You can make your charity selection on subaru.com/share, by calling 1-800-SUBARU3, or by filling out a self-addressed, prepaid envelope provided by your retailer. You will be asked to provide your name, contact information, Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) and charity selection. Subaru will then make the donation on your behalf. Visit www.subaru.com/share to learn more about the program, and participating charities.What if I want to split the donation (i.e. select more than one charity) or vote more than once?
Each customer who has purchased or leased a new Subaru (2013 or 2014) can either allocate the $250 donation to one charity, or split it amongst any number of participating charities. Only one donation (of $250) is made per vehicle sale or lease.How long do I have to make the charity selection?
While we encourage customers to make their charity selection at the dealership at the time of purchase, selections will be accepted through January 31, 2014.I bought a car, but forgot to submit my charity selection. Where does the money go?
For those who do not make their charity selection by January 31, 2014, Subaru will distribute the donation evenly among the five national charities.How will I know that the donation was made?
You will receive a "thank you" letter from Subaru and the charities that received your donation once all of the submissions have been processed. Customers who do not make their charity selection by January 31, 2014 will receive a letter from Subaru thanking them for their purchase.By what date will Subaru make the donations to each charity? How much money is expected to be donated?
Subaru will make the donation to each charity by March 1, 2014. During last year's "Share the Love" event, Subaru donated $5 million, and Subaru is hoping to donate up to $10 million this year. Over the past four years of the event, $25 million have been donated.Do I get a tax credit for this donation?
Because the donation is being made by Subaru to each of the participating charities, donations are not tax-deductible to purchasers.Why do some retailers have 5 charity options and others have 6 charity options?
This year, Subaru of America offered the retailer community an optional opportunity to select a sixth charity, local to their community, to join the national five charities in the "Share the Love" event. While some retailers are participating in this option, others chose to participate solely with the five nationals charities.For dealerships with no sixth charity (solely the 5 national organizations)
