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.

O'Steen Subaru Fights Cancer in South Georgia!

Cancer scares everyone, and especially the people of South Georgia where the cancer rates are extraordinary and the suffering is great. But O'Steen Subaru of Valdosta is making a difference by joining the fight against cancer in our region! O'Steen Subaru was a major sponsor of the 2016 "Night for Hope", the annual fundraiser for the Cancer Coalition of South Georgia. The Cancer Coalition - a local nonprofit - provides health navigators, primary care and cancer screenings, helping men and women who otherwise would not receive the care they desperately need. The Coalition also serves the community with vital education and outreach, tobacco control, research to reduce cancer risks, and support for patients and survivors. With such tremendous need, the Cancer Coalition simply could not do its critical work without the involvement of local businesses. O'Steen Subaru of Valdosta, Georgia is a role model for not only becoming "involved", but more than that, for being a leader in improving the community. Their strong support benefits their employees, their customers, and everyone that lives and works here. Most people go through their entire lives never being able to say that they saved someone else's life, but Chip O’Steen and Jason Archer and their team can be assured that their support has not only improved, but actually saved, HUNDREDS of lives.
