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.

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 Annapolis Subaru

Books and Backpacks, Oh My!  –  Christina L

Books and Backpacks, Oh My!

Annapolis Subaru provided a wonderful collection of books and backpacks for our students. The books are wonderful with topics that will be of high interest to our students. They will be used for our Birthday Book Club and our mobile library. The backpacks and supplies are always needed. Thanks for your generosity and for thinking of our school. We were in need of new books so the timing was perfect! The donation will support our "Culture of Literacy". The staff & students of Annapolis Elementary School thank you, Annapolis Subaru.


Comfort Blankets and Messages presented to AAMC  –  Sheronda B

Comfort Blankets and Messages presented to AAMC

The Annapolis Subaru team visited the Anne Arundel Medical Center’s DeCesaris Cancer Institute with AAMC Board members and representatives of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Maryland Chapter to present 80 blankets and care cards to keep patients warm while undergoing treatment. Because Leukemia is the most common form of cancer in children, a case of art and craft kits were presented for kids in treatment. Of course, this would not have been possible without the support of our amazing and caring Annapolis Subaru customers. Those that attended this presentation included Jan Wood, AAMC Foundation President and Chief Development Officer, Dr. Barry Meisenberg, Executive Medical Director of AAMC’s DeCesaris Cancer Institute, Pat Wergin, AAMC Foundation Board Member and Building Tradition’s Society Chair and Annapolis Subaru, VP, Staff from AAMC’s DeCesaris Cancer Institute and Infusion Therapy Center, Michelle Eichhorn, Annapolis, and Stephanie Gale, Campaign Manager, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society – MD. Also, in attendance, a special survivor, LLS volunteer, and AAMC board of trustee, Gary Jobson. In 2003, after years of committed service on behalf of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Jobson was diagnosed with lymphoma and, in his words, "became a beneficiary of the research advances I had helped support." He is now cancer-free and is the National Chairman of the Leukemia Cup Regatta, LLS’s sailing program, since 1993.


Subaru and NWF Loves the Earth  –  Catherine H

Subaru and NWF Loves the Earth

The students at Mills-Parole Elementary were so happy to have partnered with Subaru and the National Wildlife Federations Garden For Wildlife. We loved planting our garden and learning about how our garden will help the environment. The 4th grade students were involved in planting our beautiful greenery. They also installed the garden elements that will help support and protect the animals that live around our school community. For many of our students this was their first time gardening and birding, and they enjoyed every minute of it. We have even observed many of the animals that have visited our garden such as: butterflies, blue jays, woodpeckers, cardinals, and even frogs! We are so very proud of our garden and have bought supplies with our gift card that will help us continue to build and tend the garden in the future. We would love to win an assembly to learn from wildlife ambassadors and David Mizejewski on how to better care for our garden, and our world, as wildlife ambassadors of the future. "


Hometown Charity  –  Joan M

There are no words to express how appreciative I am to the Annapolis Subaru team for all of the support during The Summit School's time as a hometown charity. We are so grateful that you were able to join us yesterday when we received the BIG check from the Share The Love event! All of the proceeds from the Share The Love Event will benefit our school's scholarship fund. Some of our families rely heavily on tuition assistance in order for their children to be able to attend Summit, an you have helped that effort enormously through your generosity. Thank you again!

Annapolis Subaru Fills a Forester with Love  –  Michele M

Annapolis Subaru Fills a Forester with Love

The Light House is fortunate to have many generous partners from throughout the community who donate their time, goods and services, as well as support The Light House with financial resources. Each partner plays a significant role in the success of the mission of the Light House on an on-going basis. Annapolis Subaru has partenered with the Light House for catering through the Culinary Arts Program of our Building Employment Success Training (B.E.S.T.) Their willingness to hire the Light House students for these events gives our students an awesome opportunity to experience field work and interact with their community. Most recently Annapolis Subaru reached out to us for a partnership during their "Subaru Loves to Help" month. Our shelter food donations are historically low during the summer months. In an effort to help boost donations, Annapolis Subaru hosted a food drive during the month of June. They challenged their customers and employees to "Fill a Forester" with canned goods and non-perishables. They succeeded in their challenge and to our surprise also made a monetary donation when they dropped off the collected goods. Our partnership with Annapolis Subaru has been invaluable and we look forward to their promise of continued support.

This is equivalent to saving 120 trees, 531 gallons of gasoline, 4,521 plastic bottles, and 20,792 aluminum cans. Thank you for helping strengthen the Subaru Love Promise!


