Falling in love with the mountains through skiing and snowboarding can be life changing, and that's why Stevens Pass and Carter Subaru have teamed up to offer FREE season passes to Washington State's 5th graders. Since 2013 over 8,450 students (a value of over $3.5 million) have taken advantage of this snowsports program that encourages kids to get off the couch and play outside. “This partnership allows us to connect with the next generation of skiers and riders,” says Jennifer Moran, Executive Manager of Carter Subaru. “It demonstrates our firm commitment with Stevens Pass to achieve a common goal of creating a new, healthier generation that has a passion for sports and the outdoors”.

Thank you for welcoming Guide Puppies of Seattle to Carter Subaru and allowing us to socialize our puppies with you. As an all-volunteer local puppy-raising group for Guide Dogs for the Blind, each of our puppies is raised in a volunteer’s home from 8 weeks old until approximately 15 months old in which they learn basic obedience, good house manners, and above all, how to be social. That’s why we really appreciate you inviting us to Carter Subaru so we could hang out with your staff and customers in a warm and welcoming environment. Just allowing our puppies to socialize with you means so much to all of us and really makes a big difference. And our pup-in-training “Impreza” was totally "impressed" with all of you. Looking forward to doing this again and again with Carter Subaru!
KIRO Radio 97.3 FM, Carter Subaru and Treehouse, a nonprofit organization addressing the essential education and enrichment needs of kids in foster care, raised over $502,000 for local foster children during the 28th Annual Holiday Magic Fundraiser on December 14, 2016. The Holiday Magic program helps foster kids by raising money to provide each child in the program with one significant holiday gift along with support for programs and services throughout the year. For the fifth consecutive year, Holiday Magic exceeded half a million dollars in donations and cash during the 12-hour fundraiser. “Thanks to your generosity, thousands of kids across Washington State will feel the love and support of our community and enjoy a magical holiday!” said Treehouse CEO Janis Avery. Founded in 1988, Treehouse helps over 7,000 kids in foster care each year through programs that help them succeed in school, fulfill key material needs, and provide important childhood experiences every child deserves. Treehouse is also one of Carter Subaru’s Share The Love Event hometown charities in which they received over $43,000 in 2016.

Love. It's the only thing you make more of by giving it away. So when Subaru had their annual Share The Love Event and donated $250 to your choice of six charities when you purchased or leased a new Subaru, Carter Subaru picked two hometown charities that are close to our hearts: King County Search and Rescue, and Tree House. King County Search and Rescue is one of the largest search and rescue organizations in the country and also one of the busiest. On average, they respond to a mission every three days. In 2015, they had about 125 missions, volunteered almost 19,000 mission hours, and drove over 180,000 miles in their personal vehicles, not including training missions. They are proudly 100% volunteer and provide their search and rescue services at no cost to the citizens of King County and upon request to other counties in Washington. Tree House provides kids in foster care with the academic and other essential supports they equally deserve to help them graduate high school. Treehouse envisions and strives to create a world where every child that has experienced a crisis of parenting has the opportunities and support they need to pursue their dreams and become productive members of our community. Children in foster care live in an uncertain world, and the stability that most children take for granted is not guaranteed to foster kids.

At Carter Subaru, we believe that everyone should have a chance to lead a healthy life, which is why we are proud to partner with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) and the Floyd and Delores Jones Cancer Institute at Virginia Mason. In July 2016, Carter Subaru spread a little bit of love and warmth by delivering 120 chenille blankets and messages of hope to cancer patients at Virginia Mason. As the world's largest health organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research, education and patient services, LLS's mission is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and to improve the quality of life of patients and their families. Virginia Mason leads the way in cancer care in the Puget Sound area and has survival rates among the best in the nation at every stage. With no cancer being "typical", Virginia Mason designs and develops a unique course of treatment for each patient with an experienced multidisciplinary team of physicians and healthcare professionals who are skilled in the diagnosis and treatment of leukemia and lymphoma.

