What is the Subaru Love Promise?

The Subaru Love Promise is just that. A promise. It is a promise to do right by our community by partnering with nonprofit education, health, community, environment, and animal organizations - to set Subaru apart through our deeds and the deeds of our partners. To be unlike any other car company by doing what is right and good, just for the sake of doing it.

The Love Promise starts with Subaru of America

We at Subaru of America stay true to the Love Promise by partnering with a wide variety of nonprofits and charities. In addition to these partnerships, every year Subaru, our owners, and our retailers join hands in the "Share the Love" event, giving back to charities across the country. Over the past 20 years, Subaru of America has donated over 50 million dollars to causes we care about, and logged over 28,000 volunteer hours.

All of the organizations we support have one thing in common: the unwavering dedication to improve the world and the lives of its people.

The charities' varying focuses and passions include:

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.


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.


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


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.


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 Planet Subaru

Planet Subaru and NSRWA go "well" together  –  Lori W

Planet Subaru and NSRWA go

The North and South Rivers Watershed Association partnered with Planet Subaru to cut water usage at the dealership by 23%. NSRWA GreenScapes Program Director Lori Wolfe said, "We chose Planet Subaru for this project because of their reputation for green practices which include powering their showroom by solar panels and mowing with goats." Planet Subaru is officially recognized by Subaru of America as an Eco-Friendly Retailer. Planet is now saving over 40,000 gallons of water per year. The NSRWA analyzed the dealership's baseline water usage and prepared a list of recommendations for Planet to implement. Water-saving measures included the installation of high-efficiency toilets and other low-flow plumbing hardware. Planet Subaru was already recycling their carwash water and using no water for landscaping, but their fifty team members are always looking for new ways to shrink the environmental footprint of their operations. Saving water reduces the strain on Hanover's three wells, and reduces the amount of chemicals and energy required to treat the water.

Farm to Food Pantry Program  –  Jon B

Farm to Food Pantry Program

Our focus for the Farm to Food Pantry program, now in its 5th year, is to engage teenagers in meaningful farm work. In every season, there is always plenty of work to do on the farm. Students help us achieve our goals. We seek to teach high school students about the important aspects of growing organic produce, incorporating sustainable practices and delivering healthy vegetables to local food pantries. There is a growing need at food pantries, and it is important for students to learn about their neighbors and peers who depend on equal access to food. Recently, one such teen, Yvette Wehner, harvested some early Spring leeks and scallions which are ready to enhance someone's meal. Yvette is in her second year of bicycling to the farm to complete this valuable community service, and we at the farm love this promise and commitment to help the environment and the folks who live here. Thank you Yvette and the dozens of additional teenagers who help and participate in this program, which is so kindly supported by the folks at Planet Subaru in Hanover.

Do you believe in miracles?  –  Christine R

Do you believe in miracles?

We desperately needed a dependable car to get my daughter, Rachel, to her leukemia treatments in Boston. She has suffered so much at one point, she spent 44 straight days in the hospital. I used to have a perfect credit score but we had been devastated financially. I wrote to Planet Subaru because of their reputation for helping the community and asked if they could sell us a car on a VERY long-term payment plan. After a few weeks they traded in a nice Legacy and reconditioned it like new. When I came to pick it up, they wouldn't accept any money at all they gave me the car, and even paid all the taxes and DMV fees! Rachel named our Legacy Lu Lu. Now we don't have to ask for rides to the hospital, and I've been able to resume my real estate career to repair our finances. We LOVE Lu Lu and Planet Subaru! Thank you!

Planet Subaru awarded Energy Star Small Business Award  –  Maura B

Planet Subaru awarded Energy Star Small Business Award

Planet Subaru, a Top Contender in the National Building Competition and winner of the Energy Star Small Business Award. Among many other efforts, Planet's signature initiative was the installation of a 78,540 watt rooftop solar plant, making Planet Subaru the only Subaru showroom in the world powered entirely by the sun. The 374 solar panels occupy about a quarter acre of Planet Subaru's roof and power the entire showroom: lights, computers, monitors, phones, fax machines, photocopiers, refrigerators, coffee makers, water coolers, vending machines...everything previously powered by burning fossil fuels. The panels provide approximately half of all the electrical power used by the entire dealership. When the system produces more power than the dealership requires, the electric meter runs backwards and the power company buys the electricity from Planet Subaru. Planet's installation produces 88,752 kWh annually, enough to power approximately eight average American homes. Owners of Planet Subaru, brothers John and Jeff Morrill, are eager to reduce the environmental impact of their businesses. Jeff Morrill said, manufacturing and driving cars takes a heavy toll on the earth. It is estimated that transportation alone is responsible for 25% of the world's carbon emissions. But buildings account for 43%, and while this family business can't reinvent the internal combustion engine, we can make a big difference in our facility.

Well known for its earth-friendly facilities, Planet Subaru is using goats and sheep to landscape its 11-acre facility. Planet Subaru owner Jeff Morrill said, "We have never used fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides at Planet Subaru, and now we're working to reduce the use of gasoline mowers and trimmers, too." The owners of Planet Subaru, brothers John and Jeff Morrill, are eager to reduce the environmental impact of their businesses. "Manufacturing and driving cars takes a heavy toll on the earth," Jeff Morrill said. "While this family business can't reinvent the internal combustion engine, we can make a big difference in our facility." Planet Subaru has been greening its operations for years. Planet's facility boasts a rooftop solar installation with 374 solar panels that power the entire showroom. Planet Subaru also received one of only eight Energy Star Small Business Awards awarded by the United States Environmental Protection Agency. "Planet Subaru's tag line is 'your undealership.'" Jeff Morrill said. "Our environmental commitment is part of offering an experience different than the typical dealership. Many people do business with us because we share their values."
