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.

How is McGrath Evanston Subaru dedicated locally to the Love Promise?

McGrath Evanston Subaru is committed to the Subaru Love Promise! We work with and actively participate with numerous local charities, faith-based groups, and service organizations. At McGrath Evanston Subaru we have developed Lease4Love. Every time someone leases a new Subaru at McGrath Evanston Subaru we donate $50 to charity. For example, in the fall of 2021, a sizable Lease4Love donation is being made to the local school districts to help provide school supplies, including backpacks, headphones, pens, crayons, water bottles, and healthy snacks.

Three kitchens were found abandoned in the Cook County Forest Preserves and brought to C.A.R.E. by Skokie Animal Control; all found homes following McGrath Evanston Subaru's Adopt-A-Pet Event.

Philly gets a home! - Megan L

Philomena, one of our "Underdogs," finally has a new home! "Philly" is a sweet 10-year-old black lab mix who arrived at C.A.R.E. in early July from Chicago Animal Care and Control, where she had been since April! C.A.R.E. featured her in our promotions as part of the Subaru Loves Pets partnership with McGrath Evanston Subaru and ASPCA. We are so happy for this resilient pup and her new dad!

Northwestern University Welcomes Partnership - Sean W

Northwestern Sports is proud to have McGrath Evanston Subaru at Ryan Field this season with a great interactive fan experience. Our `Cats fans loved spinning the prize wheel for purple stadium gifts, like foam fingers and rally towels. The Subaru Outback and Subaru Forester on display seemed very popular too.
