Welcome To The Drive Bigger Event
This summer, drive something bigger than yourself.
Volkswagen is donating to classrooms across the country. Through our collaboration with DonorsChoose.org, we’re supporting teachers and students across the country, and you can help. Come visit Ontario Volkswagen, and drive something bigger than yourself.
Teachers in every community, are forced to spend money out of their own pocket to teach our children. In fact, the average public school teacher spends over $450 on school supplies to fund their classroom projects.*
Volkswagen and Ontario Volkswagen want to help our teachers.
How it Works
Visit Ontario Volkswagen during the Drive Bigger Event, you can receive a gifting card to DonorsChoose.org*, where you’ll select and help fund a classroom project that inspires you.
We invite you down to Ontario VW to participate in the Drive Bigger Event by funding a classroom project of their choice. When you arrive asked to speak to the sales manager on duty and they will hand you your donation card and walk you over to the computer and show you how to select the school and classroom of your choice.

DonorsChoose.org is the leading platform for giving to public schools. Teachers across America use the site to create projects requesting resources their students need, and donors give to the projects that inspire them. Since its founding by a Bronx teacher in 2000, 3.5 million people and partners have given more than $750 million to projects, reaching 30 million students.
The ambition for the Drive Bigger Event is to impact even more classrooms, schools, students
and teachers across the country.
Drive Bigger makes the brand matter.
When you think about it, Drive Bigger is actually grounded in everything we do. It’s the reason our doors make that solid sound when closing them. It’s the reason why our metal is pressed five times instead of the standard four. It’s the reason why we laser weld the seams as opposed to using a rubber seal. With so many reasons like this, you may well think that our cars gave us the idea. And you know what? You might be right.
Someone who drives bigger:
knows that they aren’t theonly person on the road.
is mindful of their ownconsumption.
looks out for the next generation plays their part in the community.
works to level the playing field.
Together, we can all drive something bigger than ourselves.
