Toyota Financial Services was named for its fifth time in a row as one of the most community-minded companies by Points of Light Foundation on its Civic 50 list.
It was recognized for its commitment to creating opportunities for young people and fostering financial empowerment, including funding and administering a merit-based college scholarship program.
The company partners with Girl Scouts of the USA, Boys & Girls Clubs of America, and Junior Achievement, and its employees volunteer to help develop competencies in leadership, communication, and project management. Last year, a record 59 percent of Toyota Financial Services employees recorded over 20,000 volunteer hours.
“I've always been inspired by TFS team members and their dedication to getting involved and helping build a better world,” said Mark Templin, president and CEO of TFS. “Giving back to our communities is part of our Toyota DNA, and we're honored and humbled that Points of Light Foundation has recognized our efforts.”
The Civic 50 honorees are chosen based on four dimensions of their national community engagement programs: integration, investment, impact, and institutionalization.
