Our origins may be half a world away, but we have very deep roots here in Ohio. From the moment we began mass production in 1979, we’ve strived to be a good neighbor and have been proud to support a variety of philanthropic programs in the communities where we live and work. After all, the vast majority of our associates were born and raised right here in Ohio.
At Honda, we believe one of the most important things we can do is give back to those we call our neighbors. That’s why the Honda Foundation proudly supports programs and projects that sustain our communities and enhance quality of life. Through the years, we’ve contributed funding that helps bolster food, shelter and public care centers for those who need it most.
The Honda Foundation application submission period is now closed.
Our corporate contributions provide direct financial support to public charities that share our focus. Priority is therefore given to programs and projects that sustain and protect our environment, enhance the quality of life through mobility, and educate our youth through STEM programs and cultural exchange. We believe that giving back in these ways can help ensure a better future for everyone.

Our associates are passionate about supporting their local communities, helping those in need and preserving the environment for future generations.
HondaGO is composed of three pillars, Volunteer - Give - Active, all which represent a personal investment on behalf of our associates who willingly give their time, money and sweat for the causes that matter most to them.
Our associates, retirees and their spouses can volunteer to help their community through HondaGO Volunteer. And volunteer they do, dedicating weekends, evenings and spare time to the community programs of their choice. It’s a passion for helping others we are pleased to support. Which is why every time an associate volunteers 50 hours to a special cause, we award a $250 Dollars for Doers grant.
Since 1995, Honda has supported more than 1,800 volunteers, each one ready to spring into action at a moment’s notice, a force for positive change that has earned more than $1.6 million in Dollars for Doers grants.
Promoting healthy living while also giving our associates more opportunities to support the local community is the core mission of HondaGO Active. Honda partners with local organizations to sponsor various walks, runs and rides for our associates to get involved in that support important causes.
Our associates can pledge their support to our local communities financially by giving through the United Way campaign or the Matching Gift program.
Our company and our associates have been contributing to United Way since 1982. Since then, our annual workplace campaign has provided more than $38 million to the United Way.
Honda’s Matching Gift program is designed to supplement associate-directed funding to cultural and educational organizations. Honda augments the associate’s contribution to eligible organizations with a 50% match. Organizations that may be eligible for this funding include 4-year and 2-year colleges, technical institutes and arts and cultural organizations.
