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 over $28 million to the ASPCA and through Subaru Loves Pets has helped support the rescue, transport, adoption and well-being of over 230,000 animals across the country. 


Loving the environment means more than loving the great outdoors. It means working to preserve it.

Since 2018, Subaru has partnered with TerraCycle.  Participating Subaru retailers collect hard-to-recycle trash that was headed to local landfills. We collect approximately 2 tons of this hard-to-recycle trash monthly, which will be converted to furnishings and other usable items and donated locally.


It’s our goal to make the pursuit of knowledge available to as many minds as possible.

Since 2015 Subaru, in partnership with the American Association for the Advancement Science, donated over 277,600 award-winning science books.  In addition, through our partnerships with Staples and we supported teachers and students with donations of S400,000 in gift cards and school supplies. 


In a perfect world, hunger would be history and hope would be commonplace. We believe a perfect world is possible.

In 2020, Subaru and its retailers made a donation to Feeding America to provide 50 million meals to help feed people in need during the COVID-19 crisis,* making meals available at 199 local food banks across the country.
*$1 helps provide at least 10 meals secured by Feeding America on behalf of local member food banks. 


We should all have a chance to lead a healthy life. We’re aiming to give as many people that chance as we can.

Since 2016, Subaru and its retailers have partnered with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) to donate over 167,000 blankets and 21,500 arts & crafts kits and reached nearly 150,000 patients in more than 780 hospitals nationwide.

Subaru Helps Foster Youth Succeed!  –  Nicole K

As part of Subaru's annual giving, Echoes of Hope was gifted a grant to support youth in our Leaders of Tomorrow program. These are young students, ages 15-30 who are current/former foster youth, at-risk, low-income, undocumented, and/or formerly sex trafficked or incarcerated. These students have fought against all odds and statistics to work toward obtaining their college degrees. With the generosity of the Subaru of America Foundation, Inc., we were able to continue to aid our (49) core students while they work toward their education. With this support, we continue to have a 96% stay-in and graduation rate. Funds from this grant supported meal assistance, housing support, transportation, testing fees, quarterly workshops, a graduation celebration for our college graduates, and more. We are so appreciative of the support of this wonderful foundation!

Subaru Santa Monica & LLS Deliver Some Hope  –  JJ O

Subaru Santa Monica teamed up with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's California Southland Chapter to donate and personally deliver craft kits and blankets to Venice Family Clinic. Our mission at the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society does not just find a cure but to help improve the quality of lives for our patients and we know that these gifts from Subaru Santa Monica will provide comfort to patients on their cancer journey. This incredible act of generosity was warmly received by the staff at Venice Family Clinic, who were elated to receive so many comfort items to distribute to patients and caregivers in need. It was amazing to have the support of Subaru Santa Monica and it truly made these patients and their families day!

The car comes to me  –  Stephanie W

My husband and I went into Subaru of Santa Monica to pick up the car we found online. We were in the dealership when our wonderful sales associate was told that our car was buried behind a fresh delivery of new cars. We did all the paperwork, fast and easy. Agreed upon a price, also fast and easy. Then we waited. When 10 minutes turned into 20, Vanessa (I think) said that we had waited long enough, the car would be brought to our home where we could do a test drive and finish signing the papers. The next morning, at exactly the agreed upon hour, the car pulled up. Been driving my Forester ever since! Thanks, SUBARU! Customer for life:)

Subaru and NWF Love the Earth  –  Ellen O

Some of the plants were planted in this front garden by the mural and school entrance. It was started last year but only has a few plants. Other plants were planted in planters near the classrooms. Unfortunately, several of those didn't make it but they will be replaced when we return to school in August.

Earth Week  –  Rosa L

Subaru Santa Monica Loves the Earth. Subaru of Santa Monica is dedicated in promoting environmental awareness. I believe that it is a matter of importance that all of us are aware of the importance of taking care of our Earth because we live in it. This year 2016, Subaru of Santa Monica participated in Earth week. It was the best experience because it taught me the importance of helping protect our environment. It was also a fun because we interacted with the staff by giving us recyclable bags. Plus, all of their staff participate by bringing ugly mugs to work to discourage the use of paper cups. Thank you Subaru of Santa Monica for being part of the Earth week.

Butterfly Project  –  Sara S

The month of April is important for Subaru Pacific. Sara Sullivan of Hermosa Valley elementary in Hermosa Beach, Ca joined efforts with several of her classmates to do their part to help cultivate micro habitats for Monarch butterflies. It is earth month and in addition to supporting enviromental awareness and Earth Day, Subaru Pacific partners with Grades of Green. THE GRADES OF GREEN PROGRAM WAS FIRST IMPLEMENTED AT GRAND VIEW ELEMENTARY SCHOOL IN MANHATTAN BEACH, CALIFORNIA, IN ORDER TO RAISE ENVIRONMENTAL AWARENESS AMONG KIDS.It started as a parent-run volunteer program that was hands-on and focused on being a support team for the broader school community. Along with education, we plant gardens at schools and create small micro habitats for insects. One of the projects that we particpated in was the National Wildlife Federation with the Butterfly Heroes Program. As partners, we are bringing awareness of the declining Monarch Butterfly population and together we will educate, inspire, and restore. The monarch butterfly contributes to the beauty and health of our planet. The butterflies lay their eggs on the poisonous milkweed plant and butterfly predators but the milkweed is also being eradicated by urbanization, speeding up butterfly extinction. The monarch population has seen a rapid decline in recent years. It's our intention that through distributing seed packets and creating a habit at Subaru Pacific, one by one we are able to help revive the population.
