Campaign Overview
Special Olympics has been selected by Subaru to be one of five
organizations to participate in their fourth annual “Share the Love” event.
This year’s promotion will be held from November 19, 2011 – January 3,
2012. As in previous years, a donation of $250 is made for every new
Subaru vehicle sold or leased during the promotion to one of five
organizations as selected by the consumer. This year’s charities are:
American Forests, the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to
Animals (ASPCA®), Make-A-Wish Foundation, Meals on Wheels®
Association of America, and Special Olympics. Subaru has donated
nearly $15 million to charitable causes since the program’s inception
three years ago.

During the purchase process the consumer is presented by the dealer
with pre-approved collateral asking them to designate their preferred
charity. If they do not make their selection at the time of purchase, a
follow-up card is mailed to them to solicit the charity selection. If the
customer does not select a charity at all, the $250 is split amongst all five
participating charities.

“Share the Love” with Special Olympics at Your Local Subaru Dealer

We’re proud to be one of five charitable partners in the Subaru “Share the Love” event. Subaru knows their owners care. That’s why they created the
“Share the Love” event. You get a great deal on a new Subaru and they’ll donate $250 to your choice of five charities, one of which is Special
Olympics. Over the last three years, they’ve donated nearly $15 million dollars to charity. They hope to donate another five million by sharing the love
again this year.

Funds donated to Special Olympics will benefit our programs in local communities across the United States helping us to provide greater services for our
athletes.

Whether you are in the market for a new Subaru or you know someone who is, be sure to pick Special Olympics as your “Share the Love” event charity and
help support our athletes. Learn more by visiting Subaru.com/share.

Dear Friends of Special Olympics (Program):

We are pleased to share the news that Special Olympics has been selected by Subaru to be one of five charities to participate in their fourth annual Share the Love event.
Subaru knows their owners care. That’s why they created the “Share the Love” event. You get a great deal on a new Subaru and they’ll donate $250 to your choice of five
charities, one of which is Special Olympics. Over the last three years, they’ve donated nearly $15 million dollars to charity. They hope to donate another five million by sharing
the love again this year.

This year’s promotion will be held from November 19, 2011 – January 3, 2012. A donation of $250 is made for every new Subaru vehicle sold or leased during the promotion to
one of the five charities as selected by the consumer. Whether you are in the market for a new Subaru, or you know someone who is, be sure to pick Special Olympics as your
“Share the Love” event charity and help support our athletes. Learn more by visiting Subaru.com/share.

Subaru donations will help Special Olympics, among other things, to:

  • Maintain our high-quality State Games in which more than (XXX) athletes bring their toughest competition

  • Provide more (TBD: Healthy Athletes screenings, more opportunities for Young Athletes to develop, more robust local competitions—what are some of the things you could
    make happen with some additional funds?)

  • Enable us to reach out to the additional (XXX) adults and children with intellectual disabilities across (STATE), and around the world

Funds donated to Special Olympics will benefit our programs in local communities across the United States helping us to provide greater services and programs for our athletes.

As always, your participation is vital to Special Olympics fundraising success. You can spread the word about “Share the Love” by visiting Subaru.com/share or
