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 believe in being a positive force in something bigger. And it all starts right here in our community. Not just by our donations, but by our actions.

That's why we stay true to our Love Promise Community Commitment by partnering with a wide variety of community nonprofits and charities.

Every year, we join hands with our owners in the "Share the Love" event, giving back to our community-a community that's given so much to us.

So, every day, we strive to ensure our love is felt not just by our customers, but by all in our community. We do this because we feel it is the right thing to do.

We are proud to participate in the Love Promise Community Commitment. We're grateful, not only to be a part of our community, but to serve and support the causes and passions that are closest to our hearts, right here in our neighborhood.

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

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.

Love Promise Distribution  –  Daniela H

Love Promise Distribution

We had the privilege to partner with Dan Perkins Subaru and distribute 80 beautiful blankets and 12 craft kits to cancer patients at Milford Hospital. We were honored to have one of our volunteers who is a survivor himself and volunteer for 6+ years and someone who is family to us at the CTWHV chapter. Charles was in that day volunteering and figured it would be an honor to have him join me deliver these blankets, craft kits, and cards of hope to the hospital. As Charles and I arrived to the hospital we were greeted by Karen Kipfer, Director of Community Relations and Karl Schmidt, Oncologist at the Milford Hospital. They were grateful for the amazing gift from Subaru to give to all the cancer patients!

A note from our Local Share The Love organization: Due to the money we raised... “It is incredible.....we have a total of 8 families totaling 8 adults and 11 children. We are now in the process of connecting each family with the resources that they need for employment, pre-school, unification with children that are not in their current care, counseling, disability benefits, GED and higher learning classes. We have a waiting list of 50 families at this time. We are awaiting the details from TD BANK. The Helping Hands Street program feeds the homeless every Sunday. We are providing Companion Care to the Elderly. We are working with the housing authority and city to acquire and rehab 2 to 3 family homes for the women and children to transition to once they have completed the Helping Hands Supportive Housing Program. We will start The Helping Hands Share The Love Newsletter. We passed out 425 book-bags filled with school supplies. Our Energy Information Session has helped 150 families pay their electric bill. We see the powerful impact that we are having in the community. The next few months are critical as we are writing grants, raising dollars and awareness with the hope of creating bills that will get passed into law to eliminate homelessness. We hope that all we have been able to accomplish will make you and the Subaru family proud.” Respectfully, Chiquita Helping Hands Outreach
