Test Drive a Ford, Help a High School
Just test-drive a Ford at the Drive 4 UR School event at St. Vincent Pallotti High School this weekend and you can help your local high school raise funds!
The Drive 4 UR School program is not a new concept – it’s actually a five-year-old initiative that has already raised more than $10 million through nearly 3,000 events. Schools have used this money to fund educational programs ranging from athletics to music, even to fix damages from natural disasters!
We will provide the vehicles for test-drives, while St. Vincent Pallotti High School helps organize the event. We have both worked together to get the word out to our community. For every valid test-drive completed, Ford will donate $20 to the high school, up to $6,000.

Here are just a few of so many stories where Ford and Drive One 4 UR School have made a difference for other participating high schools:
O’Connell College Preparatory School, Galveston Island, TX (partnering with Classic Ford): The residents of Galveston Island are still trying to fully recover from Hurricane Ike, which struck in 2008. O’Connell College Preparatory School lost millions of dollars in books, technology, equipment, furniture, fixtures and vehicles, and damages were caused to the school’s library, cafeteria and locker rooms.
Prestonburg High School, Ivel, KY (partnering with Freedom Ford): In early spring, a few schools in the Prestonburg area were badly damaged by tornadoes. Prestonburg High School forfeited its scheduled Drive One 4 UR School event and instead donated their event to neighboring Magoffin County High School which required financial assistance to recover from storm damages. To recognize the generosity of Prestonburg High School, Ford granted Freedom Ford a second event to benefit Prestonburg High School.
