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:

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 Bill McBride Subaru

For the Love of Animals  –  Christy P

For the Love of Animals

Bill McBride Subaru believes in the importance of community and remains diligent in being an active supporter of our local charities within the Plattsburgh community. For this year “Share the Love” Event, we chose an organization that is close to our hearts. The Elmore SPCA is a non-profit organization and no kill animal shelter. Their mission is to provide shelter and comfort to animals in need that are on the path to finding loving lifetime homes. In order to provide these animals with loving and quality care, the Elmore SPCA relies on donations from the community and local businesses. That is why it was such an honor for Bill McBride Subaru to nominate them as our local charity. The donation presentation was held on May 7, 2016 from 11:00 AM – 2:00 PM in which a check for $2,316.00 was presented to the Board President, Laurie Parsons by Subaru District Sales Manager, Annie Robillard - Esposito and Bill McBride Subaru Dealer Principal, Brian McBride. Pet Adoptions were available to the public and it was a great opportunity to raise awareness of the Elmore SPCA’s mission to the community and to the animals that they shelter. We are very proud to have chosen such a deserving organization and we look forward to continuing our unwavering support to Elmore SPCA. We would like to thank Subaru, Elmore SPCA, and their volunteers for the opportunity to help “Share the Love”.


A BRZ for Nathan  –  Jenna W

A BRZ for Nathan

We at Bill McBride Subaru always strive to be an active and influential part of the Plattsburgh community. Being able to give back to the community has been very important to us throughout the years. In March 2013, Saranac High School Student, Nathan W., was diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma at the age of 17. Ewing's Sarcoma is a rare form of bone cancer that effects children and adolescents. Nathan dreamt of owning a Subaru BRZ, which came true in April 2013 when Nate took delivery of a brand new blue 2013 BRZ. Almost a year later, we were contacted by Make-A-Wish in Albany, NY and thought this would be the perfect fit for Nathan. With his health slowly deteriorating, Make-A-Wish granted Nathan his wish to customize his new BRZ and we helped make this dream come true. Dealer Principal Brian McBride, Service Director Casey Coburn and Subaru Trained and Certified Technician Nick LaGoy and other local partners, working after-hours, transformed Nathan's BRZ into something truly unique and special. A few weeks later, a white stretch limousine brought Nathan to our store where he was presented with his customized BRZ. Nathan went on to enjoy his BRZ immensely and was ever so thankful. Sadly, he lost his battle with cancer in July 2014. A true fighter until the end! We're proud to have supported Nathan and Make-A-Wish.
