DriveWise Auto, a Los Angeles based Charity Driven Auto Buying and Leasing Service is joining The Rock Foundation in its mission to educate, empower and enrich the lives of children worldwide. In doing so, DriveWise Auto will make its Charity Driven services available to The Rock Foundation and as a result will drive donations to the organization, founded by actor Dwayne Johnson, for every vehicle sold or leased to its supporters or any other clients who support its goals.
Founded by social entrepreneurs Adam Slobin and Bryan Weissman, DriveWise Auto is an organization that is trying to make a difference to various not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organizations who provide services to individuals in need on both local and global levels. Donations ranging from $50 to $100 per vehicle are made by DriveWise Auto to the organizations chosen by its clients, or the organizations referring their supporters to DriveWise Auto.
For The Rock Foundation, this effort marks the first of its kind and allows its supporters to benefit the organization through the vehicles that they lease and purchase. DriveWise Auto does not charge any incremental fee or price increase for the donations they make, and its clients are able to purchase or lease vehicles just as competitively as they could elsewhere, only with the additional benefit of community involvement – a simple and compelling concept.
About the new partnership, Katie Kornfield, Executive Director for the Rock Foundation says, “DriveWise Auto’s commitment to charitable giving and making a difference in the community will help us achieve our program goals and mission to create hope and opportunity in the lives of children around the world.”
The Rock Foundation and DriveWise Auto believe that through the availability of this new auto-buying and leasing platform, a significant impact can be made that will create lasting and tangible results in the lives of children.
“We provide a socially responsible way for people to buy and lease their vehicles,” says DriveWise Auto’s President Adam Slobin. “By making a charitable donation for every car we sell or lease regardless of make, model or price, we’re making a difference.” He adds “especially given the current economy where for most not-for-profit organizations, every penny counts.”
DriveWise Auto has an interest in driving fundraising forward for as many charitable organizations as possible and began operations in late 2007. Since that time, more than 75 charitable organizations have received donations.
