(Bradenton, Fla., August 6, 2019)
Volkswagen of America has pledged $1 million in donations to help fund educational needs through DonorsChoose.org + and Bob Boast Volkswagen (https://www.boastvw.com/) will match the $20 pledge card donation when the donation is made at the dealership.
As part of their Drive Bigger campaign, Volkswagen of America has committed to helping drive education forward by making it easier for classroom teachers to get basic supplies or educational materials and opportunities for their students, by furnishing $20 donation cards (while supplies last) to be used on the DonorsChoose.org website (https://www.donorschoose.org/).
Boast VW has committed to matching the $20 donation for any card obtained at and processed in the dealership, located at 4827 14th St. West in Bradenton.
Boast VW President Steve Bierwirth encourages teachers in the Bradenton area to get their donation requests posted to the website soon, as the site’s searchable database will allow local donors to easily find and help fund local educational needs.
“We’re thrilled about this opportunity to support our local educators in their efforts to help educate our young people,” Bierwirth said. “It fits right in with our commitment to help build a stronger community.”
Founded in 2000 by a history teacher from the Bronx, DonorsChoose.org has helped over 4 million donors fund 1.5 million projects, assisting over 500,000 teachers and benefitting 35+ million students. Projects include purchasing basic classroom supplies, materials or equipment, and funding educational and cultural appreciation programs.
