Ford Drive 4 UR School/Community
Kitchener Ford / Ford Drive 4 UR School/Community
What is the Drive 4 UR Community Program?
Launched in Canada in 2010, the Drive 4 UR Community program is a Ford sponsored fundraising program. The program is fun and exciting way to engage schools and local community causes in support of their fundraising efforts. Ford dealerships partner with a local school or community organization to conduct a one-day test drive event together. For every valid test drive completed at the event, Ford of Canada donates $20 to the cause up to a maximum donation of $6000. The goal is to reach 300 test drives during this one day event. Kitchener Ford supplies various vehicles from our dealership for test drive purposes at an off-site location, near the dealership, with the support of 2 dealership staff members. You and your team of volunteers are responsible for actively assisting Ford staff during promotion, marketing, pre-registration, test drive and post-registration duties.
Our event goal is simple: 300 eligible test drives for a $6000 donation to your organization. To make this goal a reality though, it takes a team of enthusiastic and energetic volunteers from your organization who are fully committed to promoting and marketing the event weeks before the event day itself. Our most successful events are ones where organizations have actively promoted and created awareness through ongoing marketing initiatives including social medial, radio, newspaper, flyers etc. and who have individual volunteers who have each secured a high volume of pre-registered test-drive participants well before the day of the event.
