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.
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.

Thanks to the support of Stivers Decatur Subaru, The Adaptive Learning Center (ALC) will help even more children with special needs to achieve their educational goals. With funds received from Subaru’s Share the Love Campaign, ALC has added an additional partner school, The Frazer Center in Decatur, and will positively impact even more students in an inclusive environment. Through this new partnership with The Frazer Center in Decatur (which was founded to provide an inclusive community), ALC will reach an additional 185 children within multiple classrooms. Even with over 60-years of service to children and adults with disabilities, The Frazer Center staff became discouraged with their inability to appropriately serve The Center’s children. It quickly became evident that their challenges were affecting all of the children throughout their classrooms. As a result, The Frazer Center reached out to The Adaptive Learning Center for help. After multiple meetings and student observations a plan/partnership was put into place. ALC will provide 2 Inclusion Consultants who will work closely with the teachers and students over a 3-year period. In addition to providing appropriate teaching interventions, ALC will also help to implement “hands-on“ training techniques within the classroom. As a result, The Frazer Center Teachers will better understand how to encourage independent learning opportunities and increase the participation of children with special needs.
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society was delighted to partner with Stivers Decatur Subaru to deliver packages full of warmth, words of hope, and craft kits to patients of the Bone Marrow Transplant Center at the Winship Cancer Institute. John Stivers, owner of Stivers Decatur Subaru, drove a blue Subaru Outback, he strategically chose because it is the color of the hospital logo, full of care packages and delivered them personally. John holds a personal connection to LLS, as his wife is a Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma survivor and has been in remission for 15 years. We were honored to also have two patients join us. Mark and Cole, with masks adorned on their faces, were elated to have the opportunity to even step outside the confines of their rooms. John’s passion and enthusiasm were contagious and made it even more special and impactful for the hospital staff and patients. When asked how they distribute the blankets, Emily Bracewell, Unit Director at Emory Hospital, remarked that the staff “celebrates each patient’s day of transplant as their new ‘birthday.’ We give them one of the Subaru blankets, sing a birthday song and hang balloons on their door. This makes their transplant day special for them and their family to recognize a new beginning.” The process of a bone marrow transplant is arduous and we were happy to partner with Stivers to bring joy into these patients’ lives and were touched to hear the lengths taken to make such an important day so special for the patient.
The Adaptive Learning Center is honored to be selected as the Hometown Charity for Stivers Decatur Subaru for the second year in a row. The funds raised through this remarkable event go directly to help support Special-Education teachers and programs which include children with special needs in preschool classrooms with their typically developing peers. While this is a direct benefit to the children with special needs, there is an even greater benefit to the whole school community. Typically developing children are learning at an early age about individuals with some differences are really just like them. They want to learn and play and have friends too. By kids learning that differences don’t really make us different, they learn compassion and acceptance. This will make an impact in the entire school community as all are involved in supporting the children and families with special needs. The Adaptive Learning Center partners with 9 preschools around Atlanta reaching over 2000 children and families per year; with a message of inclusion, acceptance, compassion and LOVE for one and other.
Stivers Decatur Subaru is helping children experiencing homelessness receive a good preschool education so they start out on a good educational path. Part of the proceeds from the “Share the Love” campaign went to The Adaptive Learning Center’s (ALC) partnership with Our House. Our House, a Decatur nonprofit, is a preschool that serves children experiencing homelessness with their parents. ALC provides two teachers at Our House to support the children with behavioral and learning challenges. When children are in this difficult situation some of the effects are manifested through bad behavior and lack of attentiveness. ALC’s teachers have helped Our House with special needs children and others exhibiting challenging behaviors so all the children have a good learning environment. ALC has also helped the Special Needs “Diagnosed” children with Individual Education Plans (IEP) so they have a good foundation for starting kindergarten. The support from Stivers has been critical to these kids because their living conditions are so challenging. By supporting Our House, Stivers Subaru is helping bring stability to their education which is vital to their long term success. Thank you Stivers Decatur Subaru for helping ALC help some of our most challenged families in Atlanta.
Stivers Decatur Subaru has started driving kids with special needs to be included in typical preschools. Stivers Decatur Subaru gave the Adaptive Learning Center (ALC) over $47,000, the largest single donation to an individual charity in the southeast of all Subaru dealerships. This money was used to help pay for special-ed teachers to support special needs kids to be included in a typical preschool classroom. Without this money, special needs children are placed in a self-contained class and shut off from their typically developing peers. Everyone wants to be included and special needs kids are no different. When Special needs kids are included in a typical classroom they get role models to learn from on a daily basis. The typical kids get to learn differences and compassion at an early age. Teachers and parents are able to see how all can be included in an environment of learning. Stivers Decatur Subaru is making a difference in the Atlanta community by supporting kids with special needs to be included at the earliest age. This sets up a lifelong trajectory of inclusion for all involved. Thank You Stivers Decatur Subaru for your support!
