Ford is committed to making sure every teacher has the resources they need. That’s why we created the Drive 4 UR School program in 2007. It provides funding to schools so that teachers and parents don’t have to fill the gap. To date, Drive 4 UR School has donated more than $45,000,000 to schools nationwide. And this year, in honor of Teacher Appreciation Week and to support schools serving low-income communities, we increased our commitment.
Ford funded $1,000,000 worth of classroom resource requests through DonorsChoose, a nonprofit that provides teachers a platform to receive funding for learning materials. It was a tremendous success, so thank you to all our virtual drivers, and of course, all the amazing teachers who go the extra mile every day.
