Announcing the Keep Driving Foundation

August 1, 2022

Portland, ME – August 1st, 2022. Berlin City Auto Group is proud to announce the establishment of their non-profit organization, the Keep Driving Foundation. The Keep Driving Foundation will allow Berlin City to do more to invest in the communities where we do business by providing access to additional funding that will help build a brighter future for individuals and organizations in need.

The Keep Driving Foundation will continue to support Berlin City’s commitment to education and will allow us to expand upon what we’ve done with the Drive for Education Program®.

The Drive for Education program, established in 2011 set aside a portion of each vehicle sold to support local schools. Through that program Berlin City has been able to give back more than $850,000 to schools in Maine, NH and VT and in recent years also allowed us to partner with local foodbanks to help fight food insecurity.

The Keep Driving Foundation will now set aside a portion of the proceeds from both sales and service to more than double the impact we will be able to have in our communities in the first year alone.

“Our mission has always been to drive change in the communities we serve and to enrich the lives of children and families in need,” said Yegor Malinovskii, President of Berlin City Auto Group. “By establishing the Keep Driving Foundation we are going to be able to have a greater impact by giving our customers and the local community more opportunities to contribute and by continuing to build strong partnerships with local business and other charitable organizations.”

If your organization is doing meaningful work in the areas of education, food insecurity or supporting local families in need, begin the process by submitting a grant application.

At Berlin City we believe every child holds a key to our future. We are committed to supporting opportunities for them to reach their full potential and Keep Driving for a better tomorrow.
