Grants & Gifts

Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing North America, Inc. (TEMA)

At Toyota, we believe an auto company can also be a vehicle for change. That’s why we support programs focused on environmenteducation and safety initiatives that help strengthen the diverse communities where we live and work – for today and for the future.

The Toyota USA Foundation funds education programs for K‐12 in math, science and education. Click here for the Foundation guidelines and application.

In addition to funding national programs, Toyota is proud to partner with nonprofit organizations across the U.S. in the local communities where we live and work. This includes supporting arts & culture, civic & community, health and human services, and leadership development.
