Public Voting Determined Which Nonprofit Organizations Received New Toyota Vehicles
100 Winning Organizations Begin Receiving Vehicles in September 2012
More than $7 Million in Vehicles and Cash Grants Awarded Over the Last Two Years of the Program

TORRANCE, Calif. (August 28, 2012)– Tuesday, August 21 marked the last day of voting in Toyota’s 100 Cars for Good program, a national philanthropic program that awards 100 cars to 100 U.S. nonprofits over the course of 100 consecutive days. Winners were selected each day through public voting on Facebook at www.100carsforgood.com.

Each day five nonprofit organizations were profiled on the 100 Cars for Good Facebook page where the public could vote for their favorite organization. The organization with the most votes at the end of the day won a new Toyota vehicle while the four runners-up each day received a $1,000 cash grant from Toyota. In total, 100 new Toyota vehicles and $400,000 in cash grants are being awarded to non-profit organizations across the country.

“It is rewarding and inspiring to see the response Toyota’s 100 Cars for Good program has received from the public,” said Jim Lentz, president and chief executive officer of Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc. “Over the course of two years, this program has awarded more than $7 million in vehicles and cash grants to local nonprofit organizations across the country, as well as helping to raise awareness to hundreds more. We are very pleased to have the opportunity to help these worthwhile organizations broaden their impact in communities all across the nation, and we thank the public for their support in determining the winners.”

Winning organizations offer services in a variety of areas, including: education, safety, animal welfare food banks, and human services for children and adults.
