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.



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 over $28 million to the ASPCA and through Subaru Loves Pets has helped support the rescue, transport, adoption, and well-being of over 230,000 animals across the country.



Subaru and our retailers are committed to protecting and preserving the Earth, not just by our words, but also by our actions.

Since 2018, as part of the Subaru Loves the Earth initiative, Subaru and retailers across the country have partnered with TerraCycle® and have collected over 7 million pieces of hard-to-recycle trash from their communities. Items such as snack bag wrappers, coffee cups, or used cabin air filters from service areas have been diverted from landfills and given a second life by TerraCycle when it is converted into durable furniture and other usable items.



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

Since 2015 Subaru, in partnership with the American Association for the Advancement Science, donated over 369,000 award-winning science books. In addition, through our partnerships with Staples and we supported teachers and students with donations of $400,000 in gift cards and school supplies.



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

In 2020, Subaru and its retailers made a donation to Feeding America to provide 50 million meals to help feed people in need during the COVID-19 crisis,* making meals available at 199 local food banks across the country.

*$1 helps provide at least 10 meals secured by Feeding America on behalf of local member food banks.



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

Since 2016, Subaru and its retailers have partnered with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) to donate over 167,000 blankets and 21,500 arts & crafts kits and reached nearly 150,000 patients in more than 780 hospitals nationwide.

Stanford Health Care | Stanford Medicine

Kevin Wong was struck with cancer in 2009. Despite his diagnosis, Kevin continued to work as the general manager of a nearby Subaru dealership. Well loved by his customers and staff, he barely missed a day of work. After five years of multiple operations, extensive treatment and slow and painful recoveries, Kevin's cancer unfortunately did not go into remission. When he knew the end was near, Kevin hoped to accomplish one more thing - show his appreciation for the nurses at the Infusion Center at Stanford Cancer Center ITA. These nurses primarily care for Stage 3 and Stage 4 patients through the roughest part of their treatments. A shining light for these patients, forever present through the darkest days, a constant comfort and giver of encouragement. For these nurses, everyday is hard, but they always answer the bell. The Wong Family Foundation at Stanford Health Care was formed, where 100% of the funds benefit the nurses to pursue educational opportunities, wellness seminars and team building exercises. In short, a fund to thank these special nurses for their dedication and care. Albany Subaru has chosen them as our local charity since the beginning of the Hometown Charity program, and have continued to support them with a dollar for dollar match with Subaru of America resulting in a donation of $500 for each new Subaru sold during the annual Share The Love Event. We feel it's a small thank you for these great health care professionals, courtesy of Kevin Wong. Last year, we were able to raise over $120,000 for these nurses that were with Kevin till the very end. Help us help them this year and enjoy your new Subaru!
