Whether they live in our homes or in the wild, Subaru is committed to keeping all animals safe and healthy.
Loving the environment means more than loving the great outdoors. It means working to preserve it.
It’s our goal to make the pursuit of knowledge available to as many minds as possible.
In a perfect world, hunger would be history and hope would be commonplace. We believe a perfect world is possible.
We should all have a chance to lead a healthy life. We’re aiming to give as many people that chance as we can.
At Mark Miller Subaru, our Love Promise to the Utah and the Salt Lake area can be seen in our partnerships with local nonprofits and charities. We're grateful for the opportunity, not only to be a part of the Salt Lake community, but to serve it as well.
At the Malinois Foundation we are so blessed to be able to provide service animals to our Veterans in need. This is the story of one such Veteran we are currently trying to help. "I deployed to Iraq in 2007 & worked in a field hospital. Seeing the things we did in the hospital were ugly in more ways than can be explained. As I returned, it was a battle to return to civilian life. Bouncing from job to job, town to town, I never had a purpose or a plan. At 35 years old, I finally decided to go to school. I am half way through my associates degree. Even in a class room full of students, I still feel alone, depressed & secluded. I try to stay at the school late into the evening.I hate the loneliness I feel. Loneliness seems to be my only companion. I hate being alone. One of the other students has a service dog to aid him. He explained to me the comfort the dog brings him & how it helps keep him calm. The dog keeps him centered. It occurred to me that’s what I need in my life. A service dog to keep me calm, centered, & most of all, away from the suicidal thoughts that join me late at night. I want to be happy; I want to have the same companionship that was in the Army; I want peace. I struggle with school, but the only thing that keeps me going is the bigger long term picture. For me, that is not graduating, but staying alive and not succumbing to the demons that plague me. I want the love of a companion. The everlasting love that can come from a dog. And also a best friend."
Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Intermountain Area knows all about how important it is to share the love, and Mark Miller Subaru has proven time and again that they do, too. Based in Salt Lake City, Utah, Mark Miller Subaru has a long history of community involvement and partnership with causes that make a difference in the world. In 2016 they joined again with one of their favorite local Charities (that’s us!) and made a huge push to raise funds for the House that helps keep families close while children are undergoing medical treatment away from home. MM Subaru’s ‘Share the Love’ event not only raised significant funds for families in need, it also raised awareness about RMHC’s mission to support families with a seriously ill or injured child. And as an added bonus, they’re as dedicated to their customers as RMH is to their guest families! We’re delighted to partner with Mark Miller Subaru, and are so grateful for all the love they’re willing to share!
Thanks to Mark Miller Subaru and their family. They have embraced what it means to be part of a community. It’s not just about donations but about being involved in the community, caring about the community and sharing with the community. Mark Miller Subaru teamed up with me, Thurl Bailey, Big T, (NBA retiree, played for the Utah JAZZ) and my foundation, BigTlc, we hosted basketball clinics for the month of September for some very deserving, and underserved children, that would have never had the chance to learn skills and leadership from a professional. The small clinics were amazing and inspiring to give these kids a chance to smile and play. Not only did Mark Miller Subaru provide a place to host the clinics, but each child received a t-shirt, water bottle & basketball. As in the photo, we all need a little lift now and then to make that slam dunk. And that’s what Mark Miller family has done, lifted us so we can lift others. We also feel blessed and grateful for an amazing donation from Mark Miller Subaru to our foundation, Big Tlc, that we can continue to host not just basketball camps but sports camps for well-deserved and underserved children. They will learn life skills at these camps in fellowship, sportsmanship and leadership. Part of these camps will include their parents, as to learn side by side with them what means to just be a good person and good to one another. Well done Mark Miller Subaru family we want to give you the game ball!! Much love, Thurl Bailey
Thanks to the 2015 Share the Love event, Mark Miller Subaru supported The Children's Center in Salt Lake City, Utah in the renovation of our Imagination Playground. Not only did Mark Miller Subaru help us raise over $34,000 for the playground, the staff at the dealership also volunteered time and assisted us in removing the existing equipment and installing the new equipment. The dollars raised and the manual help were instrumental in making this project possible. Perhaps viewed as "just a playground" it is important to realize that our new Imagination Playground is so much more than that. For many of our children (ages 0-6) served at The Children's Center, some form of trauma has been a central part of their very young lives. As a result, these young children have lost the ability to play and use their imagination in a typical and important way. The creation of our Imagination Playground has allowed our children to once again experience play and regain parts of their childhood that were perhaps lost. We are so grateful to Mark Miller Subaru and Subaru of America for their ongoing support of local communities and national organizations who play a critical role in reaching those who need it most. The video shot by Mark Miller Subaru illustrates beautifully the incredible joy experienced by our children as a result of this support. Thank you!!
The Utah AIDS Foundation puts on the Salt Lake AIDS Walk every year. In recent years fundraising and participation have declined. However, this year, with the help of Mark Miller Subaru South Towne, we nearly doubled our participants and raised over $62,000. Overall the event was a huge success. Not only did Mark Miller Subaru South Towne make a monetary donation, they also dropped off t-shirts which turned out to be incredibly helpful because we were not expecting so many participants and we ran out of t-shirts! Subaru saved the day! We are so grateful to have them as a community partner and sponsor.
