I. TOYOTA’S MISSION IN NORTH AMERICA
At Toyota, we believe an auto company can also be a vehicle for change. This is why Toyota is proud to partner with nonprofit organizations across the U.S. in the local communities where we live and work.
Toyota and affiliates support programs in environment, youth and education, safety and diversity.
Special consideration is given to programs with an educational focus that show sustainability. While Toyota prefers to support program-based requests, on occasion, Toyota will support fund-raising activities where the majority of the proceeds go directly to the organization.
