About the Drive for Education Program

Berlin City Auto Group and its employees believe every child holds a key to the future. We believe in enriching the lives of children through education and foundational support. We believe in helping to pave their road. That is exactly why the truly special, forward-thinking charity program, Drive for Education, was created. To be considered as part of the program, a local school must submit an online application and personalized essay to Drive for Education that best describes how their school would utilize a donation. Berlin City Auto Group’s Brand Ambassadors, a group of employees that lead the dealerships’ community involvement, evaluate each online application and personalized essay and select the most suitable schools. From each vehicle sold at its 7 locations throughout New England, Berlin City Auto Group gives a portion of the sale to the Drive for Education program.
