From Nov. 18 through Jan. 3, Subaru of America, Inc. will give customers the opportunity to bring joy back into the lives of children with critical illnesses by electing to donate to Make-A-Wish® after purchasing or leasing a new Subaru vehicle.

As part of the Subaru Share the Love® Event, Subaru will donate $250 for every new Subaru vehicle purchased or leased to the customer's choice of participating national charities, including Make-A-Wish.


Make-A-Wish has been a national beneficiary of the Subaru Share the Love Event since 2011. Since then, Make-A-Wish has received a total of more than $26 million in donations from Subaru through the annual event. The partnership has allowed Make-A-Wish to provide more kids with wishes that can lead to better health outcomes and a higher chance of survival.


"Wishes can be a powerful source of hope and healing for a child fighting a critical illness, and they wouldn't be possible without our community supporters like Subaru and its retailers and customers," said Richard K. Davis, president and CEO of Make-A-Wish America. "We are so grateful to once again be part of the Share the Love Event that has played an integral role in making more than 2,700 life-changing wishes come true over the last 11 years."


"For the 11th consecutive year, Subaru is proud to continue supporting Make-A-Wish as a national charity recipient of our annual Share the Love Event," said Thomas J. Doll, president and CEO, Subaru of America. "At Subaru, we are passionate about positively impacting local communities nationwide, and the Make-A-Wish mission of granting life-changing wishes to children with critical illnesses allows us to bring that passion to life."


Through the 2020 Subaru Share the Love Event, Make-A-Wish received a $2.8 million donation. Local retailers could also...

...select either one or two local hometown charities where customers could direct their support. In 2020, many Subaru retailers chose their local Make-A-Wish chapter, generating more than $757,000 in locally driven donations to grant wishes in their community.


This year, 30 Subaru retailer locations have chosen 22 Make-A-Wish chapters as hometown charities, to which customers will be able to direct their support. To learn which local Subaru retailers have selected Make-A-Wish chapters, visit Subaru.com/share.
