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.

*$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.

Consistent support when it was needed the most!  –  Erika K

The Subaru Superstore of Chandler is an invaluable support to Arizona Friends of Foster Children Foundation (AFFCF). AFFCF is a non-profit organization whose mission is to promote the self-esteem and enrich the lives of children in foster care in Arizona by funding activities, education and other needs that provide them with quality experiences while they live through very difficult circumstances. AFFCF is incredibly grateful for the Subaru Superstore of Chandler's support both through Share the Love and in the midst of COVID-19. When it was needed the most, the Subaru Superstore of Chandler provided extra support in two significant ways. One of the populations that AFFCF supports are young adults who are aging out (or have aged out) of foster care and are pursuing their educational and career goals. This population was drastically impacted when classes abruptly shifted to online formats and many found themselves unemployed from jobs they had held either on campus or in the service sector. As AFFCF worked alongside other organizations to help address these young adults' basic needs, the Subaru Superstore of Chandler was there to help. Their entire staff went a step above to collect food for the Basic Needs Drive that AFFCF organized in partnership with Thrive Arizona. The food they collected supported young adults who needed extra help during the COVID-19 crisis. Many of those served were part of AFFCF's employment and career development program (Keys to Success) or college students who are recipients of the AFFCF Post-Secondary scholarship. As time went on and students adjusted to online classes, the Subaru Superstore of Chandler continued their commitment to support AFFCF's Post-Secondary scholarship students by providing funding for end-of-semester care packages. Care packages provide encouragement for final exams and let students know that others are cheering them on. While the Subaru Superstore of Chandler was unable to host a care package "packing party" with volunteers at the store as they did at the end of the Fall 2019 semester, it was still wonderful to receive Subaru's support. All of the AFFCF Post-Secondary scholarship recipients (73 in total) received (or will receive) a care package filled with snacks, candy, a Starbucks gift card, socks, and a note of encouragement. Receiving the care packages, especially during this time, meant a lot to the students. As one student wrote: Thank you so much for the care package! I just received it today. It is so amazing to be thought of and cared for during this time. Thank you for your constant support! The thought means so much to me and the hand-written note was a pleasure to receive. Thank you to the organizations that make this possible! AFFCF truly appreciates the Subaru Superstore of Chandler's continued support and especially thanks Lisa Cvijanovich, who always goes above and beyond. Proudly submitted, Erika Klotz Post-Secondary Program Coordinator Arizona Friends of Foster Children Foundation / (602) 775-5786


Subaru Superstore of Chandler in a continuing partnership with the Arizona Friends of Foster Children Foundation (AFFCF) Keys to Success program, as an employer partner and through the annual Share the Love campaign.

This food will go to youth who have aged out of foster care and need extra help during the current COVID-19 crisis.

Thank you to our team members at Subaru Superstore of Chandler for their support of AFFCF and Keys to Success!

My Hot 2001 Forester  –  Penelope J

Family visiting from the east coast and I were stuck in traffic on the 101 at afternoon rush hour. Phoenix hit 103 degrees and the engine temp was moving up.I poured in a couple bottles of water and called Chandler Superstore. Subaru Service arranged for me to bring her at 7 the next morning, when it was cooler. That was Friday and they found her (original) radiator had to be replaced. It had to be ordered, but Monday morning she was fixed up and ready to go for another 19 years. PS thanks for yummy breakfast while I waited.

Subaru Loves the Earth / April 2019  –  Michael W

The Subaru Loves the Earth initiative continues in April and showcases our promise and commitment to the environment. The Subaru Loves the Earth initiative is an ongoing program throughout the year, which shows our commitment to the environment. The United States generates about 230 million tons of trash annually—and less than a quarter of it gets recycled. The only way to intercept hard to recycle items before they reach the landfill is to collect and recycle them to create something new. Subaru retailers and TerraCycle are continuing our partnership to intercept common, hard to recycle items, give them new life, and turn things like snack bags into usable items like park benches, bike racks and even playgrounds, which can be donated back to local community partners. By supporting environmental causes were helping make our world a better place to live and raise our families.

A "Wave" of an Experience  –  Naomi M

LLS- AZ Chapter was honored to partner with Chandler Subaru Superstore for a second year in a row for Subaru Loves to Care! The partnership made a huge “wave” of a delivery to Phoenix Children’s Hospital. The day started with a special delivery to our friend, Sophie. During the exclusive visit with Island Princess “Moana” Sophie received a personalized Subaru activity kit and a blanket. The family was so thankful, sending a note saying, “Thank you so much for bringing Princess Moana to see Sophie and also for the kind gifts….. She was very excited to see all the art supplies! Even Sophie chimed in saying, “Thank you for coming to see me. Thank you for the presents! Hope to see you soon.” The delivery continued at the hospital as blankets were personally handed to patients. One patient was particularly moved as Moana asked him to sing with her. He sang his heart singing “How Far I’ll Go” (from Disney’s Moana animated movie). He then gave a handshake to Chandler Subaru’s Superstore General Manager, Mike Wasserman, thanking him profusely for the blanket and spending some individualized time with him. Then the staff invited us in their tradition of singing a special song to a patient who just ended his chemotherapy. It was such a heartwarming experience!

Subaru Superstore and the Butterfly Heroes Program  –  Subaru S

Over the winter months, monarch butterflies in Mexico begin to make the journey north to the United States in early spring. Soon after they leave Mexico, pairs of monarch's mate. As they reach the southern United States, females will look for available milkweed plants to lay eggs. Monarchs are truly spectacular migrants, because the butterflies know the correct direction to migrate even though they have never made the journey before. They follow an internal "compass" that points them in the right direction each spring and fall. The monarch migration is one of the greatest natural phenomena in the insect world. Here's where Subaru Superstore of Chandler is here to help. We have partnered with the National Wildlife to help these majestic creatures combat rapidly declining populations in recent years. For the month of April as part of the Subaru Loves the Earth initiative, Subaru Superstore will have a butterfly habitat planter on-site. The planter will be full of milkweed to help these beautiful monarchs lay their eggs. Come by and check it out. We will also be giving out milkweed packets to create your own butterfly garden at home!

The impact of this very generous donation to the Chandler Education Foundation will affect many CUSD teachers, students and the Chandler community as a whole. With a consistent rise in college tuition, students entering the Chandler School District and the push from an educational standpoint, as to the importance of continuing their education, the foundation has seen an increase in need for funding. Thank you to Subaru for your generosity to the Chandler Education Foundation and the Chandler community.

Donations to the CEF  –  Lindsie S

I wanted to reach out and formally thank you for your extremely kind and generous donation to the Chandler Education Foundation. Your gracious gift has allowed me the opportunity to pursue my National Board Teacher Certification. This endeavor will not only challenge me as a teacher, but it will directly impact the lives of my students by ensuring that they have the best teacher possible. While, NBTC is an extremely worthwhile experience, it is also a costly one. Having the financial support from your dealership means that I focus on completing my certification without worrying about how I'm going to pay for the courses. Again, thank you so very much for your kind donation and your exemplary dedication to teachers and public education.

A Big Thank You!  –  Melissa B

Payne Junior High School is forever grateful.

Love Grows As Subaru Connects With Foster Youth  –  Diane D

We are all better for meeting and working with James on a daily basis," said Lisa Cvijanovich (Co-Owner of Subaru Superstore and in charge of our Community Philanthropy efforts).
