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 Gateway Subaru dedicated locally to the Love Promise?

Love Promise Stories from Gateway Subaru

Subaru and NWF Loves the Earth  –  Sarah B

Subaru and NWF Loves the Earth

The 850 square area was tilled by a local rental company to allow more time planting and less time preparing the area. Students chose this area because it is slightly down hill and will hold moisture when it rains. Mulch and stone was donated by local landscaping companies to help beautify the garden. Native plants were planted to attract wildlife and add color to the surrounding area.

Gateway Subaru teams up with Barrels By the Bay  –  Megan R

Gateway Subaru teams up with Barrels By the Bay

Across the Eastern Shore, an average of 45 inches of rain falls per year, all of which has the potential to flow into the Chesapeake Bay and flood the surrounding areas. In a single rain barrel, an average of 700-gallons is collected in one rainfall, 1 inch of rain in 24 hours. In one year, just one barrel can collect 31,500 gallons of rain to be used throughout the landscape, to help prevent polluted storm water runoff, and to reduce flooding concerns. At the same time, thanks to the generous support from Gateway Subaru, the community is becoming more educated about water conservation, students are inspired to preserve our world's water resources, the region's sustainability is an important focus, and flooding concerns are combated throughout the local community. Schools participating in the Barrels by the Bay Wicomico county-wide program have the opportunity to paint Coca-Cola syrup barrels that have been retrofitted into rain barrels. Gateway Subaru has collaborated with Barrels by the Bay to help do just that. Barrels by the Bay is aimed at teaching the next generation of environmental proponents of our world's water resources, and Gateway Subaru has continued their Love Promise to partner with Barrels by the Bay and the community to help make a difference and positively impact the environment.

Alex's Lemonade Stand During the 48Hrs Tri-state  –  Cory C

Alex's Lemonade Stand During the 48Hrs Tri-state

A big thank you to Gateway Subaru for helping me host a charity event raising money for Alex's Lemonade Stand during the Subaru Enthusiasts event, 48 hours of Tristate. This yearly event gathers Subaru Enthusiasts together to raise money for numerous organizations to benefit Cancer research. Gateway Subaru enthusiastically embraced Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation. They donated not only their time but also generously donated money to my group as well. I have a long time relationship with Gateway having owned a laundry list of older and newer Subaru's. Subaru is an awesome company that is constantly giving back to the community. It has always been great working with Gateway for parts, service and now even for fund raising. Thank you Subaru and Gateway.


Gateway's Commitment to the Future  –  David W

Gateway's Commitment to the Future

I became part of Gateway's commitment to the community as a teacher at Parkside High school when I first approached Gateway to inquire about the availability of their service manager serving on our schools automotive department's business and education advisory committee.True to their original commitment they have continued to work with the school each year since. In the past 4 years of our involvement with Gateway, they have truly shown their commitment to education and to the students at Parkside High School.They have volunteered their time by speaking with our students about career opportunities and providing the school with any assistance we asked for. Our students that work at Gateway are not just employees but are mentored and trained by the other members of the Gateway staff. They continually share with the other students how much they enjoy working and learning there and how everyone there makes them feel like they are part of the Gateway family. Recently one of these students was selected to represent the state of Maryland at a national competition in New York City. Gateway Subaru quickly provided the school with a monetary donation to help defray the costs associated with the competition and also will be providing the students with training, materials, and vehicles for the students to become familiar with before the competition. Gateway Subaru has truly shown the Eastern Shore and our students what The Subaru Love Promise is all about.

We enjoy our partnership with Gateway Subaru. They allow us to have remote adoption events at their dealership and support our efforts to provide all the unwanted animals their best chance at a new home. They had a "Fill the Forester" campaign to receive many needed donations for all our animals. We greatly appreciate their support. The Humane Society of Wicomico County was established in 1969 to make a difference in the lives of animals and the people who love and care for them; and is dedicated to relieving the pain and suffering of animals through education and direct intervention. We work to help the animals as an "open admission" shelter taking strays from Wicomico County and surrendered animals from Wicomico County residents by appointments. We have an aggressive adoption program with many specials each month to encourage adoptions. Our spay/neuter clinic provides anyone regardless of residency an affordable, low-cost opportunity to spay or neuter their animal.
