Community Involvement


The Heffners have long been strong supporters of charities and projects in our community, and have consistently increased their business commitments to community events and organizations, supporting over 100 events and not-for-profit companies in the last year.
Despite a desire to support all deserving charities and events, the Heffner Lexus Toyota community investment policy has two aims:
1. to support organizations that work within, and enhance the lives of Kitchener-Waterloo residents, and
2. to focus on arts organizations and/or organizations that work to support children and families in crisis.
Support ranges from sponsorships of major events in the community (Season Sponsor for The Centre In The Square’s Entertainment Series, and Season Sponsor for the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony’s Pops Series), to smaller event sponsorships, such as charity golf tournaments, volleyball tournaments etc. The company also makes cash donations and donations of items to be used at auctions or as door prizes for local charities.
