- Why Subaru
Subaru supports various organizations committed to helping those in our communities stay as healthy as possible.
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is the largest nonprofit organization dedicated to creating a world without blood cancers. Since 1949, they’ve invested more than $1.2 billion in groundbreaking research, pioneering many of today’s most innovative approaches. LLS works tirelessly to find cures and ensure patients can access the lifesaving treatments they need. When someone experiences the fear and uncertainty of a cancer diagnosis, LLS provides hope, compassion, education and support. And they are making an impact in the cancer community. Many treatments funded by LLS are now helping patients with other cancers and serious diseases. More than 65 years of fighting blood cancers has led LLS to a game changing belief: the cures for cancer are in our blood.
Since 2015, Subaru and our retailers have partnered with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) to donate over 105,000 blankets and 12,465 arts and crafts kits to those fighting cancer at hospitals and cancer treatment centers across the country.
Make-A-Wish® creates life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses.
When kids with life-threatening medical conditions are granted their one true wish, it renews their energy and strength to keep fighting. Their families and entire communities come together. And lives get better for everyone involved. Through Make-A-Wish, Share the Love has granted the wishes of more than 1,500 children with critical illnesses.
The Alzheimer's Association leads the global research effort to end Alzheimer's disease while providing education and support to the millions who face dementia every day.
Subaru partnered with the Alzheimer’s Association during the 2012 Share the Love Event, and raised $1,123,557 to help advance research, provide care, and support families in communities nationwide.
At Subaru, through our Subaru Loves to Care initiative, we partner with organizations committed to helping those in our communities stay as healthy as possible. Subaru of America proudly serves as a host sponsor of Dining Out For Life®, an annual fundraising event that draws over 300,000 people to 3,000 restaurants in 60 cities in North America.
It's magnificent in its simplicity: Dine at a participating restaurant and that restaurant will donate a generous portion of the day's proceeds to fund HIV/AIDS care, prevention, education, testing, counseling and other essential services in their city. The event is traditionally held on the last Thursday in April, while some markets have alternate dates.

Special Olympics is the world’s largest sports organization for people with intellectual disabilities — with 4.4 million athletes in 170 countries and millions of volunteers and supporters.
Subaru partnered with Special Olympics during the 2011 Share the Love Event and donated a total of $613,536 in support of the organization, which was used to fund Special Olympics training and competitions that happen every day.
For over 30 years, the Deep Creek Lake Lion's Club has been giving visually impaired students the chance to experience the fun and empowerment of downhill skiing through the Club's Blind Skier Program. In 2016, Subaru invited the Club to partner with them at their Winterfest event at WISP Resort and it was a great experience. Along with Subaru's generous donation, the club was able to spread the word about our program to hundreds of skiers during the event who came by to visit the various tents. Our club was delighted to partner with Subaru and hope it’s the beginning of a beautiful friendship!
Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) exists to find cures and ensure access to treatments for blood cancer patients. Since its inception in 1949, LLS has invested more than $1 billion in cutting-edge research to advance cures and better therapies. As the largest nonprofit organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research, education, and patient services, LLS is working to save lives not someday, but today.
The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) and Subaru partnered to spread hope, love, and warmth to cancer patients at the MD Anderson Cancer Center at Cooper University Health Care in South Jersey. The representatives donated 100 specially made blankets along with messages of hope written by Subaru employees.
These little tokens of appreciation help these patients understand that we're here for them and we care about what they are going through," said Thomas J. Doll, president and COO of Subaru of America. "It's very difficult for them to go through this type of treatment, so any little bit that we can help provide in way of encouragement [and] a blanket, is great.
The visit was part of the Subaru Loves to Care initiative and the ongoing partnership with LLS to donate over 38,000 blankets, 4,750 arts and crafts kits and encouraging messages to patients across the country.
Project Angel Heart was founded in 1991 to address major challenges facing Coloradans living with a life-threatening illness. The program provides over 1,000 individuals with the nutrition they need to get stronger and remain independent in their homes.
Mike Shaw Subaru and Flatirons Subaru of Denver have supported Project Angel Heart through food drives at their stores, inviting staff and clients to donate. In April 2015, Subaru retailers donated shelf-stable food to help those in need at Project Angel Heart. To learn more about Project Angel Heart, please visit: https://www.projectangelheart.org/
The Subaru of America Foundation has been instrumental in The Parkesburg POINT's capacity to serve an increased number of at-risk youth this year. The POINT is a firm believer that "every child deserves hope" and greatly appreciates Subaru's partnership in bringing hope to hundreds of kids. This past Friday, we hosted our first "Girls Night Out" for the 2017-2018 school year. The theme of the evening was "You Are Special" and we had 60 girls in attendance, aged 8-18. With the help of staff and volunteers, our students received a healthy snack, participated in games and crafts and heard inspirational messages. Subaru's support makes nights like this possible. Thank you for helping us bring hope to the hopeless and empowering youth to believe they are special.
