Ford Motor Company and Dealers to Raise Record-Setting $1
Million for High Schools in April

DEARBORN, Mich., April 4, 2012 – Educational budget cuts are common, forcing schools in every state to either eliminate valued programs or search for other means of funding. To address these needs at a local level and empower communities to support and protect valued programs, Ford Motor Company and its dealers partner with high schools across the United States to offer the Drive One 4 UR School program. This initiative has raised more than $10 million through nearly 3,000 events since its inception in 2007, and provides up to $6,000 per school through test drives of Ford products. More than 1,150 dealers have partnered with their local high schools to participate in the program and the funds raised can be applied to any area where the school needs support – athletics, music, even to fix damages from natural disasters.

In April, Ford, its dealers and high schools will attempt to raise a record-setting $1 million in a single month through more than 300 Drive One 4 UR School events throughout the U.S. “The Drive One 4 UR School program was developed as a fun, engaging way to help high schools raise and apply money where they need it, and we realized that if we really applied our efforts in April, we could make a greater difference than ever before,” said Tracy Magee, Ford Experiential Marketing Manager. “Our dealers really shine here in going above and beyond to
serve their communities by joining with local high schools to raise money and protect important programs and services.”

How Drive One 4 UR School events work:
For each Drive One 4 UR School event, Ford and Lincoln dealers work with a local high school to schedule a test drive fundraising event. The dealers provide the cars to be test-driven, the high school organizes the event itself, and both work together to get the word out to their community. For every valid test drive completed, Ford Motor Company donates $20 to the participating high school, up to $6,000.

About Ford Motor Company:

With about 164,000 employees and about 70 plants worldwide, the company’s automotive brands include Ford and Lincoln. The company provides financial services through Ford Motor Credit Company.

"Drive One 4UR School" 

2011

 Members of the Smoky Mountain High School football team and cheerleading squad along with Principal Jay Grissom; Andy Shaw Ford General Manager, Larry Hinton; and dealership staff members gather around a newly designed 2012 Ford Focus

Once again Andy Shaw Ford of Sylva has been able to bring Ford Motor Company’s “Drive One 4UR School” Program to Jackson County. On October 7 the event will be held at Smoky Mountain High School from 8 AM to 6 PM. This year the potential for increased funding is significantly higher than years past. The basic formula will still be used: a $20 donation will be made by Andy Shaw Ford and Ford Motor Company for each of the first 300 test drives of a new Ford vehicle. However, if 200 of those same drivers take an additional test drive in the newly redesigned 2012 Focus an additional $2000 will be donated. During that same time frame students will be producing a video which features the new Focus and if chosen as a winner, the School can win an additional $7000 for a total of $15,000. “I am really excited about this year’s program and the increased funding,” said Larry Hinton, General Manager of Andy Shaw Ford. “It’s a great way for our High School to get some desperately needed money,” he added. Principal Jay Grissom echoed Hinton’s remarks when he said, “We can certainly put the money, all $15,000 of it, to good use.”

All community members are encouraged to come out on the 7th and Drive One 4 “Their” School.
