In 2008, Toyota and the National Audubon Society launched TogetherGreen. A $20 million Toyota grant will fund TogetherGreen for five years.
TogetherGreen has three major components:
A Conservation Fellowship program to recognize and nurture the environmental leaders of tomorrow
Innovation Grants to support creative projects that contribute to significant gains in habitat,
water and energy conservation
Volunteer projects at sites across the country to create a call to action for real conservation impact in diverse communities
Also, the interactive TogetherGreen website encourages people of all ages to take action and become involved.
TogetherGreen is the latest program in a long relationship between Toyota and
Audubon. Previously, Toyota established the Toyota Endowment Fund for Environmental
Education. In Brooklyn, New York, the Fund provided a $1 million grant for programs
at the Prospect Park Audubon Center. In Los Angeles, an additional $1 million
gift from Toyota supported an urban
Audubon Center in Debs Park.
