Toyota Earns Honor for Small Business Support

By Staff Writer June 24, 2018

Toyota Financial Services (TFS) was once again named one of the most community-minded companies in the nation by Points of Light Foundation. 

This is the fourth consecutive year that TFS earned a spot on the Civic 50 list.

As in previous years, TFS was recognized for its unwavering commitment to youth development and financial empowerment with successful initiatives such as the Making Life Easier program, various college scholarships, strong partnerships with Girl Scouts of the USA and Boys & Girls Clubs of America, and its Community Ambassador program, which promotes employee engagement within the community. 

This year, however, TFS also earned this recognition through its Small and Diverse Business Mentorship program.

The Small and Diverse Business Mentorship program began in 2016 as a pilot program for Women Business Enterprises, and was expanded in 2017 to include small businesses and LGBT business enterprises.  Through the program, companies were invited to apply for a yearlong mentorship with TFS executives who provided guidance in navigating corporate culture and operations.
