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. 

How is Stohlman Subaru of Sterling dedicated locally to the Love Promise?

Our Love Promise can be seen in various partnerships with local charities and non-profits. We're grateful for the opportunity, not only to be a part of our community, but to serve it as well.

Love Promise Stories from Stohlman Subaru of Sterling

Subaru and Stohlman Subaru of Sterling believe in making a positive impact on the communities in which we live and work. We uphold that belief through our Love Promise Community Commitment. Every month, we select inspiring stories from customers and partners from around our area who strive to support our collective commitment and feature them here

Crushing Cancer At Both Ends Of The Leash Partner  –  Ulrike S

Stohlman Subaru of Sterling became our "Platinum Partner" in supporting The Canines-N-Kids Walk, Run, Cure Event. Stohlman was a huge hit, the MANY staff members that attended won the hearts of the crowd. Everyone was so kind & generous with gifts and coupons. Being a leader in the community with recycling and local activities is just a fraction of this companies support within our community. Stohlman Subaru also supports dulles little league, South Loudoun little league's & the Loudoun County Schools. Thank you Cathy Stohlman and your fabulous employees for joining our cause this year to put an end to the cancers children and our canine best friends BOTH develop - devastating cancers including bone and brain cancer, lymphoma and leukemia. We look forward to next years event & crushing cancer.

K-9 Caring Angels appreciation letter  –  SONNY M

K-9 Caring Angels would like to thank Stohlman Subaru for their generosity and support choosing us for their 2018 local charity as part of Subaru’s annual “Share The Love Campaign”. K-9 Caring Angels are humbled by the charity, effort, and drive of Stohlman’s management, staff, and great customers. Through their combined efforts, the Share the Love Campaign raised $22,583.00 toward our mission to acquire, train, certify and donate psychiatric service dogs to those men and women who have sacrificed much in service of the United States in our armed forces. From Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) to traumatic brain injury and Military Sexual Trauma. We lose 22 soldiers daily due to P.T.S.D. and our goal is to help as many as we can that would benefit from a psychiatric service dog in their lives. With your help, we will. It was perhaps best said by one of the first veterans we donated a service dog to Eaan Green: “She gave me back something that I didn’t have which was peace. I sleep better at night, she wakes me up when I’m having a nightmare… I don’t have this high anxiety anymore. She has been just great, and I’ve had the best time ever because I can always look at my hip and she is there. She is there with me at work, at school, at the store, at my kid’s practices … anywhere, she is with me… she is my backup, the best kind of backup there is, all she wants is unconditional love and food.”K-9 Caring Angels

Stohlman Subaru Loves Learning in Loudoun County  –  Legacy S

When local businesses invest in our local schools of Loudoun County, it helps everyone in the community. Stohlman Subaru of Sterling is one of the best local businesses we have had the pleasure of meeting. These folks came out in Subaru-Style and donated A TON OF BOOKS to our library here at Legacy Elementary. The people delivering the books were clearly employees, there was a mechanic, salesman, service & marketing staff. Our students were able to see and hear about the kindness from a local family owned Subaru Dealership & that sparked many conversations. We talked about the different jobs at a car dealership and how they all have to work together as a team to get the job done. Many of the students have parents that own a Subaru & they were quite proud to be associated with the brand. The customers and employees of Stohlman also wrote notes to the students, donated lots of school supplies and book markers too. These books and supplies are crucial to the continued learning of our children. Thank you for being a leader in Loudoun County and supporting our local schools, teachers & students. We love you Stohlman Subaru of Sterling!

The Greenest Dealer in NOVA  –  Jen C

It's no secret that Stohlman Subaru of Sterling (used to be of Herndon) is committed to being an active partner in educating the community about recycling and keeping the planet healthy. They went above and beyond this year at our SpringFest event by having engaging activities, many new Subaru cars on display & a stellar staff that was beyond helpful. Patrick and Jimmy are quite the hula hoop-ers too! Stohlman Subaru of Sterling is a Certified Green Dealer and they actually have all their recycling totals publicly displayed for everyone to see. Thank you, Stohlman, for all your support as we seek to reduce littering and to encourage recycling, reusing, reducing consumption and promote community action together.

Thank You for Sharing Hope & Warmth!  –  Jenny H

On Wednesday, July 18th Stohlman Subaru prepared to deliver blankets to Novant Health for the third year in a row! Patrick and Adam from Stohlman Subaru arrived at Novant Health excited and ready to give cancer patients messages of hope, blankets, and bags. Upon arrival, the LLS, Stohlman Subaru, and Novant Health teams cheerfully worked together to bring the blankets inside. Everyone gathered together for a picture in the new lobby of Novant Health. It was a great opportunity that included not only the Novant staff, Stohlman Subaru representatives, and LLS staff, but also local patient ambassador Rich Zavadowski who was declared cancer-free in 2014 after a successful clinical trial. After taking photos, Kandice, one of the unit nurses took a few minutes to explain to Adam and Patrick how important the blankets are to their patients. Kandice shows how she cares by putting them in welcome kits for new in-patients on the oncology floor. Every single patient that is admitted receives a blanket! She then took the Stohlman Subaru and LLS staff on a tour of the new public space, including Novant Health’s incredible new healing garden. For the end of the tour, Kandice brought us through the infusion unit to meet the patients that Subaru is able to directly help with their donation. Both Patrick and Adam left Novant Health knowing that Stohlman Subaru helped local cancer patients stay warm and feel cared for.

