Grants & Gifts

Toyota Motor North America, Inc. (TMA)

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. For a description of the Foundation program and our partners, click here. For the Foundation guidelines and application, click here.

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.


Toyota prefers to support programs, rather than sponsor events. Organizations must apply for each new grant requested, and subsequent funding is contingent upon evaluation of previous activities.


TMA does not make grants for publications, lobbying activities, advertising, capital campaigns or endowments. Individuals are ineligible to apply. Toyota will not make grants to the following types of organizations/activities:


Across U.S. and locally in the New York City area.


Nationally, Toyota focuses in 3 areas: environment, safety and education. National programs in these areas must have a broad reach by impacting several major U.S. cities, communities or groups.

In the local New York City area, we also focus on those three major areas, and provide other local assistance as well. This includes but is not limited to organizations working in arts & culture, civic & community, health and human services, disaster relief, and leadership development.
