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.

Love Promise Stories from Fitzgerald Subaru

Fitzgerald Subaru Helps 14 Animals Find Homes!  –  Dani R

Fitzgerald Subaru Helps 14 Animals Find Homes!

The Humane Rescue Alliance's (HRA) partnership with Fitzgerald Subaru has brought joy to not only our animals and adopters, but to our volunteers and staff members too. HRA Adoptions Outreach Coordinator Ceci said, “I was so excited to be part of the ASPCA and Subaru Loves Pets fee-waived adoption event. The staff was incredibly welcoming and they made sure all HRA staff and volunteers felt valued and at home!” Even better, through this incredible partnership we were able to find loving, forever homes for 14 animals! We are so grateful for their continued support of the more than 60,000 animals whose lives we touch each year. Thank you Dottie and the Fitzgerald Subaru team. We couldn't do what we do without you!

Fitzgerald Subaru Helps Homeless Animals!

There are partners and then there is family. The good folks at Fitzgerald Subaru - led by the incomparable Dottie Fitzgerald - have been nothing short of fantastic to work with for the Humane Rescue Alliance, truly becoming part of our family. Our partnership began in 2013 and has grown to be so much more. The team at Fitzgerald Subaru regularly hosts pet adoption events at their locations, helping us find homes for hundreds of homeless dogs, cats, puppies, kittens....even a rabbit or two! Fitzgerald's generosity continues this fall when we celebrate. "Subaru Loves Pets", with a fee-waived adoption event at Fitzgerald Subaru Rockville. And of course, in December, we have our Share the Love events -- all hosted by Dottie and her team at Fitzgerald Subaru. Last year, Fitzgerald Subaru came through with an amazing $75,000 to help HRA serve the 60,000 animals we touch each year. Thank you Dottie and the Fitzgerald Subaru team! We couldn't do what we do without you!

Fitzgerald Subaru Loves to Care!

The July 17th delivery to Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, D.C. was especially meaningful for Wendy Medrano from Fitzgerald Subaru of Rockville. During the visit, Wendy shared with Fernanda Vessio, the Children’s Volunteer Services Manager, how she will be attending George Mason University as a Biology major, and a dream of becoming a pediatrician. “The experience was amazing, you had the power to make patients happy and feel better. It allowed you to see life in a whole different perspective and see that we, the community, are able to make others happy even if we don’t know the person.” Wendy later shared with us. Wendy, along with her colleagues Katie Hall and Wendy Chavez brought 80 blankets, 10 arts and crafts kits, and messages of hope for pediatric patients and also met Honored Hero, Michael Erlandson, his brother and sister and mom, Sandi. During their visit, Katie and both Wendy’s received a tour of the Emergency department with the Children’s staff where they were able to personally give blankets and craft kits to children.

Fitzgerald Subaru Loves Animals!

On April 18, 2015, Fitzgerald Auto Malls hosted a pet adoption event and celebrated the second year of partnering with the Washington Animal Rescue League (WARL). The showroom was bustling with the sounds of jangling of new car keys and the happy barks and meows from pets that found new "furever" homes! Twenty homeless dogs and cats from WARL were available for adoption. In addition, Fitzgerald Auto Malls presented checks worth over $33,000 to WARL. The two Maryland Fitzgerald Subaru dealerships in Rockville and Gaithersburg raised the funds last December in the "Subaru Share the Love" event. "This is about making a difference for all our four-legged friends, and we appreciate the partnership with both WARL and with Subaru to make this possible," said Dottie Fitzgerald, President of Fitzgerald Subaru. "Fitzgerald Subaru has been a true friend, not just to WARL, but to the countless dogs and cats, puppies and kittens, that are now a part of a loving family because of the pet adoption events at their many dealerships," said Bob Ramin, CEO of WARL. Fitzgerald continues to accept tangible items like pet food and supplies, and other support for WARL on a monthly basis as a part of their "Stuff A Subaru" campaign.
