In the Local Community
Chadstone Toyota is proud to have been a member of the local community for over 25 years and supporting grass roots sporting clubs has been an integral part of this. We believe that supporting the local community is important as we are able to give something in return to the community in which we operate and who have so kindly supported us over the years.
In addition to the sponsorship, we offer a loyalty bonus that is paid to each club for every member who buys a car through us, at Chadstone Toyota.
Oakleigh District Football Club
Oakleigh District Football Club has been part of the local community for 64 years. They are a small local football club with 3 senior football teams and 1 female netball side. They engage the local community especially through underage football.
Quote from Chairman
“My name is Greg Kiellerup and I have been President of the Oakleigh District Football/Cricket club for the past four years. Our club is affiliated with the Southern Football League. After winning the Division 2 Premiership last year we will now be competing in Division 1 in 2016.
Chadstone Toyota has sponsored ODFC for the past seven years and we have established a good relationship with mutual benefit. We take a lot of pride in building relationships with our sponsors and particularly enjoy being associated with local businesses. We value what has been a long term association with Chadstone Toyota and look forward to an ongoing mutually beneficial relationship”
De La Salle Old Collegians Football Club
Last year we celebrated our 60th Anniversary, and made the finals after a scintillating 10-game winning streak in the back half of the year. This year we welcome back four key senior players to the side after a season of VFL duties, and we will also be fielding 8 teams – over 200 players will represent the Blue & Gold.
“Without the support of our highly valued club partners like Chadstone Toyota, along with our legion of members, the club would not be in operation. Importantly, we not only place immeasurable importance on the support of partners who invest with us, but we actively ensure through our off-field team that mutual value is driven for our partners. Having supported us for over eight years, Chadstone Toyota’s relationship with De La Salle has been much appreciated and we look forward to providing return via promotion and recommendation throughout our club community. We look forward to taking the partnership to another level in 2016 as we look to grow together”
Murrumbeena Football Club
Chadstone Toyota have been very committed to The Murrumbeena Football Netball Club and combined have journeyed together, with support for each other, over the last 10 years. The club has evolved over time, not only fielding a Seniors and Reserves team, but also our own netball team, under the Southern Football Netball League.
The future sees the club now steering towards fielding a Women’s Football team and pushing for an Under 19’s team in 2017. With annual events like Past Players “Has Beenas’ Day and Ladies Day, Chadstone Toyota’s presence has been there with us all the way.
The Club has started working behind the scenes in preparation of our 100 year Celebration in 2018 and look forward to seeing many HasBeena’s sharing in our exciting event.
The Club as a Sporting Community is focused on creating a friendly, family environment for our young sports men and women and we know Chadstone Toyota will be right behind us and that to the club is …. Oh what a feeling!

We have a strong focus on engaging with our community and have participated in events such as:

National Tree Day
Celebrating its 20th year, National Tree Day is an initiative of the highly respected not-for-profit environmental foundation, Planet Ark. It was originally created to bring the Australian community’s attention to the importance of planting native trees to protect and enhance our natural environment.
Toyota has been a proud sponsor since 2000 and since that time National Tree Day has grown into the largest community based tree planting and nature care activity in Australia. Over 22.3 million trees have been planted by more than 3.8million people since 1996.
“It is a great community awareness exercise that helps drive environmental initiatives in our community, it is one of our favourite days of the year” Dean Ward – General Manager – Chadstone Toyota
Chadstone Toyota are proud to support both Clayton North Primary School and Ashwood Children’s Centre during National Tree Day.
