This past February, Toyota stepped out to support The Trevor Project once again when they raffled off a Scion FR-S to benefit our life-saving work. The $26,000 car was featured at TrevorLIVE Los Angeles this past December, where guests were invited to purchase raffle tickets and earn a chance to win the sleek new model. The winner was announced at a celebratory event that was hosted by Lisa Vanderpump at PUMP West Hollywood.
The Trevor Project’s relationship with Toyota spans many years, and the corporation continues to help support the LGBT community and The Trevor Project. The company’s passion for fostering a culture of equality at their own workplace is widely known, and Toyota has continuously been given a score of 100 on the HRC Corporate Equality Index.
For the past two years, Toyota has been a sponsor of TrevorLIVE, including sponsoring the Red Carpet Live Stream; and in 2014, Toyota was honored with the Trevor 20/20 Visionary Award for their public support and commitment to advancing empowering, inclusive messages for the LGBT community.
In the same year, Trevor was added as a partner to Toyota’s employee giving options, which includes a select group of charitable organizations that are chosen by the employees themselves. Toyota Financial also helped support the Trevor Youth Advisory Council by sponsoring their annual conference in Los Angeles, which brought together young LGBTQ and ally innovators from around the country.
Thanks to the support of corporations like Toyota, The Trevor Project is able to grow and reach more LGBTQ youth in crisis. If you are interested in learning more about becoming a corporate partner or sponsor, click HERE. Together, we can work to save lives!
