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.

Love Promise Stories from Baierl Subaru

Baierl Subaru Loves Learning (and Science)!  –  Amber T

Baierl Subaru Loves Learning (and Science)!

A very special thanks to all our customers who bought a vehicle in August during our #SubaruLovesLearning event. We were able to donate 150 award-winning AAAS science books to Rowan Elementary School in your name!


Baierl Brings Warmth, Hope to Cancer Patients  –  Breanna S

Baierl Brings Warmth, Hope to Cancer Patients

Baierl Automotive is well-known for their philanthropic ties to the Western PA community, so it was no surprise when they stepped up to the challenge of making cancer treatment more comfortable for local patients. For their annual “Subaru Loves to Care” event, Baierl Subaru partnered with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) to donate blankets to 80 patients at the Baierl Pavilion cancer center at UPMC Passavant. All of the patients were excited and appreciative for this surprise gift. This simple gesture went a long way toward making chemotherapy a little more bearable for them. One patient, Judith Moellenbrock, wheeled her IV pole out into the hallway with a smile to thank William Baierl, the dealership’s Executive Manager. In addition to the blankets, Baierl Subaru provided 10 arts and crafts kits for children who are at the cancer center either accompanying a family member to treatment, or who are battling the disease themselves. Baierl Subaru’s support means so much to LLS, as well as the patients and families we serve. Thank you, Baierl, for being such an outstanding community partner.

Subaru and NWF Love the Earth!  –  Lori W

Subaru and NWF Love the Earth!

Our Garden of Wishes held time capsules full of students' written wishes for the school year. As the school year was ending, our wishes were dug up and the earthen holes were replanted with pollinator plants received from Baierl Subaru and NWF. Students think this new pollinator garden will definitely make some wishes come true - for people and animals and all wildlife! One of Falk School's guiding wishes is: We want our students to have a reverence for nature. So all students, k-8, spend time exploring, relaxing, and working in our habitat restoration project known here as FALK WOODS.


Pennsylvania's Best 2015  –  bob s

Pennsylvania's Best 2015

Baierl Subaru continues (in our minds) to be an excellent representative of what Subaru is all about. We are repeat customers even though a large volume dealer is half the distance away from home, and that should tell you something. Subaru continues to be the most progressive and customer oriented car maker one could hope for. We feel among the most privileged to be part of the Subaru family...

How things have changed  –  David E

How things have changed

First: Buying a new car was NEVER going to be on our bucket list. It was considered comparable to buying a sweeper from a traveling salesman. We've heard all the lines before, "You got to buy now, this price isn't good tomorrow." Oh how things have changed. Frank at Baierl Subaru in Pittsburgh changed all that 2 minutes after we walked in the door. The certified used Outback that we found on their web site was sitting on the show room floor that night. Frank walked over and said, "If you like this deal,(and we did) I've got an even sweeter deal your gonna love sitting outside" He nailed it. 30 minutes later my wife and I were signing papers for a 2015 Subaru Outback with everything we were looking for and even the color. For the first time in our lives, Frank made that experience enjoyable, exciting and rewarding.

Baierl Bears  –  Terry K

Baierl Bears

Baierl Subaru provided 20 Baierl Bears to young patients at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC to help brighten their Christmas holidays. There is no greater gift than paying it forward especially when you can make a child smile. Our deepest thanks and gratitude to the wonderful people at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC for finding owners for this year's Baierl Bears.


Long-term support for Baierl Family YMCA  –  Kathleen N

Long-term support for Baierl Family YMCA

The Y is a place where people come together to not only pursue their own goals but also to give back to the community. We support each other so that, no matter what the circumstance, everyone has the opportunity to reach their fullest potential. It's a lot like a family and Baierl Automotive has been part of our family for over a decade. Baierl's ongoing support of the Y is a terrific example of how community leaders step-up and pitch-in. Through their generosity, kids have learned about courage, self-confidence and teamwork through camping programs. Families have been able to access critical resources for their most basic needs like food and child care. And, through their example, our community has learned what it means to be there for each other. The support from Baierl Automotive and its employees has meant a great deal to the Y and to our participants. Baierl looks out for their neighbors and that means a lot.


Baierl Subaru Long-standing Partnership with Sarah Heinz House  –  Mary Ellen M

Baierl Subaru Long-standing Partnership with Sarah Heinz House

Sarah Heinz House is proud of its long-standing partnership with the Baierl Family of Dealerships starting with one of our cherished alumni, the late William Baierl. Mr. Baierl attended our programs as a youth growing up on Pittsburgh's North Side and continued his involvement with Heinz House as an esteemed benefactor. During our building expansion in early 2000, Mr. Baierl was at the forefront of our capital campaign contributing more than 1.5 million dollars toward the construction of a state of the art, Gold LEED-certified indoor pool and gymnasium. Today, the Baierl Aquatics Center and Gymnasium at Sarah Heinz House are the centerpieces of our youth development programs for more than 3,000 area kids each year. Mr. Baierl's legacy also serves as a vital community resource for our adult and senior citizen members who use these facilities for exercise and wellness programs. In recent years, Mr. Baierl's nephews, Bill and Bob along with their dealership family, have carried on his philanthropy by supporting our annual fundraisers, serving as judges for our 'Youth of the Year' awards, and coordinating the purchase of two vans to transport kids to enrichment events and our summer campsite. We greatly appreciate our partnership with the Baierl Family of Dealerships which helps in our effort to provide safe, quality after school and summer programs for area youth and we look forward to future collaborations.


Baierl Subaru Supports Boys & Girls Clubs of Western PA  –  Mike H

Baierl Subaru Supports Boys & Girls Clubs of Western PA

For more than a decade, Baierl Automotive had endorsed the mission of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Western Pennsylvania and has helped make a real difference in the young world of thousands of children in the region. Over the years, financial support provided by Baierl Automotive has been directed towards after school educational programs at nine Boys & Girls Club Branches which translated into measurable progress in math and reading scores for children. Support of our annual golf tournament subsidized summer camp scholarships for single parent families, and very generous vehicle discounts and donations enabled the Clubs to transport children safely for field trips and sporting events. In addition, our staff were equipped with the right vehicles to respond to pick-ups of donations that added tremendous value to our program centers. This past year alone, we were positioned to provide weekly pick-ups of nutritional snacks and distribute throughout our network of facilities in the County. We were honored this past year to present Baierl Automotive with the Boys & Girls Clubs of America National Champion of Youth Award recognizing their sincere passion to make the growing up years count for children. Giving back to the community is important and the good people at Baierl Automotive always seem to do all the right things for all the right reasons.


Commited to Helping the Western PA Humane Society  –  Julie R

Commited to Helping the Western PA Humane Society

We purchased two Subaru vehicles in the same week from Baierl Subaru. We were very impressed with the service that we received from our salesperson. He was very professional and knowledgeable, while at the same time placing no pressure throughout the sales process. Even more so than that, I want to commend Baierl Subaru on their commitment to the Western PA Humane Society. I am an avid volunteer dog walker and I see firsthand all of the good that they do. I was committed to buying a Subaru (it ended up being two when my husband fell in love with the Legacy), but when looking on the Subaru website, they recommend 4 Subaru dealerships that are closer to my house than Baierl Subaru. I specifically drove out to their location because of their support of WPAHS. So if you're wondering if your support of the humane society does anything for your business, in this case, it certainly did. Thank you for continuing to support this important cause.
