This is the second consecutive year for Toyota's 100 Cars for Good, which is the first Toyota initiative to enlist the public's help in determining how the company's charitable contributions are awarded.  The 500 finalists, selected from an extremely competitive pool, were certified by an independent panel of experts in philanthropy and corporate social responsibility. The finalists, which come from all 50 states and Washington, DC, represent nonprofits serving a broad range of community needs, including animal welfare, arts, education, environment, health, veterans' affairs and safety. 

"Toyota congratulates all of this year's finalists," said Jim Lentz, President and Chief Executive Officer of Toyota Motor Sales.  "We are grateful for the enormous impact that these nonprofits have each day, and we hope that 100 Cars for Good will play an important role in raising awareness of their work and helping these vital community organizations make an even bigger difference.  We wish each of the finalists the best of luck and thank all of the nonprofit groups that participated in the application process."

100 Cars for Good voting will begin May 14 and continue through August 21.  Each day, five organizations will be profiled on Toyota's Facebook page at www.100carsforgood.com.  Individuals will be able to vote once each day for the nonprofit they think is most deserving of a new car.  The organization with the most votes at the end of the day will win the vehicle.