There are few experiences in life that bring people of all ages, sex and gender identities, sexual orientations, religions, races, color, and abilities. Mark Miller Subaru is proud to have created an experience this past summer which brought more than 100,000 people of all diverse backgrounds together through our #leaveyourMARK initiative. Over the past three months, Mark Miller Subaru "took to the streets" & participated in roughly 25 days of local events where we proudly invited people - ALL people - to #leavetheirMARK on a specially wrapped 2016 Subaru Outback. Our eagar participants left notes of love, encouragement, and oftentimes left silly cartoons as a way to express their unique personalities & passions. From messages proclaiming "Love Mother Earth" to a fun-loving dinosaur roaming a forrest, these notes and drawings were daily affirmations that good exists in our world. Most importantly, though, ALL people had a chance to #leavetheirMARK on this special Subaru which provided them an empowering sense of connectivity to one-another. It was moving beyond explanation watching a wheel-chair-bound blind man color next to an aging woman who, herself, stood next to a five-year-old black child. This is proof that, while people may be different, diversity is beautiful.. as beautiful as the work of art shown in our video. Diversity is love, and 'Love is what makes a Subaru, a Subaru.'

The Butterfly Heroes are at Mark Miller Subaru! The beloved and beautiful Monarch butterfly is a familiar favorite among children and adults alike! Sadly, the decline in milkweed plants that are the only natural home for Monarch larvae has caused the Monarch population to plummet by over 90 percent in recent years. To help raise awareness for this issue, Mark Miller Subaru has partnered with the National Wildlife Federation for the Butterfly Heroes program as part of our Subaru Loves the Earth initiative during the month of April. Do you love butterflies as much as we do? Would you like to learn more about how you can join us in our effort? Stop by either or Midtown or South Towne location to get information on the Butterfly Heroes program, pick up a pack of seeds to start your own butterfly habitat, and help save these beautiful creatures.
At Mark Miller Subaru we teamed up with our Home Town charity, Fourth Street Clinic, to conquer homelessness here in Salt Lake City. So we loaded up a Forester with blankets, jackets, gloves and more to keep them warm!
Mark Miller Subaru loves pets. We truly do. Is there anything better than a tail wagging or a quiet purring as your walk through the door? Many owners gathered at both our locations to keep their pets safe with a microchip. Banfield Pet Hospital was amazing and so were our friends over at Humane Society of Utah. Over 200 pets are now safe!
We were proud to be apart of the 2015 Fall Fundraiser Party in its 22nd year. This is the largest fundraiser of the year for the Utah Avalanche Center and 90% of the event costs are donated, so nearly all of what participants spend for an evening of food, drink, prize drawing, socializing, music, and great auction items goes directly to paying for the avalanche advisories and education that winter back-country users use all winter to have fun and stay safe.
A beautiful day greeted many golfers and supporters on the morning of the 20th annual Mark Miller Subaru Charity Golf Tournament. All proceeds benefiting the Humane Society of Utah and the Children's Center. Over $4,500 was donated to both charities. The donations will provide many amenities to beloved pets and resources to children and their families!
Mark Miller Subaru was proud to sponsor the Urban Arts Festival. We loved the creativity that we saw, from all types of artists. Graffiti Murals littered the area bringing a great artistic vibe to the Gateway Mall. Tons of fantastic local rappers gave us real, local jams and helped us dance our way through the day.

Since 2010 we have been a very proud sponsor and supporter of the Utah Pride Festival. This year was the biggest and best yet as the LGBT community gathered in downtown Salt Lake City. We featured a very special piece at our booth in which people could write what "Pride Is" to them on the official Subaru Outback. Mark Miller Subaru plans on supporting for years to come.
On May 14th we had the pleasure of working with a close partner of ours, TreeUtah, to clean up the Jordan River. The Jordan River extends throughout the Salt Lake Valley and is home to many animals and has a great paved bike path. Many use this trail to remain active, relax and picnic with their families.
Subaru of America is truly leading the way for keeping our earth clean and green for many generations to come. During the Subaru Loves The Earth campaign they teamed up with All Green Electronics Recycling for a massive event. Mark Miller Subaru was proud to back that and gathered our own electronics in the showroom. On top of this effort as a dealership we planted another 2,000 trees with TreeUtah to support our own green health in Utah.
Cody, Chris, & Madison have been super supportive of the Utah Avalanche Center and our mission to keep people on top of the Greatest Snow on Earth. They have attended and supported several of our events and made a major donation, all to support the community and a cause they care about. Look at all they are doing for the community and the smart choices they are making to maximize their environmental responsibility - these guys really care about doing well by doing good and have been great to work with. I wish other companies would all be as great to work with.
