Drive For Schools Annual Car Giveaway Fundraiser

About Drive For Schools

Drive For Schools, founded in 2005 by Subaru of Santa Cruz and now sponsored by the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, Subaru of Santa Cruz and Toyota of Santa Cruz, has successfully raised more than $5.4 million for Santa Cruz County schools through an annual car giveaway.

Last year, participating schools raised $715,000.

All elementary, middle and high schools in Santa Cruz County are invited to participate. This year, more schools than ever have chosen to participate in this amazing event. Best of all, each participating school keeps every dollar they earn AND they decide how best to spend the money.
