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 Stories from Marion Subaru

GOING ABOVE AND BEYOND  –  Amy S

GOING ABOVE AND BEYOND

Marion Subaru is in a class all themselves. They truly believe in giving back to the community without any reservations. Gum Drops, NFP is one of the lucky recipients of their generosity. Back in August, we had a Marion Subaru night at Gum Drops. Michael, James, Nate, Jeremey, Kent, Scott and Tiffany joined us and opened two pallets of food. Gum Drops, NFP is a weekend backpack program that feeds over 1700 at-risk children every week throughout Southern Illinois. We have to open over 20,000 items every week to put in the backpack for these children. So the Subaru crew stepped up to the plate and helped us out so much. Not even that ! ! Cory and Scott meet us at Marion Sam's club every week to help us load and take back the numerous pallets of food to the Gum Drop facility. Then they stick around and help unload and shelve these pallets. We have forged wonderful friendships that now has turned into family. We are extremely blessed and thankful for Marion Subaru.

Marion Subaru Loves to Care

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Gateway Chapter, (LLS) thanks Marion Subaru for their participation in the Subaru Loves to Care Campaign! On July 14th, James Shimkus, Sales Manager and Kent Howerton from Marion Subaru met Olivia Majerchin with LLS, to deliver 80 blankets, 12 Craft Kits, and cards of hope to SIH Cancer Institute in Carterville, IL. Charlene, SIH Business Manager, led the group on a wonderful tour of the facility including: the beautiful Healing Garden – a serene garden with a relaxing waterfall, plants, trees, and benches, the Resource Center where patients and their families can take information on cancer diagnoses and treatments and the Beauty Within Boutique. The boutique is a place where patients can go in to a private room to try out wigs and get them styled. They can get a wig for free, as well as hats and scarves made by people in the community. One of the best stops was the Reflection Garden, a great pond and walking path with benches, flowers, and trees. Patients in the infusion center have a full view of this area while they are receiving treatment. There is art just about everywhere you look and 95% is from local southern Illinois artists. SIH Cancer Institute is clearly a caring community and COMMUNITY is a core value of the Subaru Promise and the LLS Mission. Charlene thanked Subaru for their generous donation. She said blankets are the number 1 request by patients visiting doctors or getting treatment, the blankets will go to great use!
