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. 

How is Frederick Subaru dedicated locally to the Love Promise?

The Frederick Subaru Love Promise can be seen in various partnerships with local charities and non-profits including The Animal Welfare League and Hospice of Frederick County. We're grateful for the opportunity, not only to be a part of our community, but to serve it as well.

A chili cook off to benefit those in need  –  Patrick B

At Frederick Subaru, we love supporting local charities in our community. We really enjoy finding creative and fun ways to get our staff and customers to help support the charities we stand behind here at Frederick Subaru. On February1st of 2019 we hosted a Chili Cook-off to benefit The Valor Center, here in the greater Frederick area. On the Friday of the Chili cook-off, employees were encouraged to wear any sports team jersey of their choice if they donated $3 each towards The Valor Center. Customers were invited in as well to participate by sampling our chili selection in exchange for learning from and listening the mission of the Valor Center. Our garage bay was filled with smiling faces and warm hearts as our staff and customers mingled on a personal level, lively conversations were sparked by team appeal and discussing friendly rivalries between everyone’s favorite teams. It was so enjoyable to watch everyone come together for a good cause and have fun while doing it. We seldom correlate delicious chili and sports with charitable events, but it was a wonderful blend that warmed up a cold winter day for all of us here at Frederick Subaru. We plan on hosting more of these events in the future to help other organizations in our area soon! About The Valor Centers Earn While You Learn Life Development Classes: “…Our primary focus is serving the needs of low-income, homeless and near homeless individuals and families…. We work to promote self-sufficiency for our clients as well as improve their quality of life and economic viability.Our services are offered year-round, as funding allows. To enhance the local capacity to meet the needs of our target clients…” – “A diversified curriculum of life development courses structured to teach critical life management skills that may never have been learned or have been lost during the course of physical or mental illness, domestic violence, substance use, incarceration, and homelessness. They are essential for program participants to function independently in the community. This is very similar to the Department of Social Service’s Temporary Cash Assistance Program—also known as (TCA). In order to receive TCA, client’s must volunteer up to 30 hours per week for the duration of their enrollment in the program. The same is true at Valor Ministries. Instead of volunteering, our client’s must take at least six classes in order to receive financial aid or support services.” –

Charity for the Cancer patient community  –  Hurwitz B

Frederick Maryland is not the biggest city in Maryland. At Frederick Subaru, we believe our city has the biggest heart in Maryland, which makes the Subaru Love Promise a perfect fit for our community. Frederick citizens are quick to rally behind one another and the community for support and charitable relief. Whenever we hear about a good cause outside of our regular Love Promise events, we’re quick to lend a helping hand. During the month of October, National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we partnered with a local family charity, The Hurwitz Breast Cancer Fund, a fund of The Frederick Memorial Hospital. The Hurwitz Breast Cancer fund holds annual 5k and Gala events funded via charitable donations, our goal was to bring awareness and funding to support this great cause based out of and started by Frederick Maryland locals. Frederick Subaru gave employees the chance to purchase a custom-made pink Breast Cancer Awareness shirt and wear it on Fridays during the Month of October, if an employee wore the shirt, they’d donate funds to the Hurwitz Fund and Frederick Subaru, part of the Frederick Motor Company then matched donations collected by employees and donated the additional funds to the Hurwitz Breast Cancer Charity. Some accomplishments of The Hurwitz fund in the past decade include… • Funds help make the new James M Stockman Cancer Institute a reality for cancer patients in our community. • A special breast coil was purchased for use with digital imaging of the breast. • 3D & CAD Mammography Systems have been purchased to assist in the detection of breast cancer at an earlier stage; allowing for more successful outcomes. • Supported a Breast Cancer Symposium and other group events for patients. • Created a healing space for patients and families at the Center for Breast Care at FMH Crestwood. • Purchased a device that enables the surgeon and radiologist to examine biopsy tissue in the operating room; this makes biopsies easier on the patient and returns results more quickly. Frederick Subaru is proud to support causes like this and many more through our community outreach with the Subaru Love Promise in mind.
