What is the Subaru Love Promise?

Subaru and our retailers believe in making the world a better place and the Subaru Love Promise is our vision of respecting all people. This is our commitment to show love and respect to our customers and to work to make a positive impact in the world.

The Subaru Love Promise Community Commitment

We at Subaru of America stay true to the Love Promise by partnering with a wide variety of nonprofits and charities. In addition to these partnerships, every year Subaru, our owners, and our retailers join hands in the "Share the Love" event, giving back to charities across the country. Over the past 20 years, Subaru of America has donated over 50 million dollars to causes we care about, and logged over 28,000 volunteer hours.

All of the organizations we support have one thing in common: the unwavering dedication to improve the world and the lives of its people.

The charities' varying focuses and passions include:

Pets

Whether they live in our homes or in the wild, Subaru is committed to keeping all animals safe and healthy.

A partner since 2008, Subaru has donated close to $14 million to the ASPCA and helped support nearly 1,000 pet adoption events, resulting in more than 11,500 adoptions to date.

Environment

Loving the environment means more than loving the great outdoors. It means working to preserve it.

Over a decade ago, Subaru became the first U.S. auto manufacturer to become zero-landfill, and now, in collaboration with the National Park Service and the National Parks Conservation Association, Subaru is leveraging that same environmental expertise to help the National Parks reach zero-landfill too.

Education

It’s our goal to make the pursuit of knowledge available to as many minds as possible.

Total donations to teachers: $92,233
Over 200 teachers adopted
More than 15,000 students impacts

Community

In a perfect world, hunger would be history and hope would be commonplace. We believe a perfect world is possible.

Subaru and Meals on Wheels America worked together to make volunteering easier, by launching a tool called the Meals on Wheels Online Volunteer Drive.

Health

We should all have a chance to lead a healthy life. We’re aiming to give as many people that chance as we can.

Subaru has donated more than $4.5 million dollars to
Make A Wish, helping to grant 610 wishes in the U.S.

Subaru Share the Love  –  Tayler B

Subaru's Share the Love campaign was Nov. 15, 2018, thru Jan. 2, 2019. For each new vehicle sold during that time frame, Subaru donated $250 to a local charity. For this campaign, Dwayne Lane’s Skagit Subaru’s hometown charity was Community Action of Skagit County. This campaign collected $14,038 and the money raised will help pay the lease of a new veteran’s center opening in Burlington, WA to expand Community Action’s services. Community Action of Skagit County's mission is to foster and advocate for self-sufficiency among low-income people in Skagit County. They have been serving the community since 1993 and served over 350 veterans in 2018. They support 18 inter-related core programs that stabilize lives and equip people to move out of poverty and collaborate with the community to create ongoing pathways to prosperity. Community Action is not merely a nonprofit social service agency. While many of its programs meet the basic needs of people struggling to make ends meet, the purpose is to alleviate poverty and help people attain a level of self-sufficiency.
