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.

As October comes to a close, we're very grateful to Dunning Subaru for all they did for the animals this month!

The Michigan Shakespeare Festival started in 1994 and has grown into one of the premier theatre companies in the Great Lakes region. Our mission is to inspire and entertain diverse audiences, with evocative, interesting, and epic productions of classical theatre’s greatest plays.

Dunning Subaru helping fight hunger  –  Elena M

Food Gatherers has a clear mission, to ensure that no one goes hungry. They are committed to helping the community and it's hunger problems. As a testament to this commitment they distribute about 5.5 million pounds of food to 150 nonprofits in the Washtenaw area. Providing food is not all they do, they also have a job training program for at-risk youth and not only teach them basic culinary arts but also including work and life related skills. Dunning Subaru is a partner in the fight against hunger in our community. Their Subaru Loves to Help donation in 2020 provided more than 28,000 meals for children, families, and seniors facing hunger during the COVID-19 pandemic. We look forward to working together with them in the future!

A Day of Giving at Dunning Subaru  –  Brittney S

The best part about working for Subaru of America, Inc. is being able to give back to our community - showing up with All The Love at every chance we get. Subaru is a brand built around Love. From Subaru Loves to Care (C.S. Mott Children's Hospital with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society) to Subaru Loves to Learn (Ann Arbor Public Schools) and Subaru Loves Pets (Humane Society of Huron Valley), it's our honor here at Dunning Subaru to take part in these collaborative measures to contribute to our community.

Dunning Subaru Loves to Care  –  Jamie R

Community is a major component to Dunning - a driving force to the pulse of our mission, much of which is charitable as we give back to the very folks who keep us up and running. It's all a grand balance of give and take so that we can give more. Experiences such as this one here - where we were able to gift cozy blankets to patients at C.S. Mott Children's Hospital - mean everything. The children we met, the survivors, the warriors, their parents and caretakers, all fighting every day the challenges of these struggles - they are superheroes. Whenever we can, we will help however possible. Dunning Subaru Loves to Care! <3 We are so grateful for this opportunity to Share The Love a little more with the help of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

Dunning Subaru brings warmth to cancer patients  –  Jamie R

On Monday, July 29th, the Michigan Chapter of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) and Dunning Subaru had the pleasure of delivering 80 blankets to C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital as part of the Subaru Loves To Care program. These comforting gifts were accompanied by personalized messages of hope written by the customers and staff of Dunning Subaru. This incredible act of generosity was warmly received by the hospital staff, Byron Myer & Mary Breakey who were thrilled to distribute these comforting gifts to their patients. We had the opportunity to delivery to patients all throughout the 7th floor which is the pediatric wing of the hospital. On the 7th floor we were lucky to be introduce to ZuZu & Thomas. Being able to deliver a small gesture of comfort that day and seeing their smiles, perfectly captured why the program exists. LLS is proud to partner with Subaru to spread hope, love and warmth to those fighting cancer, across the country and right here in the Ann Arbor community.

Dunning Subaru Delivers Blankets  –  Jo B

Dunning Subaru in Ann Arbor and LLS team up to give blankets out to C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital! Todd Bailey and Peter Van Buren from Dunning Subaru were excited to be part of the Subaru Loves to Care program! The staff of C.S. Mott’s were touched by Subaru’s generous gift of 80 blankets. Kevin Smith from the hospital was in attendance to receive the blankets and cannot wait to pass them along to their patients. Huge thanks to C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital, Dunning Subaru, and LLS, for making connections that count!

Subaru and NWF Love the Earth!  –  Neha S

The King Learning Garden provides a source of locally grown organic food for our school community and offers a connection to the earth that inspires new ways to think, learn, and live. We observe and learn from all living things and nature in our garden. The students care for the garden, plant the seeds and harvest. I wish I could include more photos of the Subaru staked garden sign and Perennials that we planted into our pollinator bed as well as photos of students tending to our garden. Subaru loves the Earth is a great program and just having the staked garden sign has sparked many conversations about the National Wildlife Federation, nature and Subaru.
