submitted for notification by 31 March and 30 September. The Foundation’s Board meets approximately four times per year, and accordingly a period of some months may elapse between lodgment of a Project Notification and it being selected for funding.
Once the Foundation selects a project for funding, it may seek a detailed submission from the applicant and/or seek to confer with the applicant.
The Foundation currently has three priority areas of focus, being:
– Community based organisations with projects supporting primary producers facing hardship
– Programs addressing literacy and numeracy issues amongst primary school aged children, especially remedial programs for children from disadvantaged areas
– Medical research to benefit the Australian community.
