Cityside Subaru of Belmont donated $25,033 to the Foundation for Belmont Education (FBE) as part of the nation-wide Subaru Share the Love program. Cityside Subaru selected the FBE, for a fifth year, as their local non-profit organization to benefit from the Subaru Share the Love program. This year, Subaru of America donated more than $35 million to national and local charities, for a total of $140 million throughout the history of the campaign.
“Cityside Subaru is truly committed to Belmont. Our partnership with the Foundation for Belmont Education enables us to positively impact the entire Belmont community. By supporting the FBE, we support Belmont’s amazing teachers and students – truly the heart of Belmont,” said Nathan White, General Manager, Cityside Subaru.
In addition to the traditional Share the Love program donation, Cityside Subaru generously offered an extra discount to all Belmont Public School teachers and staff who purchased a car 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. In addition to their contributions through the Share the Love program, Cityside Subaru has served as the primary sponsor of the FBE’s annual Dan Scharfman Memorial Run and, beginning in 2017, provided a pace car, driven by Dealer and Principal, Rick White, to lead the runners. To date, Cityside Subaru has donated more than $135,000 to the FBE. “We are extremely thankful for Cityside Subaru’s commitment to the FBE and to the Belmont Public Schools. Cityside is instrumental in helping us reach our goal of enriching the Belmont Public Schools through the funding of innovative and enriching programs,” said Stacey Conroy, VP of Fundraising for the FBE.
