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.

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. 

How is Reliable Subaru dedicated locally to the Love Promise?

At Reliable Subaru we believe in giving back to the community. Our Love Promise can be seen in various partnerships with local charities and non-profits that we work with throughout the year. We're excited and honored to be a part of the Springfield community and to have opportunities to give back to great area causes.

Subaru and Families of Sick Children  –  Bonnie K

For the 3rd year, Reliable Subaru has helped Springfield's two Ronald McDonald House programs through their Share the Love Event. Raising more than $40,600, these funds are providing families of sick children a place to call home during their child's hospitalization. Helping up to 24 families on any given night, the Ronald McDonald Houses specialize in providing a “home-away-from-home”, comfort and kindness when it's needed most. We’ve welcomed nearly 14,800 families since our program began in 1988. Thanks to the generosity of Reliable Subaru, we are able to provide a hopeful, peaceful, courageous place for families. We do our best to take away as many worries as possible so our families can focus on their ill child.

Underdogs Juneau and Brownie Love at Last  –  LINDAKAY W

This is the story of two dogs that needed love and found it with the help of Reliable Subaru. Juneau, a Catahoula mix dog is beautiful and stunning to see. As we discovered after she was left at our shelter, Juneau is partially blind and fully deaf. She is a very sweet dog and we would not have been able to diagnose these issues with clarity without the help of funds from the Subaru Love Promise promotion. Juneau was adopted to a loving home, that understands her health issues and loves her for who she is in October. Another of our Underdogs is Brownie, a chocolate lab mix dog, around 8 years old. Brownie was found one morning when our staff came to the shelter. Brownie had been left, abandoned in the night tied to our gate. He is a truly loving dog, full of energy like a puppy even though we think he is close to eight years of age. We were able to give Brownie a through vetting, checking him as a senior dog for any issues that come with age, We were able to do this through help from the Reliable Subaru funding from Subaru Love Promise for pets. Brownie found a true loving Forever Home in October. Both of these dogs had issues, Juneau, deaf and partially blind, and Brownie, a senior dog that many shelters would have euthanized. We thank Reliable Subaru and the national Subaru organization for assisting our shelter with vetting costs that helped these deserving dogs go to their loving "Forever Homes".

“Home-Away-From Home”  –  Bonnie K

Reliable Subaru’s “Share the Love” Event Provides a “Home-Away-From Home”for Families of Sick Children Every year, hundreds of families find a “home-away-from-home” at Springfield’s two Ronald McDonald Houses while their seriously ill and injured children receive treatment at local hospitals. This is only possible because of great people and companies like Reliable Subaru, Subaru of America Inc and of course, amazing Subaru customers! The Ronald McDonald Houses were built on the simple idea that nothing else should matter when a family is focused on healing their child. The Houses help families during one of the most vulnerable and scary times of their lives. Thanks to efforts like the “Share the Love” Event, the Houses are able to take care of families so they can be there for their sick child. On any given night, up to 24 families are staying at Springfield’s Ronald McDonald Houses. (PHOTO: The Connolly Family benefited from the Ronald McDonald House near Cox South for more than 100 nights while their son, Jack was hospitalized.)

Southwest Missouri Humane Society Food Drive  –  Rebecca P

During the month of October, Reliable Subaru teamed up locally with the Southwest Missouri Humane Society, to fill a Subaru Outback with their most needed items. The Southwest Missouri Humane Society is the largest NO KILL shelter in Southwest Missouri. They adopt over 3,500 pets into homes every year. They run their shelter on donations alone-no government assistance. Reliable Subaru was honored to be able to help the Southwest Missouri Humane Society. The Reliable Subaru team was able to collect a good amount of food, pet bedding, leashes, and treats!

Ozark Humane Society, Harrison Arkansas  –  LindaKay W

On September 3, 2020, our shelter received a call from the Boone County Arkansas Sheriff, informing us of a hoarding situation in a very rural part of the county. The Sheriff's department as well as the Boone County Prosecutor's office, asked our shelter for help with over 30 dogs and puppies, some chained up, others running loose without food, water, or shelter. We stepped up and helped rescue these abandoned dogs. We were able to get all 34 dogs out in one day, thanks to four-wheel drive vehicles and trailers. All of the 34 dogs were infested with fleas and ticks, starving, and dehydrated. After being vetted, the dogs were shown to have a bacterial infection that required treatment for 3 weeks. We were able to take 12 out the 35 dogs and were able to nurture them back to perfect health. During their treatments, we started preparing the dogs for adoption by making sure they all had their shots and were spayed or neutered. Thanks to Subaru's generous support during the Subaru Loves Pets Adoption Event, we were able to cover most of the costs of preparing these deserving dogs to go to their Forever Homes. Thank you, Subaru, for helping us offer these abandoned and abused dogs a better life filled with love, warmth, and affection. Linda Kay Watters

Reliable Subaru would like to thank everyone who participated in our teacher nomination contest held last month. We received a lot of great stories about some of your favorite teachers throughout the Springfield area and we're excited to announce that Michele Pate, a fourth grade teacher at Stockton Elementary School, is our grand prize winner!

In addition to our grand prize winner, we also gave out a $300 cash prize to our runner-up Dana Woodward, an English teacher at Hollister High School, and a $200 cash prize to Cory Sutherlin, a third grade teacher at Pittman Elementary, who came in third.

In addition to our teacher nomination contest, we also held a Back-to-School Sock Drive throughout the month of August in partnership with Care to Learn that was a huge success. We were able to collect an incredible amount of donations, which will benefit many children in need from throughout the community.

Reliable Subaru Loves the Earth  –  Casey K

Reliable Subaru makes the Ozarks a little greener During the month of April, Reliable Subaru at Chestnut and 65 sponsored The Grow and Give Event, culminating in an event on Saturday, April 25, with free food, recycling, alignment checks, and gift card giveaways to Wickmans Garden. Another aspect of the month-long promotion that featured the new 2015 Forester was a pledge that for every Subaru sold during the month, the dealership would plant a tree. With assistance from the Springfield-Greene County Park Board to determine what types of trees to use, and the donation of 100 free trees from Forest ReLeaf of Missouri (, on Tuesday, May 5, employees of Reliable Subaru and volunteers from the Ozark Greenways spent the afternoon planting trees at the new David C. Murray Trail head at 4769 N. Farm Road 141. Subaru of America, Inc., has long been an advocate for ecology and environmental programs to help improve their neighborhood communities. With the addition of the trees provided by Reliable Subaru, the preservation of the Ozarks just got a little bit greener.
