Subaru Share The Love Event

 
This year, sharing the love is more important than ever.

Over the last 14 years, through the Subaru Share the Love® Event, Subaru of America Inc. and its participating retailers have donated more than $227 million to charity, with customers choosing between four national charities and over 1,700 hometown charities. In this, our 15th year, Subaru of America is on track to bring that total to over $250 million.

In partnership with Subaru of America, our Subaru of New England Retailers have donated over $22 million to charity - proving there's no limit to the amount of love we can all share.

More Than 74,000 Animals Rescued.

Subaru is the largest corporate donor to the ASPCA®.

A leading voice for animals for over 150 years, the ASPCA provides lifesaving protection and care to animals in need. Whether it's rescuing animals from abuse and neglect, introducing and enforcing more humane legislation, or supporting animal shelters across the country, the ASPCA helps animals live better lives.

Through the Subaru Share the Love Event, the ASPCA has had a significant impact on the rescue, transport, well-being, and adoption of more than 74,000 animals across the country.

More Than 2,700 Wishes Granted.

Subaru is the largest automotive donor to Make-A-Wish®.

Research shows that children who have wishes granted can build the physical and emotional strength they need to fight a critical illness. A wish replaces fear with confidence, sadness with joy, and anxiety with hope. The impact of just one wish has the power to transform the lives of everyone involved and helps wish kids and their families believe in better days ahead.

Through the Subaru Share the Love Event, Make-A-Wish has granted the life-changing wishes of more than 2,700 kids with critical illnesses.

Over 2.5 Million Meals Delivered.

Over 400 National Parks Protected.

Subaru is the largest corporate donor to the National Park Foundation.

The National Park Foundation, in partnership with the National Park Service, works to protect wildlife and park lands, preserve history and culture, educate and engage youth, and connect people everywhere to the wonder of parks.

Through the Subaru Share the Love Event, the National Park Foundation is able to increase public awareness and engagement across our National Park System and provide critical funding to programs and projects in more than 400 national parks.

Hometown Charities
Subaru has supported over 1,700 Hometown Charities.

The Hometown Charity program, created in 2013, allows each retailer to select up to two local charities within their community to be added to the list of organizations that customers can select to receive a donation. Since the creation of the program, Subaru has supported over 1,700 hometown charities.

This year, Subaru will also donate $5 to registered Hometown Charities for every Subaru vehicle's routine service visit during the campaign period.

Through the Subaru Share the Love Event, Subaru will support over 800 local Subaru Retailers' Hometown Charities.

Visit your local Subaru Retailer to learn more about which Hometown Charity they're supporting - together, we can make a difference across New England.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I select the charity or charities I want to receive the donation?

You can make your charity selection on subaru.com/share, by calling 1-800-SUBARU3, or by completing the form on the Digital Showroom kiosk at your retailer. You will be asked to provide your name, contact information, VIN, and charity selection. Subaru will then make the donation based on your designation. Visit www.subaru.com/share to learn more about the program and each of the participating charities.

What if I want to split the donation (i.e., select more than one charity) or vote more than once?

Each customer who has purchased or leased a new Subaru (2022-2023) can either designate one charity to receive the $250 donation or split it among any number of the participating charities. Only one donation (of $250) is made per vehicle sale or lease.

How long do I have to make the charity selection?

While we encourage customers to make their charity selection at the retail store at the time of purchase, selections will be accepted online at subaru.com/share or by phone at 1-800-SUBARU3 through January 15, 2023.

I bought a car, but forgot to submit my charity selection. Where does my money go?

For those who do not submit their charity selection by January 15, 2022, Subaru will allocate each $250 donation on the customer's behalf to participating charities.

How will I know that the donation was made?

You will receive a thank-you letter from Subaru on behalf of all of the charitable beneficiaries of the campaign.

By what date will Subaru make the donations to each charity? How much money is expected to be donated?

Subaru will make the donation to each charity by March 31, 2023. Over the last 14 years, Subaru of America Inc. and its participating retailers have donated more than $227 million through the Share the Love Event. By the end of this year, Subaru and its participating retailers will have donated over $250 million to help those in need.

Can I take a tax deduction for this donation?

Because Subaru is making the donation, the donation is not a tax-deductible contribution from the purchaser.

Why do some retailers have five charity options and others have more charity options?

Subaru of America offered the retailer community an optional opportunity to select up to two charities local to their communities to join the four national charities in the Subaru Share the Love Event. While some retailers are participating in this option, other retailers have decided to work with one local charity.
