Those in the Boardman area already know they can turn to Toyota for innovative, eco-friendly vehicles (i.e. the Toyota Prius). But did you know that you can turn to the automaker for grant funding as well? That's right. Toyota, along with its green partner The National Audubon Society, is now taking applications for its TogetherGreen Fellowship and TogetherGreen Grant programs.
To give you a bit of background 411, Toyota and Audubon have been working together in a conservation alliance dubbed "TogetherGreen" since 2008. Both extremely conscious of our impact on the environment, the two partners have built the promise to create a greener, healthier future through innovation and conservation leadership.
Those seeking out support to help make a personal green goal a reality should look no further than Toyota and Audubon's Fellowship funding. This initiative offers a $10,000 grant to individuals who will take on a 12-month conservation project in their community. In addition to financial support, TogetherGreen will also guide the fellow through specialized, conservation training.
Already have a green group and in need of a grant to get it going? If so, then the TogetherGreen Innovation Grant program is perfect for you and your fellow eco-lovers. Through a series of $5,000-$80,000 grants, Toyota provides fiscal backing to 40 different group projects or more.
In order to apply for either of these Toyota-Audubon programs, simply hop on either of the two following sites by March 5: www.togethergreen.org/Grants/GrantsGuidelines.aspx or www.togethergreen.org/fellows. Of course, you can also do your part to save Mother Nature by driving one of the fuel-efficient new Toyota vehicles at Toyota of Boardman, 8250 Market Street Boardman, OH 44512. Don't hesitate to contact one of our brand advisors and make the switch to Toyota today.