Commited to making a difference in Loudoun County  –  susan l

For the past several years, FOHA (Friends of Homeless Animals) has been the recipient of the Stohlman Subaru of Sterling Share the Love campaign. We are so grateful to Stohlman and to our community for their generosity. Our mission is to keep as many rescue dogs and cats from unnecessary euthanasia, allowing them the chance to live full lives. In return, we are able to create fur families in the community, bringing people and pets together, living happily ever after. Without the support of Stohlman Subaru of Sterling, our animals could face the worst possible outcome. Instead, Stohlman continues to donate to our organization, plus they are the most gracious hosts to several of our pet adoption events throughout the year. Thank you Stohlman, and thank you, Stohlman customers, from all of us at FOHA, humans and pets.

Stohlman Subaru Loves to Care!  –  Jenny H

Stohlman Subaru of Sterling shared the love at Novant Health UVA Health System in Manassas, VA on July 10th where they delivered 80 blankets, 10 arts & craft kits and several messages of hope for patients. When we arrived upstairs Ali Avera, a registrar in the Oncology Center, and Gail Behrle, a staff member from one of the in-patient units were there to greet us. They were both incredibly pleased and grateful at the prospect of having blankets to give to incoming patients. They both expressed that they believed the care cards and blankets would help keep patients’ morale up and stay warm. Kelly Persons, director of Novant Health’s foundation, explained how, “It will be so meaningful to our cancer patients to know that they are thought of by the folks in our local Subaru dealerships. Through the Subaru Loves to Care donations, our cancer patients at Novant Health UVA Health System are being cheered on, with blankets and care kits, during their journey to good health!” Rich echoed similar thoughts and told us that the value of a blanket is so important to patients for many reasons. He told us that not only do the blankets help patients stay warm, but also give them hope. They let patients know that people in the community truly care about them and their health. Rich explained to the Stohlman Subaru representatives that the blankets they were delivering were going to make a world of difference to the patients in the hospital.

Subaru and NWF Love the Earth!  –  Jen M

Many, many thanks to all who came out to help with yesterday's Subaru/National Wildlife Federation gardening event! It went off without a hitch, despite the rain in the morning and a couple of injured slugs and grubs! We couldn't have done it without you and really appreciate all that you did to support our event. It was a terrific way to generate community support and natural habitat stewardship. (Again, with the notable exception of a few injured grubs and slugs!) The PTA Gardening Committee truly appreciates the effort and enthusiasm that went into helping our event be such a success. It was fun seeing the kids so excited about being in the dirt and finding all of the creatures. We look forward to seeing the perennials really take off and become plants that are enjoyed by all.

Subaru Loves the Earth - E-Waste Event  –  Danielle S

With your help, we were able to prevent 12,957 lbs of carbon emissions from polluting the atmosphere. This is equivalent to saving 497 trees, 2,203 gallons of gasoline, 18,784 plastic bottles, and 86,399 aluminum cans. Thank you for helping strengthen the Subaru Love Promise!

Second Chances, Thanks to Subaru  –  Susan L

Subaru has become an integral partner in Friends of Homeless Animals (FOHA) lifesaving mission. We were very fortunate to receive a recent grant that we have dedicated to medical care, allowing us to rescue dogs and cats that would have otherwise been euthanized. Nala is a very special recipient of that lifesaving care. Nala, an Australian Shepherd mix was in a county pound, scheduled to be euthanized because of a vision problem despite being the sweetest dog ever. FOHA was able to help, thanks to our grant from Subaru. We knew with a little specialty care, this sweet dog would be able to live a full, healthy life as a cherished family member. Meeting her it became clear that she was blind and was clearly something she had endured for a while. A Veterinary Ophthalmologist diagnosed her with severe glaucoma in both eyes and said that the pressure in her eyes was very painful, requiring emergency medications and ultimately surgery to remove the eyes since there was nothing that could be done to restore her vision. Having the surgery took away so much pain from this sweet dog, greatly improving her quality of life. Nala even managed to charm her wonderful foster family into adopting her! They decided they could not live without the joy that Nala brings every day. There are so many pets that just need a little extra care to get them to their forever family and Subaru has now made it possible for FOHA to reach pets like Nala, whose lives depend on us. Thank you, Subaru!
