Toyota Community Trust

Enabling young Australians to realise their potential

The Toyota Community Trust is an ongoing legacy of Toyota’s manufacturing presence in Australia.

Following the closure of its manufacturing operations 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 science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). The current focus is on projects in Melbourne’s west.

The Trust aims to:

  • Address 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 Toyota Community Trust is a discretionary trust, managed by the Directors of Toyota Community Foundation Australia Pty Ltd, acting as Trustee.
