Toyota’s ‘100 Cars for Good’: An Opportunity for Nonprofits


I want to share information on Toyota’s “100 Cars for Good” program because I think it’s a great opportunity for registered 501(c)(3) organizations. So many friends are out there working for the greater good, whether helping animals, children or those forgotten by society. A car could be a useful tool in reaching out. So here it is, simply:

What is it? This is Toyota’s second annual “100 Cars for Good” program, in which Toyota will give 100 cars to 100 nonprofits over 100 days. Winners will be determined by voting on Facebook.

How do you apply? Registered nonprofits apply online here. The application period starts March 12th and will last two weeks, or until 5000 applications have been received, so apply early. An outside panel, experts in philanthropy and social responsibility according to Toyota, will select 500 finalists.

Who wins? All finalists win – this is why “100 Cars for Good” is great. If you’re a finalist, you get a $1000 grant, worst case scenario. That’s because each day for 100 days, Facebook users will vote for on five finalists. One will win a car. The other four will get a $1000 grant. So apply, and you have a 1 in 10 chance at a $1000 grant for your organization. And a 1 in 50 chance at a car. That’s pretty good.

Apply. Do it. Then let me know so I can vote for you.
