Yamaha Motor Manufacturing Corporation has earned the runner-up position in the prestigious IMPACT Corporate Innovative Project Award, showcasing their outstanding support for the Soapbox Derby Academy, a brief yet impactful community engagement initiative.

Presented by the Corporate Volunteer Council of Atlanta (CVC), the award acknowledges businesses excelling in innovative, impactful projects in employee engagement, volunteerism, and social impact.

Yamaha’s Soapbox Derby Academy, in partnership with the Coweta Community Foundation, Boys & Girls Club of Metro Atlanta, and Bridging The Gap, sponsored entries for 20 children in a thrilling soapbox derby car race. It was a vital part of a community fundraiser benefiting three nonprofit partners. The project featured engaging workshops where Yamaha employees and volunteers worked closely with students, designing soapbox vehicles from Yamaha parts and testing them on a custom course.

The Coweta Community Foundation commends Yamaha Motor Manufacturing Corporation for their unwavering support and commitment to building a stronger, more connected community. This recognition is a testament to their corporate citizenship and dedication to innovative community engagement.
