Sponsorship & Community
Eagers Automotive believes our dealerships should play an active role in the communities they work in. We look to partner with individuals, groups and organisations that we can share more than just a traditional sponsorship relationship with.
Although our annual sponsorship resources are limited, we welcome the opportunity to give back and get involved in our neighbourhoods. If you would like to speak to us about a sponsorship, please submit your sponsorship proposal using the form below for consideration. One of our team will be in touch regarding your application within two business days.
Current partnerships we are proud to be a part of include:
Breast Cancer Foundation
Every year, over 3500 New Zealanders are diagnosed with Breast Cancer. That is nine woman every day, of whom one will be Māori. Tragically, each year over 650 of them will die. About 25 of those diagnosed are men.
The Breast Cancer Foundation NZ (BCFNZ) want to see breast cancer reduced to a manageable disease – one that people don’t die from but live with. They have a single-minded mission to achieve this by pushing new frontiers in early detection, treatments, and patient support.
In 2021, Ford joined the BCFNZ family, supplying their nursing team, National Educator and CEO with three vehicles. This has enabled them to deliver much of the work listed below and move towards our mission of zero deaths.
- 1,492 people registered for our free webinars
- 3,879 calls were taken on our free breast nurse helpline
- 3,159 medical professionals were trained or reached with education
- 443,000 printed educational resources were distributed across NZ
- donated 2 new ultrasound machines for Whangarei hospital
- 1,394 patients were funded for counselling, physio and lymphoedema therapy
- 2,508 new patients’ data was recorded in the Breast Cancer Foundation National Register
- the Pink Caravan visited 49 towns around the country
- funded $1.9 million worth of research projects
- Pre-Check app was downloaded more than 13,000 times
On the road in 2021, BCFNZ nurses visited:
- 4,912 people visited the caravan (towed by signwritten vehicles).
- 87% of visitors were female
- 29% visitors were Maori
Most people who speak to the nurses are there to learn more about breast health and the early detection of breast cancer; other will approach our nurses with a number of different concerns.
