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 at Subaru of America stay true to the Love Promise by partnering with a wide variety of nonprofits and charities. In addition to these partnerships, every year Subaru, our owners, and our retailers join hands in the "Share the Love" event, giving back to charities across the country. Over the past 20 years, Subaru of America has donated over 50 million dollars to causes we care about, and logged over 28,000 volunteer hours.

All of the organizations we support have one thing in common: the unwavering dedication to improve the world and the lives of its people. 

In April, Rancho Grande Subaru is partnering with The National Wildlife Foundation's Butterfly Heroes program to raise awareness and increase increase monarch butterfly populations through the planting and building of milkweed habitats butterflies need to survive.  Click Here to see more.

Spreading Warmth and Messages of Hope  –  Tamar K

One of our favorite times of the year is when we get to team up with Rancho Grande Subaru to participate in Subaru Love’s to Car Blanket Delivery. We love that we get to be a part of such a generous initiative that Subaru coordinates with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) across the nation, delivering blankets, craft kits and messages of hope to local patients. This past year,the Central California Chapter of LLS added a new campaign manager, Freya, to our team; so it only seemed natural to have her be a part of the blanket deliveries with Rancho Grande Subaru. Together with Chris and Travis from Rancho Grande Subaru, we delivered blankets and craft kits to PCR Oncology. The connection and comradery fostered that day between Rancho Grande Subaru, PCR Oncology and our the local LLS steam in SLO showed how the blanket deliveries not only touch the lives of those going through treatment, but those working together to find a cure and help these brave patients on their journey. As we continue to grow in San Luis Obispo, we want to thank Rancho Grande Subaru for helping us make a difference in the lives of local patients and care givers.


SUBARU SHARE THE LOVE EVENT and 17 STRONG  –  Steven T

All of us at 17 Strong are overwhelmed by the outpouring of support from Rancho Grande Subaru, Chris Wallace and his team are amazing people! Our thanks to Rancho Grande Subaru, Subaru’s Share the Love Event and the customers that chose 17 Strong as their charity of choice. Because of your generosity, 17 Strong granted Victory Trips to five young adults. 17 Strong picks up where “Make-A-Wish” leaves off and we grant Victory Trips to young adults that have battled life-threatening diseases and send them on a trip of their choice. We have sent young adults all over the world and because of your help, we sent these five individuals to Ireland, Honduras, Japan, Hawaii and the Bahamas. With these Victory Trips, young adults, are able to reconnect, take time for themselves to heal both mentally and physically, beginning a new chapter in life. Here is just a sample of how you are changing lives: “This was more than just a victory trip, but also served as a type of closure. During this trip I was able to escape the pressures of my everyday life, look back on this experience, and move forward, opening a new chapter of my journey along the way by proposing to my fiancé!” Caleb Ashbrook | Ireland 2019 “For the first time in a while we were being asked how we met and where we were from, instead of how did that last treatment go. It reminded us there is more to come in this Victory Year and more to come in my life! Victory decades here we come!" Marcela Hurtado | Honduras 2019. On behalf of 17 Strong and all of our Victory Trip recipients, THANK YOU for helping to change lives!


Where Love Meets Hope for Nurses & Doctors  –  Tamar K

When we think of the Subaru Loves to Care blanket delivery, the first thought that comes to mind is the impact we are making in the lives of the patients undergoing treatment. Seeing the smiling faces and gratitude patients share during a delivery is always so heartwarming, but on a recent visit to a small clinic in San Luis Obispo with Rancho Grande Subaru we realized the great impact these blanket deliveries also have on the nurses and doctors who treat the patients. When we walked into the clinic, PCR Oncology, we were greeted with an appreciative smile from the doctor and receptionist. Upon bringing in the blankets to the back of the office, Chris from Subaru, realized he knew one of the nurses. We realized that the generosity of the Rancho Grande Subaru provided the nurses something to offer patients during treatment all year long. This act of kindness not only brightened patient’s days; it also helped the nurses provide the best possible care and support during a difficult time. With this visit we learned that the simplest things, like a blanket, can mean so much.


The Ripple Effect of Kindess!  –  Casey F

Often times when we do “Subaru Loves to Care” deliveries to blood cancer patients, the impact on the patients is so clear. On this latest trip with Rancho Grande Subaru of San Luis Obispo, the ripple effect became very clear to us. We realized that these acts of kindness not only help the patients with a very dark time in their lives, but also impacts the teams that care for them. Upon our arrival to PCR Oncology in Pismo Beach, we were greeted with open arms and hugs from the staff. The staff shared stories of how Subaru’s program has made so many of their patients smile and has helped them ease the burden of patient’s treatment process. Being a small clinic, the staff shared how they will be bringing smiles for weeks to come as they pass out the remaining blankets and children’s craft kits to patients and their families.They shared how seeing this moment of joy, also helps them deal with the difficult moments of their jobs. The smallest acts of kindness not only help those undergoing cancer treatment, but also energize the doctors and nursing staff to assist in their care. The ripple effect that the “Subaru Loves toCare” program provides has been so humbling and inspiring to witness! A gift of a blanket not only helps the patient, it actually spreads the love so much more. These acts of kindness brought many moments of hope in a time of darkness. We are so grateful to Rancho Grande Subaru – Thank you, Thank you,Thank you for all you do to support our patients!


SUBARU SHARE THE LOVE  –  Chris W

Rancho Grande Subaru is Proud to Partner With The Kayla peach Memorial Foundation! We would like to Congratulate our community in partnering with us to Raise $15,000 for this wonderful charity!! The Kayla Peach Memorial Foundation has been established to honor loved local young souls that was taken from us much too soon. The goal of the foundation is to raise the awareness of our community about the silent but very real epidemic of addiction and substance abuse related deaths among our youth. In memory of Kayla, and in the effort to prevent this tragedy from devastating other families, KPMF through our coalition FAACES of SLO will provide addiction and substance abuse prevention educational programs to communities, schools, youth and parents. Through these addiction and substance abuse programs we will empower our youth and community with the knowledge and information necessary to make wise and life-saving choices. College scholarships are also awarded to graduating high school seniors who are committed to making a difference in the lives of others and leading substance free lives. No parent ever thinks it will be “their child.” It is our mission to make that statement a reality.
