Toyota Announces Return of '100 Cars for Good' Program for 2012
Earlier this month at the Chicago Auto Show, Toyota announced the return of its "100 Cars for Good" program. Building on the success and popularity of the program in its inaugural year, Toyota will again award 100 vehicles over the course of 100 days to 100 deserving nonprofit organizations based on votes from the public through the 100 Cars for Good tab on the Toyota Facebook page.
The official announcement was made by Michael Rouse, vice president of philanthropy and community affairs for Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., accompanied by some of the recipients of last year's 100 Cars for Good program.
"At Toyota, we appreciate what a big difference a new car can make for organizations working to improve lives and strengthen communities across the country, and we are thrilled to have this opportunity to lend a hand," said Rouse. "Over the last 20 years, Toyota has contributed more than half a billion dollars to non-profits throughout the U.S. 100 Cars for Good allows us to build on that commitment in important, new ways by making the public an integral part of these efforts and harnessing the power of social media to expand awareness and galvanize support for organizations that are having such a tremendous impact in neighborhoods nationwide."
Registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations can apply on-line through Toyota's Facebook page at www.facebook.com/Toyota (http://www.100carsforgood.com/), starting on March 12, 2012, for a chance to win one of six Toyota vehicles, including the Camry Hybrid, Highlander, Prius v, Sienna minivan, Sienna Mobility or Tundra full-sized pickup truck. Voting will start May 14, 2012.

Najim Family Foundation announces new Executive Director On December 28, 2006, I started my Foundation by depositing $75M at Broadway Bank. Since I did not know how to run a Foundation, I hired the Wealth Management Division at Broadway Bank to run the Foundation for me.
In March of 2008, I made the decision to move the operation of the Foundation to Sirius. By July, it became obvious to me that I needed to hire someone to help me run the Foundation. I was fortunate to find and hire Melissa Bauman, from the AT&T Foundation, to be my Grants Manager.
