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 Maple Hill Subaru dedicated locally to the Love Promise?

Love Promise Stories from Maple Hill Subaru

We Believe In You  –  Deborah D

We Believe In You

Subaru is associated with “family;” what it means to live, work, and play in your community. Subaru “love” means something different to many, collectively it requires the local car dealer to meet their current and future customers on the streets, in the parks, together doing the things that are important and relevant to families. This interaction authentically connects Subaru to the car dealer and the community. Maple Hill Auto Group is family. When they sponsor an event, they become a trusted partner that will provide financial support, participate in the planning, promise support in implementation, and work tirelessly to innovate for the next year. It’s about the future, it’s about promises of partnership, it’s even about love for the charity and the passion to give back. Maple Hill Auto Group has sponsored New Year’s Fest for nearly 17 years, they rescued the Kalamazoo Holiday Parade from financial challenges and created a sponsorship culture where others joined to make it profitable. And they were a major sponsor for Community Advocates Ribfest where they helped to redesign the VIP program that helped to generate additional dollars. Jim and Randi provide ideas and even build floats to inspire other to do the same. Maple Hill Auto Group believes in this community, in the need to celebrate the people who work, live, and play. For the customers who love their Subaru cars and the people who have yet to buy one, they know that Maple Hill Auto Group is the place to start.


Mattawan Little league Mattawan, Mi  –  JIM M

Mattawan Little league Mattawan, Mi

Many years ago I was introduced to Jim and Randi from Maple Hill Auto Group located in Kalamazoo, Michigan; through a little league friend. The first meeting went great with them wanting to know more about our league; from how many kids we have playing to learning about our facility and location. Also, what we do for our kids. I think this was my first time trying to sell to a salesman, but I felt very comfortable with both them after just a short while. Since then my relationship with them has been awesome. They are always willing to help our league out. I have been on the Mattawan Little League board for over 10 years. Last year, I decided to step down from the board because I have not had a child involved in four years. While on vacation, the President of our league asked for myself and Steve Thomas to come back and help with fundraising. My first call was to Randi and she said absolutely they would give us a donation-like they have been doing for the past several years. I met with them the very next day we talked and had a check within a day. I would say from other people I have talked to, that Jim is a generous man. He has been supporting other Little Leagues, local high schools, and local college's. And of course Randi she is such a great help as well.


It takes a Village!  –  Mia G

It takes a Village!

Hello, My name is Mia Geer and I handle Sponsorships/Donations as part of the Westwood Little League board. Without community support, we wouldn't be able to host over 450 players on our fields during our Baseball/Softball season. In 2017, we were able to have more than 500 players be part of our wwll family. We reach out to Maple Hill Auto every year and without hesitation, they come through to provide as our Major League Sponsor, as well as many other Little Leagues throughout the area. It really does 'take a village' to come together and be able to provide a fun, safe and friendly environment where our kids can come together to play ball! Maple Hill also helps provide vehicles for Parade route on opening day of Little League games.Thank you Maple Hill Auto for your dedication throughout the years and always providing during Little League season.


Love Your Animals  –  David Y

Love Your Animals

Maple Hill Subaru and the ASPC of Southwest Michigan Maple Hill Subaru is located in Kalamazoo, Mi, a thriving mid-size city that is home Stryker Corporation, Upjohn Corporation that is now part of Pfizer Corporation, and Western Michigan University. With a population that hovers around 75,000 people, Kalamazoo has always been a town that blended friendliness with a humble attitude. Each year Maple Hill Subaru hosts a number of charitable events ranging from the arts to athletic events to help the less fortunate. This includes events for the local chapter of the SPCA, SPCA of Southwest Michigan. The retailer also sponsors weekly adoption postings that are highlighted on local news network. For the past two years as part of the Share The Love event, Maple Hill Subaru has chosen ASPC of Southwest Michigan as its sixth charity. Maple Hill has truly embraced the Subaru Love Promise. On December 26th and 27th, Maple Hill sponsored a Share The Love pet adoption event at the dealership. Over 20 canine friends found new homes that day, helping Santa deliver new family member during the holiday season. To give back to the community, Maple Hill Subaru paid for half of the adoption fees during the event. This type of community events has a lasting impact on not only the organization involved but also the community.


Partnership helps create the next generation of musicians  –  Kalamazoo S

Partnership helps create the next generation of musicians

In February 2014, Maple Hill Auto group with Subaru helped bring world-renowned violinist Midori to Kalamazoo. Not only did Midori play as a soloist for a near-sold-out concert with the Kalamazoo Symphony Orchestra (in the middle of snowstorm!), but she also spent a week in the community, working directly with music students, educators, and parents. Each year, Midori chooses two communities to participate in her intensive Orchestra Residency Program, a week-long program designed to provide collaborative music-making opportunities that inspire and educate the next generation of classical musicians. Midori spent her time with many young Kalamazoo artists, but perhaps most exciting was the opportunity for 14-year-old Anna Nordmoe, who won the Kalamazoo Junior Symphony Orchestra concerto competition in November, earning the chance to play the last movement of Bach's "Concerto for Two Violins" with Midori in concert. Thanks to KSO sponsors like Maple Hill Auto Group, young musicians in Kalamazoo were given the chance of a lifetime - to meet and work first-hand with a rock star in the classical music world!


