Good causes across the UK have been given a helping hand by the Toyota Fund for a Better Tomorrow, a programme of small grants designed to help local charities, schools and community projects. In the past financial year, the fund supported 74 deserving schemes, allocating more than £122,000.
In all its worldwide operations, Toyota seeks to be a good neighbour, supporting its local communities and the environment, fulfilling its role as a good corporate citizen. Through Toyota Fund for a Better Tomorrow it is able to involve its Toyota and Lexus retailer network in deserving community schemes and provide financial help.
Grants of up to £2,000 are available. Applications can be put forward by retail centres on behalf of projects in their local community, individual Toyota and Lexus staff members, or directly to the fund from projects local to Toyota GB’s head office in Epsom.
Rob Giles, Toyota GB director with responsibility for corporate social responsibility, said: “The Toyota Fund for a Better Tomorrow lets us give valuable help at grassroots level, working within communities on projects that might be simple, but which can make a real difference in improving people’s lives, opportunities and their local environment. It has proved a great success, with a wonderful variety of applications. We look forward to supporting even more good causes nationwide in the year ahead.”
