Toyota Expands Student Scholarship Program to $1 Million
To celebrate the event and the program’s achievements, more than 30 students and their families joined Toyota Financial Services at a Community Day event in Torrance, California, featuring retired NBA player and philanthropist AC Green.
“Toyota Financial Services is committed to reaching more communities and more promising students through our national philanthropic efforts and partnership with Boys & Girls Clubs of America,” said George Borst, president and CEO of Toyota Financial Services. “This year’s program expansion will allow these students to further their education and build on their individual experiences, providing them with better opportunities and a brighter future.”
“All of us at Boys & Girls Clubs of America appreciate Toyota’s efforts to help prepare students for higher education and fill the financial gaps they face for tuition,” said John Miller, national vice president of organizational and executive development for Boys & Girls Clubs of America. “These young people overcome immense challenges in pursuit of their education, and programs like Diplomas to Degrees and Making Life Easier give a needed boost for greater accomplishments and stronger communities.”
Since 2007, Toyota Financial Services has provided $2.4 million in Making Life Easier scholarships to more that 500 deserving.
