Toyota Motor Manufacturing, West Virginia, Inc. (TMMWV)
TOYOTA’S MISSION IN NORTH AMERICA
At Toyota, we believe an auto company can also be a vehicle for change. That’s why we support programs focused on environment, education and safety initiatives that help strengthen the diverse communities where we live and work – for today and for the future.
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.

FUNDING SCOPE FOR TMMWV
TMMWV is committed to continuing the worldwide Toyota tradition of community involvement and support. In response to the needs and interests of our team members and our community, we have designed a corporate donations program focusing on specific issues and geographic areas with our first priority of improving the quality of life in the community in which we operate. TMMWV provides funding to Education, Health & Human Services, Civic and Community, Arts & Culture and Environmental organizations. TMMWV’s Education donations focus primarily on projects that serve K-12 students in the public setting. Community development activities must improve the economy or the quality of life for the people in our region. Health and Human Services projects must be aimed at significantly improving health or health care, or providing assistance to families in need. Environmental activities must be designed to preserve, restore, or improve the quality of air, natural or wildlife resources. Grants are reviewed quarterly (March, June, September, December). Submission deadlines for applications are: March 1, June 1, October 1, January 1. For questions about TMMWV’s guidelines, contact: 304-937-7403.