Race for Wishes inspires riders  –  David B

Race for Wishes inspires riders

In four short years, The Maple Hill Race for Wishes road race event has become a premier bike race and one of the marque events on the Michigan bicycle racing calendar. Even more important than the racing however, is the fundraising and awareness efforts that this race offers for Make-A-Wish of Michigan. Race for Wishes is the only bike race that donates all its proceeds to something greater than the bike racing itself. Here are a few of the quotes captured by participants of the event over the years: "I love racing! But I love racing for a cause even more. Make-a-Wish is a great organization" "I'm telling my friends and bringing them next year (racer for Illinois)" "At 17, Mark was diagnosed with bone cancer. Make-a-Wish granted Mark's wish of an MTB, but Mark never got to ride that bike. I'm donating my winnings in his honor." "The plaques with Wish Kid artwork are so much more meaningful than any other award I've ever received." I love being part of this event and hope to see it continue to thrive and grow for years to come. It is a big thanks to sponsors like Maple Hill and Subaru that we are able to put on such an incredible event for the community. - David Buick, Race for Wishes Race Promoter


Maple Hill Subaru inspires community involvement  –  Ashley M

Maple Hill Subaru inspires community involvement

Until I visited Maple Hill Auto Group, I had no idea how many Subaru owners have pets. After attending a fund-raiser held by Maple Hill Auto Group for the SPCA of Southwest Michigan, I found myself falling in love with the very animals they were helping to adopt. I began to volunteer for fund-raising events for the SPCA that Maple Hill Auto Group hosted. I am not sure how many hot dogs Jim Vandenberg has cooked over the years hosting events to improve the quality of life for so many animals. It's so fun to watch the faces of children when their parents say, "Yes, we can adopt this animal." I even fostered a dog. I am including a picture of Jason and me at the dealership. He went home with me that night. Maple Hill Auto Group recognizes the importance of strengthening the community where their customers and team members work and live.


Maple Hill Subaru partners with the International Mountain Biking Association  –  Amy S

Maple Hill Subaru partners with the International Mountain Biking Association

In 2013 the SWMMBA became a Chapter of the International Mountain Biking Association (IMBA). IMBA has had a long and positive relationship with Subaru. The SWMMBA is all about a great, outdoor, friends and fitness lifestyle. For the first time, in 2013, a major sponsor stepped up for our race - Maple Hill Auto Group / Subaru. Overnight they became the number one financial supporter of SWMMBA. As the returning Major Sponsor for 2014, Maple Hill Auto Group / Subaru has made the ongoing growth and success of the SWMMBA much more sustainable. The Maple Hill Auto Group / Subaru Fort Custer Stampede will be the 20-year celebration of mountain biking at The Fort.


Uniform sponsorship with Mattawan Little League  –  Mattawan L

Uniform sponsorship with Mattawan Little League

Mattawan Little League, a local youth organization, established in 1983, helps young people get involved in athletics. Like any non-profit organization, our Little League operates on a small budget, funded by player registration fees, but more importantly, we depend heavily on our fantastic group of small business supporters and corporate sponsors. I am proud that Jim, Randi and their team at Maple Hill Auto Group have been what we call our "Official League Sponsor" for a number of years. Maple Hill generously provides the funds to supply our 700 Little League players their uniform shirts.


Pet adoption & golf outing with SPCA  –  Wendy B

Pet adoption & golf outing with SPCA

I would like to thank Maple Hill Subaru for introducing me to the love of my life. My King Charles Spaniel, Romeo. I attended a golf outing that Maple hill Subaru sponsored for the SPCA last fall. They brought many puppies - including Romeo - to the event. I fell in love with him instantly and he has been a joy to me every day. Without the support of sponsors like Maple Hill Subaru, many of these dogs would not find good homes and - if at any other shelter - may have even been euthanized. Thank you for opening your heart to the SPCA and helping me to adopt Romeo.


Kalamazoo Loaves & Fishes flourishes with help from Maple Hill Subaru  –  Marvin K

Kalamazoo Loaves & Fishes flourishes with help from Maple Hill Subaru

As the primary non-profit food assistance organization in Kalamazoo County, Kalamazoo Loaves & Fishes is fortunate to receive a large amount of support from this generous community-Maple Hill Auto Group included. In late October 2013, a major sponsor unexpectedly dropped out of an event. We called Maple Hill Auto Group and within days the owner and customer service director visited our facility. Their commitment has helped us continue this important event, a 5k race that attracts over 1,000 runners, joggers, walkers, dogs and children to Downtown Kalamazoo for a non-competitive fun run through the holiday lights! As a result, nearly $10,000 and several thousand pounds of food was generated to help us achieve our mission-to feed hungry people and engage our community in the fight to end hunger. We will continue to reach out to Maple Hill, and are so grateful for their community involvement with our organization, and others as well.
