The Dodge brand is reaching out to local high school booster clubs across the country to coordinate test drives for fundraising efforts with the launch of the “Dodge Brand Booster Club Fundraiser.” The fundraising effort is designed to provide support for student enrichment activities at the high school level.

“Music, art, athletics and theater inspire and foster a passion for life and provide a creative outlet that benefits students,” said Ralph Gilles, President and CEO, Dodge Brand, Chrysler Group LLC. “The launch of the Dodge Booster Club Fundraiser will give high schools an opportunity to raise money for their extracurricular activities in a fun and unique way without any sales pressure. The Dodge brand and our dealers are committed to the communities where we do business and support organizations that encourage student development and growth.”

The Dodge Brand Booster Club Fundraiser connects Dodge dealers with local high school booster clubs to help with their fundraising efforts. The Dodge brand will donate $20 for each test drive taken, and the clubs can earn up to $2,000 per event. Sales staff and personnel from the participating dealership will be on-hand to assist with the fundraising event and answer any questions about the vehicles. Test drive participants will be able to drive the new 2011 Dodge Durango, 2011 Dodge Journey and 2011 Dodge Grand Caravan without any sales pressure. Anyone age 21 or over, with a valid drivers’ license, may drive and earn a donation for the participating school.
