Ford and General Mills = BONUS #boxtops !

Ford, General Mills Come Together to Help America’s Schools, partner in Box Tops for Education® program

You all know I love Box Tops.  I do.  Send me yours and I'll be forever grateful :) Ford is now partnering with General Mills for a Box Tops promotion.

Starting Oct. 3, participants can earn and collect Box Tops for their local school in three new ways.  They can request a brochure from the official Ford/BTFE program website at; watch product videos on the program website; or purchase a Ford vehicle at dealerships during October and November. 

·         Ford is the first automotive company to partner with General Mills’ Box Tops for Education® program

·         Ford estimates it will provide more than $1 million dollars to schools during the two-month program through box top redemptions

·         America’s schools have earned more than $400 million through Box Tops for Education® since the General Mills program started in 1996; Ford has donated more than $100 million to education in the same time frame.

       I am on the Box Tops for Education site everyday entering to win bonus Box Tops because our school could really use the money.  Schools WILL win big money. Why not ours (or yours)?   During the two-month “Ford Drives Box Tops” Sweepstakes, Ford will provide sweepstakes winners with eBoxTops, which will be automatically credited to the school of their choice. Five 10,000 Box Top prizes worth $1,000 and one 200,000 Box Tops prize worth $20,000 will be given to the BTFE-eligible school of the winner’s choice at the end of the Sweepstakes. Schools can use the money in any way they choose.

As schools struggle to find funding, local communities are turning to corporate programs such Box Tops for Education and Ford’s Drive One 4 UR School program to fill budget gaps.  Supporting education has been a key tenant of Ford since the company’s inception. Through its history, Ford has created a variety of programs dedicated to improving schools in communities across America, donating more than $100 million to education in just the past 15 years.

The Drive One 4 UR School program was developed as a fun, engaging way to help high schools raise money to support their sports and extracurricular activities. Ford and Lincoln Dealerships partner with local high schools to conduct test-drive fund raising events. For every valid test-drive completed, Ford Motor Company will donate $20 to the participating high school, up to $6,000.  Since the program’s inception in 2007, more than $7 million in funds have been donated to high schools nationwide.
The high school in which my husband teaches and coaches had a Drive One 4 UR School event last year bringing in much needed funds for the athletic department.  Both the Ford and General Mills education initiatives are bringing real dollars to our school when they need it the most.   Help your local school by joining with them.
