WHAT WE DO
 
Toyota Financial Services (TFS) is a leading provider of automotive financial services, offering an extensive line of financing and vehicle protection products to Toyota customers and dealers in the United States.

Since 1983, TFS has helped millions of Toyota customers drive the vehicle of their dreams. From flexible finance and lease options, to vehicle and payment protection and insurance products that add peace of mind, our programs are designed to meet the unique needs of Toyota drivers. We are committed to offering quality products that provide convenience, value, and to delivering consistent support that helps ensure customer and dealer satisfaction.
 
WHAT WE OFFER
 
Businesses have the potential to improve lives and move the needle on critical issues, especially in collaboration with great partners like Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA), Junior Achievement (JA), Jump$tart and AFSA Education Foundation (AFSA). We believe companies should be active in helping to solve pressing social issues to build sustainable communities – and we are proud to help lead the way.
 
We realize our communities are greatly underprovided in the area of financial education. At TFS, we know the importance of understanding credit and the economic opportunities that go along with financial capability. TFS does not just give dollars; we give our time, our energy and our know-how. 
 
Since 2007, our employees have dedicated more than 185,000 hours to mentor young people and support educational programs to help communities succeed. Our goal is to create upward mobility for communities where our employees live and work. Through our “making life easier” programs, we partner with best-in class, nationally recognized organizations to provide educational opportunities and tools to underserved students ages 5-26, with a focus on youth and financial education. 
 
Through programs like “Driving My Financial Future,” Toyota empowers underrepresented youth and local community members to make informed financial decisions by sharing our know-how and educational resources.  Together, TFS and our partners are connecting to bring financial fundamentals to tens of thousands of youth nationwide.

WHAT’S NEW
 
TFS partnered with Girls Scouts of the USA to launch “Driving My Financial Future”in 2014. We are poised to exceed our initial target of providing financial education for 26,000 under-served girls in 10 cities. The program is working. Ninety percent of Scouts participating in the program report they have learned financial skills that they can apply to their life. The curriculum, which includes financial education badge toolkits created by TFS, is available nationwide to 1.9 million girls ages 5 to 18.
 
TFS has renewed and expanded our partnership with Junior Achievement (JA) which has the potential to reach 50,000 students in the coming school year. TFS funding supports JA Finance Park and Biz Town in five locations where TFS has offices across the country. JA teaches financial skills and workplace readiness to more than 4 million students each year, helping to prepare students for adulthood and TFS is proud to support their mission.
