Established in 1974, the Toyota Foundation has continued to execute a multinational grant program to which an individual without organizational affiliation or any experience in or special qualifications for research may apply. A total of 150 million yen of grants are assigned to various research-aid fund programs each year. The social enterprise E-eum was one of the Korea n beneficiaries last year (blog.grasslog.net), as its program to promote resident participation in local governance was highly recognized.

The selection criteria of the Toyota Foundation’s grant program are almost identical to other grant programs of the Toyota Foundation

1. Accordance with the mission of the grant program

2. Consistency in writing applications and related documents

3. Feasibility in schedule


 

It is expected that various organizations will join this grant program so as to establish a sustainable paradigm in Asia with the purpose of conserving and promoting Asia’s heritages, as well as resolving problems in Asia.

 

The Work Together Foundation plans to continue to support activities to expand exchanges in the private sector, in cooperation with overseas foundations including the Toyota Foundation.
