subaru ownership is philanthropicPosted on: 19, November, 2015
People love their Subarus. This is especially apparent in the Northwest where a recent Seattle Times article studied the question: “Does EVERYONE in Seattle drive a Subaru?” (Actually, it’s 1 in 10). Subaru not only appeals to its customers’ outdoorsy lifestyle and offers many of the same features that more expensive cars have, but also they give philanthropically a staggering amount of money to charities each year.
When you purchase a new car, they will donate $250.00 to one of four national charities according to your choice: ASPCA, Make-A-Wish Foundation, Meals on Wheels America or the National Park Foundation. Dealerships are also allowed to give at a local level and can choose a charity in their community!
2015 will mark the eighth year that Subaru has launched its Share the Love campaign. In 2014, the car company donated $15 million dollars to the four national charities listed and is sure to surpass that amount this year. The “Share the Love” event runs from November 19th, 2015-January 2nd, 2016 so if you are in the market for a new Subaru and are feeling charitable, don’t wait! For more information visit your local dealer.
