THIS YEAR, SUBARU’S SHARE THE LOVE PROGRAM BROUGHT IN $37,997 FOR THE FBE! This is Cityside Subaru’s biggest check awarded to date, and the FBE can’t thank them enough for valuing education in Belmont and making a tremendous difference in the Belmont Public Schools. Christa Bauge, FBE President describes the incredibly generous donation, “This wonderful contribution comes at a significant time for the FBE and our town’s public schools, as we all navigate through the current pandemic. Cityside Subaru is truly helping to make a difference in our community.”
For the sixth year, Cityside Subaru selected the FBE as their local non-profit organization to benefit from the nation-wide Subaru Share the Love program. This is Subaru of America’s 12th year running this campaign, and they are on track to bring their total donations to over $170 million to national and local charities. Congratulations Subaru!
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, they serve as the primary sponsor of the FBE’s Apple Run (formerly the Dan Scharfman Memorial Run), and beginning in 2017, provided a pace car, driven by Cityside Subaru GM, Rick White, to lead the runners. We are so grateful for their unwavering support, especially while current funding sources are interrupted. “Cityside Subaru has been an incredible supporter of the Foundation for Belmont Education. Since their first gift in 2013, they have donated more than $200,000 to the FBE which has directly enriched the education of all students in the Belmont public schools. We are very grateful for their generous support and investment in our students’ educations,” said Martha Brown, FBE VP Fundraising.
