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.

Thing 1, Thing 2 and a Paul Moak Subaru!  –  Jackson M

Literacy is one of the Mississippi Children's Museums key initiatives and the exhibits, programming and outreach efforts correlate to support and promote early language skills development. The staff also work hard planning experiences that inspire children to not only develop reading proficiency but also to discover the delight that stories and reading can bring. One event especially dedicated to this is MCM's Dr. Seuss Silly Birthday which celebrates Read Across America Day and has become the largest single attendance day for the museum. "With a statistic of 1 in 2 elementary-aged Mississippi children failing to read at grade level, it is imperative to address gaps in literacy before formal education begins," says Susan Garrard, MCM President. "Literacy is fundamental to a child's educational development. If through celebrating Dr. Seuss we can inspire children to express their own whimsical creativity and to develop a love of reading and of books, then we have fulfilled our mission. Paul Moak Subaru continues to be a steadfast partner in these literacy efforts both with the Dr. Seuss Silly Birthday and our Once Upon a Fall Festival and we cannot thank them enough for their continued support."
