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 Irvine Subaru

Subaru Loves to Care  –  Yvette S

Subaru Loves to Care

On July 12, 2017 Irvine Kaiser Hospital and their department of Adult Hematology/Oncology Infusion Center hosted the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society & Irvine Subaru for the delivery of blankets and craft kits. Two volunteers from Irvine Subaru, California attended the event along with one LLS staff. For the purpose of delivering the blankets to cancer patients as well as bringing a smile to their face. We were able to hand deliver the blankets and craft kits to about 10 patients undergoing their chemotherapy treatment on site. All of the cancer patients were super thrilled to have us there and were truly thankful for Irvine Subaru for doing such a great gesture. The patients interacted with the Subaru staff and even one of the families there said: “My son just purchased a Subaru at your Irvine location and were super happy with the customer service that they received, now my other son wants to go back and purchase one as they are really great cars.” The two Irvine Subaru staff members also shared that cancer just reached their home and that they were very excited to be able to do this small gesture as they feel that they need to give back to the community. The presence of LLS and Irvine Subaru helped provide a resource and a gentle reminder that survivors and family members have a social support network that they can connect with beyond their immediate family during their cancer journey.

Irvine Subaru & the Butterfly Heroes Program  –  Sergio S

Irvine Subaru & the Butterfly Heroes Program

Over the winter months, monarch butterflies in Mexico begin to make the journey north to the United States in early spring. Soon after they leave Mexico, pairs of monarch’s mate. As they reach the southern United States, females will look for available milkweed plants to lay eggs. Monarchs are truly spectacular migrants, because the butterflies know the correct direction to migrate even though they have never made the journey before. They follow an internal "compass" that points them in the right direction each spring and fall. The monarch migration is one of the greatest natural phenomena in the insect world. Here's where Irvine Subaru is here to help. We have partnered with the National Wildlife to help these majestic creatures combat rapidly declining populations in recent years. In the month of April as part of the Subaru Loves the Earth initiative, Irvine Subaru installed a butterfly habitat planter on-site. The planter is full of milkweed to help these beautiful monarchs lay their eggs. We also handed out milkweed packets and information to customer to create their own butterfly garden at home!

Love Promise August Education - Trabuco Hills High

Irvine Subaru Proudly Supports Local Educators! On August 22, 2015, Irvine Subaru adopted the class of Lindsey Casserly, an avid Subaru enthusiast. Her AP History students have a demanding academic course load, but are also required to fulfill even more components outside of the classroom. Lindsey's passion for her community, her students, and adventure shines through her teaching style, and she puts these into practice by having her students participate in community events and service. Lindsey is dedicated to helping her students through their research process and through their service to our community in any way she can. Irvine Subaru was moved by Lindsey's passion and wanted to support her staunch devotion to teaching students how to not only be great at school, but to give back to their community. To support these lifelong lessons that Lindsey is instilling in her students, Irvine Subaru has given her and her students a donation in order to purchase laptops and a printer for her classroom. These necessary technologies will help Lindsey and her students create their research and service projects to help society grow in a positive direction. Irvine Subaru is dedicated to serving our community and furthering the education of our future leaders. Lindsey was so appreciative of our donation and wanted to let us know that she and her husband love their Subaru's!

Irvine Subaru welcomed Subaru's Love Promise campaign by hosting the Love the Earth E-Waste program.

Irvine Subaru Proudly Support Kiwanis Club

Kiwanis Club is the nonprofit that is trying to establish a permanent facility for a chapter of the Boys and Girls Club in Lake Forest, CA. Irvine Subaru, located in the city of Lake Forest, is trying to support the cause by having The Kiwanis Club as one of our 2014 Share the love Charities and support them in their local events to raise monies for the permanent facility.