Making Summer Camp Awesome  –  Andrew M

Making Summer Camp Awesome

Our relationship with Annapolis Subaru is by far one of the most positive relationship we have ever had with an organization. They have helped to enhance the experience our Summer Campers, Family Campers and Retreat Center participants have at our facility. Their donation of kayaks and canoes have helped our Campers see the beauty of our waterfront up close and personal. The new gaga ball pit and Frisbee golf course have created new friendships and encouraged play in areas of Camp that we wanted to grow. They helped us save our Zip line when the repairs would have delayed many young campers a huge smile from zooming through the trees. Their financial support has helped hundreds of first time campers get an experience of independence and personal growth through our scholarship program. Our relationship with Annapolis Subaru has helped YMCA Camp Letts to be so much more to our community, and to the children and families we serve. We are forever grateful for their support.

Share the Love- Olivia Constants Foundation  –  Steve C

Share the Love- Olivia Constants Foundation

To appreciate the great relationship that we the (Olivia Constants Foundation, Inc. (OCF)) have with Annapolis Subaru, we first go to Salt Lake City where we were spending some time during the Christmas holiday break. We had the TV on the Utah station, and saw the Subaru "Share the Love" commercial on with the focus on the four national charities. We chuckled, thinking, it was odd to see the commercial without the mention of the local charity, our charity, OCF, even though we knew we were 2000 miles away in a different market. Later, we learned that not every store has a local charity they want to support, which gave us a renewed appreciation for our relationship with Annapolis Subaru and Executive Vice President Patrick Wergin. Back here in Annapolis MD, this years "Share the Love" campaign with the inclusion of OCF has been so memorable on so many levels. So many people have come up to us to share the joy and encouragement of knowing OCF is the local charity of choice for Annapolis Subaru. Partnering with us to help support our scholarship programs and our anti-bullying efforts within the local public schools, Annapolis Subaru has embraced our vision to do all we can, for whomever we can, in the spirit of Olivia. It seems like everyone in our community knows that Subaru & OCF has this wonderful partnership.


Annapolis Subaru helps conserve the Bay  –  Patrick W

Annapolis Subaru helps conserve the Bay

We all live in places that we think are special. Places that are beautiful, or historical, or unique in some way. Here in Maryland, the Chesapeake Bay is what makes this region so exceptional to so many people. Every day, we soak in the beauty of the Bay. We swim in its waters. We eat its crabs. We watch a sunset along the banks of its rivers. And we drive our cars along its bridges and roadways and side streets. But the Bay is in trouble. It's polluted. There's too much trash, too many people living here, too much growth and debris. We've made a mess of something wonderful, and that's why groups like the Chesapeake Bay Trust exist. Annapolis Subaru is there to help the Trust make a difference. They teamed up with us to "Share the Love" because they believe in community. They believe everyone can make a difference and make our world a better place to live. Their support has helped the Trust plant thousands of trees, restore shorelines, and pick up tons and tons of trash. Together, we are making real strides toward improving the Chesapeake Bay and restoring our waters. Partners like Annapolis Subaru are what make real change happen.


Annapolis Subaru creates a life long relationship  –  Julie L

Annapolis Subaru creates a life long relationship

Thanks Annapolis Subaru When my car from college died on me, I started looking for a new one. I wanted to make the right decision. I had always been curious about Subaru. I live in Silver Spring, MD, and have a few dealerships to choose from. I felt the most comfortable at the Annapolis Subaru. They treated me like family right when I walked through the door. I knew I wanted an SUV and test-drove the Forester, which was perfect for me - enough space for friends to ride along for random trips to the beach or up to Deep Creek for a snowboarding trip, or afternoon adventures to the park with my two dogs. The seats are easy to adjust, which makes it easy for my 30-pound dog that thinks she's a lap dog to move around from the back seats to the front seat. Not only is Annapolis Subaru like family now, but Subaru itself sends me monthly emails about upcoming events in my area. I know I have a long time until I have to purchase another car, but I know without a doubt it will be a Subaru! Thanks Annapolis Subaru for continuing to make this purchase so memorable and worth it! - Julie Lyst Subaru Forester owner since 2011


Annapolis Subaru brings together a community of enthusiasts  –  Jon C

Annapolis Subaru brings together a community of enthusiasts

Keep up the good work I am excited and honored to be able to share my personal experiences with the Subaru brand and Annapolis Subaru dealership in Annapolis, Maryland. Annapolis Subaru continues to commit their excellence to the Subaru, aftermarket, and local communities by hosting events for the Subaru enthusiasts to "Share the Love," providing in-depth knowledge of part options, and supporting aftermarket needs, as well as hosting blood drives to give back to the local community. All of their actions and events demonstrated that they are more than just a car dealership; they are a great business that sets examples of what it can be among all of the communities they touched and are part of. Because of their continual support to the Subaru and the local communities, always giving back and doing the right things, I know where to turn to for my future Subaru needs. Keep up the good work, Annapolis Subaru team! - John C
