(NAPSI)—Keeping America’s schools and students on the road to success is no easy task. Teachers, students and school officials often find themselves scrambling to raise funds with little monetary support at the local level.

Fortunately, one of the best-known carmakers in the world is once again stepping up and helping out. For the past 19 years, the Chrysler brand has supported the enrichment of schools in the communities where it does business, contributing over $4 million since its start.

For instance, through its “Drive for the Kids™” fundraising initiative, the carmaker uses its local dealerships to coordinate with parents and teachers to host fundraisers in support of the enrichment of America’s schools.

Making A Contribution

Each year, Chrysler coordinates 300 local fundraisers across the country. Many of these events earn several thousands of dollars that go toward a variety of school initiatives, such as equipment and books, and offset the costs of various student events.

In addition, the school earns a $10 contribution for each test-drive taken in a 2012 Chrysler Town & Country minivan-a vehicle ranked highest in customer loyalty 11 years in a row.

A Chance To Win

Attendees who register for more vehicle information or participate in one or more test-drives are entered automatically into the Chrysler Group national giveaway for a chance to win $45,000 toward any eligible Chrysler Group vehicle.

Plus, the five schools that have the most test-drives this year will win $5,000 for their school.
