Value, Safety and Quality of Life: Toyota's Promise to The Community
In developing its business activities, Toyota has long emphasized its relationship with local communities and the global society.
Toyota works hard to improve the quality of life for people through company philanthropy and the goodwill of thousands of Toyota team members. In addition, we continue to pursue new technologies that can add value, safety, and enjoyment to our customers around the world.
Across America, Toyota is Helping Those in Need
As a good corporate citizen, Toyota contributes to economic and social development in local communities. Giving back to the communities where our team members live and work is a priority for Toyota. We believe in helping people improve the quality of life in their communities through educational and family literacy programs. We also partner with leading organizations that educate children and their families about creating a cleaner, greener and healthier world.
When Toyota broke ground in San Antonio, it demonstrated its commitment to the community by providing donations supporting El Centro del Barrio, San Antonio Economic Development Foundation and the San Antonio Education Partnership. Locally and nationally, Toyota continues to give back to its communities.
National Center for Family Literacy
In 1991, Toyota began a partnership with the National Center for Family Literacy (NCFL) to create the Toyota Families for Learning Program for preschool children and their parents. Today, that relationship has grown into three separate programs that reach children and their families through more than 180 family literacy sites in 29 cities in 21 states.
To date, Toyota has contributed more than $19 million to NCFL programs, including Toyota Families in Schools, Toyota Family Literacy Teacher of the Year Award, and Toyota Family Literacy Program, the first family literacy initiative to focus on the specific needs of Hispanic families with low English and literacy skills.
