Toyota Financial Services has offered scholarships to underserved children since 2007 with its Making Life Easier scholarship program, but this year it is upping its commitment by offering one million dollars for the 2013 year. The program works through TFS’ many non-profit partners like the Boys & Girls Clubs of America.
Making Life Easier provides disadvantaged students with up to $20,000 for school tuition and fees. The funds are available for colleges, universities or trade vocational schools.
To help kids reach higher education TFS has also created the D2D program – Diplomas to Degrees. The program is an extensive college preparedness program that has been funded by an initial grant of $1.5 million dollars from Toyota, to be used over the next three years.
“Toyota Financial Services is building on six years of success and expanding our Making Life Easier scholarship program will enable us to reach thousands of kids on a national level,” said George Borst, President and CEO of Toyota Financial Services. “We are committed to helping improve the quality of life in the communities where we live and work, and through our partnerships with Boys & Girls Clubs of America and other non-profits we are able to engage with really inspirational and courageous students and become a part of their lives.”
It is always nice to see automakers increase their commitment to the community.
