Toyota gives $20 million to Audubon Society

The $20 million Toyota grant announced yesterday is the largest Audubon has received in its 103-year history. It will fund TogetherGreen a conservation program with three components:

  • Innovation Grants to fund dozens of on-the-ground projects each year that employ creative approaches and engage diverse communities to help achieve measurable land, water and/or energy conservation results.
  • Conservation Fellowships to train and foster up to 200 promising environmental leaders who can serve as role models, expert guides and organizers for engaging new and diverse audiences in effective conservation action.
  • Volunteer Days to be offered at Audubon Centers and other locations nationwide, providing hands-on opportunities to address environmental problems and take part in restoration activities.
