Goulburn's Mazda and Isuzu Ute dealership has been around in its current form for 10 years, carrying on the legacy of a business that was established 30 years ago.
"For the last 10 years we have been a major corporate sponsor of the Goulburn Bulldogs, contributing in excess of $100,000 during [that time]," says dealer principal Kieran Davies.
The reason supporting the community matters is because "Goulburn and district have always been great supporters of our dealership," Mr Davies said.
"For nine of the last 10 years Mazda have been the number one automotive brand that local owners have chosen. You only have to look around the streets of Goulburn to see how many Mazdas are zooming around and are parked in driveways.

"It's important that we give back and we choose therefore to do so in a way that has as wide a reach as possible," Mr Davies explained.
As such, the goal is for the greatest number of "local children, parents, volunteers and organisations [to] benefit, rather than targeting support of high-profile elite sportsmen that have already enjoyed success often with financial benefits that follow."
They have backed plenty of other teams and physical activities too.
"We have been significant sponsors of the Goulburn Stags and previously Goulburn Strikers, Goulburn Junior Stockmen, Goulburn Basketball, Goulburn Conservatorium and previous eisteddfods," with Mr Davies also noting that "alas they are no longer, however the new PAC may see its return and we will be there to support".
There was also "Trinity College First 15 Rugby, Goulburn Thoroughbred Racing and Goulburn Harness Racing, Goulburn Rodeo, Goulburn Show, Goulburn Golf Club Pennants team and numerous others."
Community support goes beyond sports groups too.
"With the beautification of Bradley Street, I personally paid for the new trees, plants, soil and construction work for the planter boxes on the road of Bradley Street, even though being council property, I knew what an enormous difference they would make to the streetscape and beautification once completed. This spring they're going to look amazing; can't wait for 10 year's time."
Giving time is also important. "I have been a board member for the last five years to assist Cr Margaret O'Neill with her lifelong work on the Challenge Foundation," Mr Davies noted.
"Our staff over many years have contributed to local sport and several have served with the SES that I have always supported their involvement in and support the community in times of need.
"Currently James Aubusson our general manager has been both a captain-coach and this year a pivotal player within the Goulburn Bulldogs that together with the return of the Cornish Boys and the entire team has seen them place in the grand final."
