CSR Press Release

NCFL Announces $2.2 Million Grant to Toyota Families in Schools Programs For Elementary Schools in Five Additional Cities

Submitted by: Toyota Motor Corporation

Categories: Philanthropy & Corporate Contributions

Posted: Jul 27, 2000 – 12:00 AM EST

 

The National Center for Family Literacy (NCFL) announced today it has received a $2.2 million grant from the Toyota Motor Corporation to expand the Toyota Families in Schools Program (TFS) in five additional cities. The TFS program's primary goal is to increase the achievement of children ages 5 to 12 by implementing strong family literacy programs in the elementary school setting.

Each school district will receive a total of $225,000 for a three-year cycle of funding to operate family literacy programs at three elementary school sites. The districts are: Aurora Public Schools, Aurora, Colorado; Richmond City Public Schools, Richmond, Virginia; Fremont Unified School District, Fremont, California; Broward County Public Schools, Ft. Lauderdale, Florida; and Evansville-Vanderburgh School Corporation, Evansville, Indiana. This grant brings the total of TFS programs to 45 elementary schools located in 15 districts nationally.

The program is the result of a long-standing nine-year partnership between NCFL and Toyota to which Toyota has contributed more than $16 million. The TFS program was announced in 1998 with an initial grant of $2.7 million from Toyota Motor Corporation. Although TFS is a new initiative, it is grounded in a long-standing project created through the Toyota Families for Learning (TFFL) program.

Nationally, the TFS programs target the elementary school-aged child who is deemed to be at-risk and whose parents lack literacy and employment skills and are likely to live in poverty. TFS will focus on increasing the achievement of elementary school-age children by helping parents and their children gain basic skills and by building strong family support for education. It is expected that the project will reach 7,000 parents and children over the grant period through direct program services as well as many more family members and communities indirectly.