Unfortunately the monarch butterfly population in the United States has declined by more than 90 percent in recent years, so Carter Subaru is helping out! Throughout April, Carter Subaru is partnering with the National Wildlife Foundation for the Butterfly Heroes Program. This program's goal is to bring awareness to the declining population and connect our community of gardeners and kids, families and schools alike to help the monarchs and other pollinators. Creating monarch and pollinator habitat is a wonderful opportunity for observing one of nature's most miraculous occurrences. The unique transformation the monarch butterfly undergoes during its life cycle from egg, caterpillar (larva) and chrysalis to the delicate yet resilient butterfly is wonderfully intriguing for students and teachers alike. Stop in to Carter Subaru to learn more about the program and pick up some complimentary milkweed seeds to do your part at home!
Sexual and domestic violence is a silent issue, and the Angel Band Project is working to break the silence and inspire people to engage with this issue through the transformative power of music. Carter Subaru is proud to support the Angel Band Project in their hope to provide healing for survivors and foster a society that's not only willing to listen, but ready to change. Music therapy has the power to heal - it reaches in and grabs you in a place that words alone could never touch. Music also has the power to break through and engage people in a way that's easier for them to listen, and hopefully, begin to understand.
Cascadia Art Museum is the first museum dedicated to NW art from the late 19th century through the 1960s, defined by the waters that flow from the Cascade Mountains to the Pacific Ocean. With six galleries and a multi-purpose education room the 11,000 square foot museum is part of the adaptive re-use of one of Edmonds' most iconic, mid-Modern century buildings. Their Inaugural Exhibition supported by Carter Subaru introduces viewers to a prolific body of works produced by significant regional artists active from 1900 and leading up to the formation of the group in 1939 and through the 1960s.
The Woodland Park Zoo's Wild Wise program offers King County students in grades 4-7 a high-impact multimedia indoor presentation and a hands-on inquiry based outdoor exploration. Designed to hone their observation and investigation skills as they study and spend time in Washington habitats, this practical education program showcases the amazing habitats of Washington and the animals which call them home. The program also focuses on skills used by professional biologists and naturalists to learn how to identify and recognize native flora and fauna. In addition, students will see what people are doing to protect our environment right here in Washington, and what they can do to help.
In our continued pledge to support LGBT, Carter Subaru is proud to sponsor the Seattle Lesbian & Gay Film Festival. Held annually in October since 1996, the Film Festival has grown into the largest event of its kind in the Pacific Northwest, gaining industry and audience recognition for showcasing the latest and greatest in queer film, from major motion picture premieres to emerging talent.

A leading voice in the community, Mary's Place empowers women to reclaim their lives by offering community, acceptance, hope and dignity. Their work keeps struggling families together and provides practical tools and resources that help women find housing and employment.
At Carter Subaru we understand that our children are our future leaders. The League of Education Voters is the only Washington-based organization working to improve public education from early learning through higher education. They shape the debate, build powerful coalitions, and grow the grassroots to achieve meaningful reform and ample, equitable, and stable resources for education. Their advocacy agenda supports our vision that every Washington student has access to a public education that provides the opportunity for success. And their legislative agenda proposes a vision for public education that guarantees that every Washington student has the opportunity for a high-quality education from early learning through the first two years of college.
As part of our Subaru Love Promise, Carter Subaru actively pledges to actively preserve the environment. During April our stores collected unwanted electronic waste customers had dropped off. By responsibly recycling this E-Waste, we helped prevent toxic compounds from entering our soil and waterways. In April we also planted another 800+ trees in the Mountains to Sound Greenway to offset our carbon footprint. Thank you, our customers, for joining us in our effort of protecting our precious environment and helping us all to be on the road to carbon neutral.

Carter Subaru is proud to have supported Tree House over the last few years by selecting them as our preferred local partner for Subaru's annual "Share The Love Event". Our partnership has resulted in thousands of dollars donated to keep kids in foster care on track to graduate from high school and achieve their dreams. Because of Carter Subaru, Tree House was able to serve more than 7,000 kids in foster care last year in the Seattle area, providing education coaching and support, access to extracurricular activities and summer camps, and the clothes and school supplies they need to fit in and succeed at school. Together, Carter Subaru and Tree House are creating a road to hope and possibility for youth in foster care.
Carter Subaru realizes that today's students are tomorrow's leaders, and is committed to supporting our community's future leaders by providing resources to outstanding LGBT students. We are proud to support Seattle's GSBA Scholarship Fund that benefits undergraduate students who exhibit leadership potential, demonstrate strong academic abilities, and who are actively involved in school and community organizations.
As long time partners of Seattle's two-time WNBA Champions, Carter Subaru supports many Seattle Storm programs, including their "Go Green" initiative. By sharing environmental values, together we're committed to reduce our collective environmental footprint. For example, if you carpool to a Storm game in a Subaru, you'll park free in the Carter Subaru Garage. In addition, we have our exciting 3's for Trees program - for every 3-pointer our Storm players get, Carter Subaru will plant a tree in the Mountains to Sound Greenway. So far we've planted over 1,500 trees!
Carter Subaru has supported the Stinky Spoke Ride since they got started several years ago. This fun and muddy 18.6 mile uphill bike ride is always on the worst weather day of the year in January... and that's where you get the Stinky part from. Carter Subaru is proud to sponsor Stinky Spoke because they in turn benefit Little Bit Therapeutic Riding Center which brings equine-assisted therapies to children and adults with disabilities.
Carter Subaru and the Seattle Seahawks have partnered with KIRO Radio's Charity of the Month. We're committed to investing in our future and our children's future by helping support a different local charity every month.
Native trees are critical to the health of the Pacific Northwest. Trees improve air quality and reduce greenhouse gases, shade creeks and streams cooling water for threatened salmon, reduce erosion and filter pollutants, improving water quality, and providing important wildlife habitat. Since 2008, Carter Subaru has planted over 100,000 native trees and shrubs in the Mountains to Sound Greenway, the scenic byway along the I-90 corridor stretching from Seattle over Snoqualmie Pass into Central Washington. Carter Subaru is literally "Planting a Forest... One Test Drive at a time!" Here's how it works: Test-drive any Subaru at Carter, and Carter will plant one tree in your name. When you buy a Subaru, Carter will plant three more trees. By doing this we're helping reduce your carbon footprint even further, so together we're all "On the Road to Carbon Neutral".
