Cityside Subaru of Belmont and Subaru of America donated $12,146 to the Foundation for Belmont Education (FBE) as part of the Subaru Share the Love program. The Foundation for Belmont Education is the first local non-profit organization to benefit from this program. In 2015, Subaru of America will donate $15 million to charities across the United States.
Under the Share the Love program, consumers who purchased or leased a vehicle during the promotion could select the FBE as their charity of choice. Each time the FBE was designated, Subaru of America donated $250 to the FBE. Cityside Subaru generously matched all donations. “We are excited to give back to the Belmont community and to support the excellent work of the FBE,” said Rick White, Dealer and Principal of Cityside Subaru. “We are incredibly impressed with the work the FBE does for the Belmont Schools and their focus not only on students, but teachers as well.” In addition to the traditional Share the Love program, Cityside Subaru offered a discount to all Belmont teachers who purchased cars during the promotion.
Cityside Subaru is one of the FBE’s Investors in Education — businesses that donate more than $5,000 annually to the Foundation. They were also the primary sponsor of the FBE’s Dan Scharfman Memorial Race held in October 2014. “We can’t thank Cityside Subaru enough for including us as their first local charity in the Share the Love program. The FBE’s partnership with Cityside Subaru is reflective of how the Belmont community is coming together to make a difference in the Belmont Public Schools,” said Jamie Shea, FBE President.
