Employee community grants
Every year, Toyota provides employees with an opportunity to win a $1,000 grant for a non-profit community group they actively support. Since the program began in 2013, we have awarded almost $200,000 to groups chosen by our employees, making a huge difference to these organisations.
The grants have helped sports clubs buy equipment and uniforms, kindergartens build outdoor playgrounds and even the staging of a swimming carnival for children living with a disability.
Winners include the Hoppers Crossing Junior Netball Association, who used the grant money to purchase uniforms and matching bibs. They reached week one of the finals in 2016, a huge improvement from last season and a massive boost to their confidence and skills.
