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.

Parkdale Elementary (Waco ISD)  –  Wendy M

“I am so excited! I finally have a real Science library with books the kids want to read!” was the response of our Science teacher, as we were gifted with class sets of current Science books courtesy of Subaru’s Love of Learning Program and our local dealership-Douglass Subaru. The books were handpicked by our campus Science guru during the Summer Break but when they were delivered in early October it was an early Christmas gift. The Assistant Principal Wendy Moulds met the Douglass Subaru representatives with all smiles and open arms, as she knew this would make the difference between the hohum Science texts of last year to students reading near interactive content, as the photos and illustrations brought the words to life. What a great addition to both our library and especially to our Science classes. The reading level is varied to cover beyond our 5th grade students with the engagement level being high, as they are written with kids in mind. From boogers to soil to a zoology text, these books have covered the gamut to give our students an upper hand in Science and in themselves. These sources will open worlds to our kids including possible career options! Options and knowledge given to us by Douglass Subaru’s generous donation to our school. One can hear many a “WOW” plus see students getting the very most of this award as botany was explained in the most interesting hands on way plus a group of younger students were turning each page with anticipation as they learned about global animals. One student is contemplating the use of the text to develop her Spring Science Fair entry. This is what learning is all about-kids taking the lead with educators providing sources and elaboration to make the learning a true journey of discovery far beyond the classroom and into the world via these concise and clear books on the various sciences. New, engaging and up to date reading material provided to supplement the textbooks, as is Subaru’s goal with its Love of Learning Program. Parkdale students have reaped a great window into STEM Science with reading about so many topics but always in a kid centered theme. Parkdale is grateful to Subaru’s commitment to students nationwide but especially to us in Waco, Texas! Our local Subaru dealer is Douglass, their promise to the community is further shown crystal clear with their philanthropy to Parkdale’s students. They have given books but more importantly a world of opportunity. Huge thanks to Brent Brendemuehl and his team for choosing Parkdale as their school for the 2019-2020 award!


Miracle Match Marathon 2019  –  Nancy G

What a wonderful weekend of running for an incredible cause, BE THE MATCH! Douglass Subaru's support of our event made it all possible- 1500 participants from the ages of 3 to 83 realized their goals as they crossed the finish line of the best race courses in Texas. Subaru vehicles were there to see them off at the start and see them cross that all-important finish line! Douglass personnel, including Brent Brendemuehl, worked the entire weekend helping to support the event. The personalized race bibs with the Douglass logo are true collector's items for our volunteers. We are so grateful for your support! Nancy Goodnight Debbie Mabry
