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.

How is Bel Air Subaru dedicated locally to the Love Promise?

Share the Love Supports Kaufman Cancer Center  –  Ken F

Share the Love Supports Kaufman Cancer Center

The Patricia D. and M. Scot Kaufman Cancer Center at the University of Maryland Upper Chesapeake Medical Center is humbled by the ongoing support of Subaru and Bel Air Subaru for their gifts now totaling over $100,000 over the last four years through The Share the Love program. These gifts will support the Cancer LifeNet program. Sometimes the unknown can be the biggest fear for people when they receive a cancer diagnosis. Navigating the health care system while facing a life-threatening illness can be a major challenge. That is why the Cancer LifeNet program was developed. The goal of the program is to provide patients and their families the support they need so that they can "fight the disease" instead of wasting energy "fighting the system." Cancer LifeNet is a free and funded fully through philanthropy support system for those living in Harford and Cecil counties with a cancer diagnosis. It helps individuals cope with the physical, financial, psychological and emotional aspects of cancer. Thank you for being a neighbor who continues to help friends and neighbors. Ken Ferrara The Upper Chesapeake Health Foundation Vice President and Executive Director


Bel Air Subaru & Pets on Wheels Roll Out for Good  –  Gina K

Bel Air Subaru & Pets on Wheels Roll Out for Good

Pets on Wheels has been rolling out good times in Maryland this year, with some help from Bel Air Subaru. Pets on Wheels brings therapy animals to facilities for friendly pet visits. Pets on Wheels has more than 500 volunteer teams and visits over 175,000 people each year at 400 facilities and events, including nursing homes, hospices, shelters, veteran's hospitals, schools, libraries, parades and more. Thanks to Bel Air Subaru's support, the group expanded its recruitment efforts in 2016. Otis (pictured) was one of the pets that joined. He was a major hit at another event supported by Bel Air Subaru - the First Annual Wheel to Heal presented by the Hunt Valley Rotary and sponsored by Bel Air Subaru. Everyone had a "rolling, rollicking good time" in support of Pets on Wheels and other charities. Pets on Wheels teams including Mugsy, a petite bulldog, and Otis, the Superdog, were in attendance, complete with costumes, to tell people about the organization's work. Otis was rescued by Tiffany Metzger as a senior dog in a shelter. Otis had a rough life, but now is a super therapy pet bringing smiles to everyone he meets. The Pets on Wheels teams greeted visitors at the event and more than $7000 was raised for Pets on Wheels and other local charities. Pets on Wheels plans to keep growing & rolling out the benefits of friendly pet therapy to even more people as they celebrate their 35th anniversary in 2017, with help from Bel Air Subaru.
