With a view to achieving the creation of a prosperous society, and to contribute to the sustainable development of such a society, Toyota adopts a set of principles for philanthropic activities where it joins forces with a broad segment of society, uses its resources effectively, and engages in philanthropic activities that will contribute to solving societal issues while promoting the development of human resources who will lead the next generation, in line with local conditions in each country and region.

The grant program, based on the above principles, offers support for projects committed to capacity building for next-generation environmental conservation, and for projects that seek to cultivate solutions to environmental issues collaboratively with NPOs and other non-profit private groups.

Followed by the previous year, they have three categories to be applied; International Project Grant for project activities taken in overseas, for any groups based in Japan or any collaborative groups based in Japan and other countries, Domestic Project Grant for community-based activities in Japan, and Domestic Small Project Grant for community-based activities in Japan, which is granted newly.
