Established in 2017, the Toyota Community Trust is an ongoing legacy of Toyota’s manufacturing presence in Australia.
With its manufacturing operations closing in Australia, Toyota wanted to leave a legacy that would provide long term benefits to the Australian community.
With its first grants, the Toyota Community Trust is aiming to encourage and enable more young Australians to pursue further study and future careers in STEM.
With an initial focus on Melbourne’s west, the Trust aims to:
• Address financial barriers to students pursuing STEM related studies
• Provide students with access to quality learning environments and experiences
• Support teachers to strengthen their STEM teaching skills
• Address gaps between studies offered and employer needs
The TCT is a discretionary trust, managed by the Directors of Toyota Community Foundation Australia Pty Ltd, acting as Trustee.
