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.

Pets

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 close to $14 million to the ASPCA and helped support nearly 1,000 pet adoption events, resulting in more than 11,500 adoptions to date.

Environment

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

Over a decade ago, Subaru became the first U.S. auto manufacturer to become zero-landfill, and now, in collaboration with the National Park Service and the National Parks Conservation Association, Subaru is leveraging that same environmental expertise to help the National Parks reach zero-landfill too.

Education

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

Total donations to teachers: $92,233
Over 200 teachers adopted
More than 15,000 students impacts

Community

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

Subaru and Meals on Wheels America worked together to make volunteering easier, by launching a tool called the Meals on Wheels Online Volunteer Drive.

Health

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

Subaru has donated more than $4.5 million dollars to
Make A Wish, helping to grant 610 wishes in the U.S.

How is Napleton Subaru dedicated locally to the Love Promise?

Our Love Promise can be seen in various partnerships with local charities and non-profits. We're grateful for the opportunity, not only to be a part of our community, but to serve it as well.

Love Promise Stories from Napleton Subaru

6th Annual Nik's Home Run  –  Brian Lyngaas L

6th Annual Nik's Home Run

On a rainy Oct. 14, 2017, at Rivets Stadium, in Rockford,IL, Volunteer Coordinator Linda Granneman and over 40 Volunteer CourseMarshals, including myself, Brian Lyngaas, stood by my 2015 Subaru Legacybefore taking our spots for the 6th annual Nik's Home Run 7K race.This event also included a 1.5 mile Fun Walk, Silent Auction, and Virtual Run.It’s the main fundraiser for Nik's Wish, the Nikolas Ritschel Foundation, whichis a 501(c)(3) charity. Nik’s Wish is for young adults (ages 18-24) fightingcancer who are too old for Make-A-Wish. In spite of gloomy weather forecasts,we were blessed with a prolonged break in the rain, which allowed the race,walk, heartfelt speeches, and the awards ceremony to be completed. The rain thenresumed coming down in buckets. A record turnout from the 415 registeredparticipants were cheered on by over 110 volunteers. Many guests also came justfor Grammy's Silent Auction. Though we fell short of our $75,000 goal to fundthe 15 Nik Wishes in progress, we came close. In 6 years, Nik's Wish hasfulfilled over 72 wishes, providing these brave young adults and their familieswith respite vacations (Disney), unique experiences (swimming with dolphins)and/or cherished items (an iPhone). Such a break from grueling treatment regimensrenews hope and strengthens faith to help them get through their difficultcancer battles. Visit Nik’s website for pictures and stories about these courageousyoung adults: www.nikolasritschelfoundation.org.

PAWS also supports over 300 local classrooms by sending the "Kind News" to teach humane education to the children in our community.

Rockford MELD  –  Karen T

Rockford MELD

It was early in 2015 when a friend introduced me to Geoff at Napleton. We talked about what MELD does in the community providing programs and services for many young moms, dads and their children. Within a couple of months we were asked to submit our application for Love Your Subaru and then was selected to be the recipient agency to receive the 2015 Love Your Subaru donation. This could not have come at a better time. We had been notified in July 2015 that due to the State budget impasse, MELD would not be receiving funding for some of our homeless programs. Now in May of 2016 and still no state funds, the $15,010 we received will benefit MELD (Mothers and Fathers Establishing Life’s Direction) Programs for young moms, dads and their children including our MELD Homeless Shelter, Transitional Living Program, MELD Young Moms and Dads Parent Support Groups, Education and Employment Assistance Program and Homelessness Prevention/Rapid Re-Housing Program. Our mission is "guiding young parents to build a strong family and lead a responsible life by providing shelter, education and life skills training." The crew at Napleton's is awesome, not only with working hard to help support the cause and MELD, but also with their great service at the local Rockford locations. I ended up buying my new car at Napleton -love my car, the weekly car wash and the exceptional service team. Thanks so much!
