For any new Subaru vehicle purchased or leased at one of the more than 630 retailers during that period, Subaru and participating retailers donated a minimum of $300 to the customer's choice of charity. National charity partners, including the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals® (ASPCA®), Make-A-Wish®, Meals on Wheels America and National Park Foundation, received nearly $7.4 million of the donations.
