The Honda Foundation surpasses $14 million in donations.

Honda Foundation – Motor companies can often come in for a lot of criticism about greedy corporate profit. But many companies run charitable foundations that are vital for the community and the disadvantaged.

The Honda Foundation has been around since 1992 and over the 2021/2022 period has donated over $14 million to a number of recipients.

Campaigns were run in conjunction with Movember, Starlight Children’s Foundation, White Ribbon Australia, Head Space, Camp Quality and the Leukemia Foundation.

The foundation has supported The Kidney Foundation for work to modify their ‘Big Red Kidney Bus’, which helps to enable patients with severe kidney issues and requiring dialysis to come onto the bus for treatment.

For every new Honda vehicle sold in Australia, $30 is donated to The Honda Foundation.

Other companies that have a heavy charitable presence include Toyota, Kia, Subaru, Isuzu, Hyundai Audi and more.

In a society such as Australia, no one should be left behind, but somehow some people or organisations fall through the cracks. Its comforting to know that many car manufacturers are there to help.

The Honda Foundation and Honda Australia have a strong belief in the power of helping others. Since 1992, The Honda Foundation has helped fund and empower organizations that are focused on helping people in need, across Australia.

The Honda Foundation is funded by contributions from Honda Australia and the 86 Honda Centre’s across the country that are an important part of local communities. For every new Honda vehicle sold in Australia, $30 is donated to The Honda Foundation.

The Honda Foundation understands the power of mobility by operating a 12-month Loan Vehicle Program which includes registration, insurance, and all servicing costs. This program is capped at 20 loan vehicles at any one time, but allows organisations who care for the disadvantaged, to accompany them to appointments and various other activities.

“The Honda Foundation has a strong belief in the power of helping others. We take on and embrace this responsibility by funding and empowering organisations that are focused on making a positive contribution to the community. I am very proud to Chair The Honda Foundation and look forward to our contributions in 2023, given the impact we have been able to provide hundreds of causes over the past 12-18 months,” said Carolyn McMahon, chairperson for The Honda Foundation.
