Doxon Toyota is proud of the work Toyota and NCFL are doing to help the community would encourages local organizations to participate.
Online PR News – 03-June-2013 – Auburn, WA – Toyota is partnering with the National Center for Family Literacy for a $10 million initiative to increase family learning. The money will go towards several grants, programs and organizations that will help improve parent and child literacy. Doxon Toyota is proud to be associated with a company that works so hard to improve the lives of others.
The new Toyota initiative will be known as Toyota Family Learning. It is a six-year initiative that will expand literacy teaching from classrooms into homes and communities through different organizations. The initiative will promote learning through online resources such as websites, mobile apps and social media. It will also incorporate learning through community organizations.
In order to help these organizations, the first phase of the Toyota Family Learning initiative is a grant program. Submissions are being accepted now through June 24 for a three-year, $175,000 grant that will be awarded to five different organizations for training, support, learning items and materials. Submissions will be judged on several factors such as strength of existing programs, commitment from community and strength of proposal. Over the course of the six years, 15 grants will be given out.
“The vision for Toyota Family Learning is to become a modern-day movement for families learning together,” said Sharon Darling, President and Founder of NCFL. “This grant program launch is the first of many steps we’ll be taking in the coming months and years to make that vision a reality.”
The Toyota Family Learning initiative will continue to implement new programs throughout the next six years. Toyota and NCFL have been working together to increase family learning for over 20 years. Organizations looking to entry for the grant can find more information at www.toyotafamilylearning.org.
Doxon Toyota is happy to see Toyota making such an effort to increase family literacy and to help those in the community. For more information on Doxon Toyota events and community activities, visit www.DoxonToyota.com.
