Supporting Diverse Organizations and Minority-Owned Businesses
- In April 2016, TFS issued its fourth Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) Bond in the amount of $1.25 billion, setting a record for the largest bond in which D&I firms play a lead role. Enabling diversity firms to strengthen their experience working on high-profile deals, this D&I Bond not only served as an integral component of Toyota’s comprehensive funding program, but also served as a bright example of Toyota’s longstanding efforts to promote minority-owned and women-owned enterprises and diversity in the marketplace.

- Through its Supplier Diversity processes, Toyota actively supports organizations – such as National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC), Women Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (USHCC), and more – that share the common goals of development and economic sustainability of diverse entrepreneurs who provide a competitive advantage and deliver exceptional mobility experiences through innovation to Toyota.
- In 2017, Toyota was named “Corporation of the Year” by the National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC) for a record 4th time, an honor only three other corporations have achieved in NMSDC’s 45-year history.
- And, true to the Toyota Way, we have established processes to provide insight, guidance and diversity of thought from both internal and external stakeholders – including from Toyota’s Diversity Advisory Board (the automotive industry’s first), the North American Diversity & Inclusion Alliance (NADIA), the Executive Diversity & Inclusion Council (EDIC) and Toyota Financial Services (TFS) Management Committee.
Supporting Engaged, Diverse and Inclusive Environments for All
- In 2017, the Points of Light Foundation named TFS to its Civic 50 list for the 3rd consecutive year, in recognition of TFS’ unwavering commitment to youth development and successful initiatives such as:
- the “Making Life Easier” (MLE) Financial Empowerment initiative and its strong partnerships and programs with Girl Scouts of the USA, Boys & Girls Clubs, Junior Achievement USA, AFSA Education Foundation and Jump$tart;
- the TFS “Road to Success” program, which provides mentorship, educational, and scholarship opportunities to underserved youth; and
- the Community Ambassador program, which promotes team member engagement within the community.
- In 2014, TFS – in partnership with Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) – launched “Driving My Financial Future,” a multi-year financial literacy campaign, worth over $3.3 million, to reach 40,000 girls nationwide and help teach them how to become financially savvy leaders; how to obtain real-life, age-appropriate financial skills; and how to gain the tools necessary to make a positive influence in their communities.
- Since 2007, TFS has provided $2.4 million in academic scholarships for nearly 500 Boys & Girls Clubs of America alumni and staff, and supported thousands of middle and high-school youth with mentorships, internships and financial or career programs. Toyota team members, at all levels of the organization, volunteer with the Clubs as well, including TFS President & CEO, Mike Groff, who serves on the Board of Trustees for Boys & Girls Clubs of America.