Partnering with Mark Miller Subaru for the Do Good Feel Good Event 2015 was an absolute pleasure! Mark Miller helped to raise $13,353.75 for CAWS during this event. This donation will help CAWS save the lives of hundreds of kittens during this summer. We are so grateful and proud to have partnered with Mark Miller. It is so wonderful to know that there are businesses working so hard to support the organizations in the community that they serve. Thank you Mark Miller Subaru!!!
HEAL Utah has truly appreciated Mark Miller Subaru's commitment to improving our environment-- whether through adding solar panels to their dealership, planting trees, or partnering with local non-profits like HEAL to make Utah a better place to live. Mark Miller Subaru truly leads by example in everything they do-- and we appreciate the very generous ways they've supported HEAL's mission over the years to promote renewable energy, clean up Utah's air, and protect public health from nuclear, toxic, and dirty energy threats. Finally, Mark Miller Subaru not only sells some of the cleanest vehicles on the market--their PZEV models-- they've encouraged state leaders to adopt overall stricter vehicle standards for new cars so we can all breathe a little easier. Thanks for all you do!
The Wasatch Front Subaru Retailers and Mark Miller South Towne never want us to lose our pets! On Feb. 14, 2015, the Humane Society of Utah and Mark Miller South Towne hosted the first quarterly Subaru Loves Pets Event for the year. Free Avid microchips were offered to the public as a community service to increase the likelihood of owners finding their lost furry loved ones. Bringing awareness to the plight of homeless animals in Utah and encouraging the public to microchip their pet as a safe, permanent form of identification, the first Subaru Loves Pets Event was a great success. Over 700 Utah pets now have the means to find their way home in the unfortunate event the pet goes missing. The Humane Society of Utah is grateful for the sponsorship and support from Subaru and looks forward to future collaborative events to service our community and our beloved pets.

Subaru is not only a car, but a lifestyle. That is why this partnership works in such an organic and promising way. The lifestyle that Garbett & Mark Miller Subaru can offer is going to make a huge impact on the SLC Market! It is a pleasure to partner with a company that is as passionate about sustainability and "Green" living as Garbett, and look forward to have a great future!

To the manager, My name is Lundy Wren. I and my granddaughter Kathryn McKeever came to your dealership on June 10, to look for a car. She lives in Cedar City, Utah and had driven up late the night before. We only had one day to get a deal done because she had to be back for work on Wednesday and by the time we reached your store it was late in the afternoon. Manny came out to greet us and right away I felt at ease with his easy demeanor. I could tell right off there would be none of the high pressure sales tactics we had encounter in most every other dealership we had been to throughout the day. He patiently showed her car after car until she found one she loved and let her drive it. It was a White 2013 Subaru Legacy. He took us into your waiting area and offered us refreshments while we got the process started. Both men were extremely knowledgeable of the products and their jobs and took excellent care of us through the entire process. They really seemed to care about us. If they were just acting then they are extremely good actors. I don't think it was an act, I think they really are good at their jobs and really do care about the people they come in contact with. If these two fine gentlemen are any indication of the caliber of people you have working there then it's understandable why you've been in business so long. Please pass my thanks and kudos on to both of them and thank you so much for having them there to help us. Sincerely, Lundy M. Wren
My first car was a Subaru. I bought it used and abused and it still ran like a champ. I was in love. Eventually, I had to part ways with my beloved GL but I always knew I wanted another Subaru. Years later as a business owner I was approached about partnering on events with Mark Miller Subaru. I, of course, did not hesitate because although I no longer owned a Subaru, I was still a fan. Time went on and several events later I began to realize several things. Subaru itself was amazing. It really had a unique interest in the community and Mark Miller Subaru not only supported events at my store they also graciously contributed to events for the Sugar House community. Pretty soon I had a Subaru again and more and more of my customers followed suit. Do you blame them? Those who drove Subarus were like some crazy family and it was good to be part of the family again. Before I bought my second Subaru I had been hesitant about buying a new car. Okay maybe hesitant is an understatement-I was actually petrified. At this point, I had never had a car payment in my life and was very hesitant to even consider buying a new car. I began to talk to the Event Coordinator, Chris Woolston about my trepidation. He assured me that buying a car from Subaru would not be the experience I was so frightened of.
United Way Day of Caring We're always happy to lend a helping hand. At this event, we spent the morning helping with basic landscaping at Head Start Salt Lake and many other constructive projects.
2013 Rally Into Spring Subaru Meet More than 120 vehicles and 250-plus people attended this fantastic event. A BBQ was available, live music streamed over speakers, and Subaru owners had a great time catching up.
Mid-Week Mountain Bike Race Series The series is founded on offering a race environment for all ability levels at an affordable price - $15. Additionally we offer the opportunity for families to get out together or for a parent to get their children started in mountain biking.
Tree Utah and Project Oxygen For every car we sell in 2014, we're planting a tree with a local organization TreeUtah and the Salt Lake County "Million Trees" foundation.
Utah FACES This year, more than $900 dollars was raised for Utah FACES to help in the fight of pet homelessness.
Coffee Wednesday Mark Miller Subaru reaches out to the community with an event called "Coffee Wednesday" on a weekly basis. Customers and employees suggest a local coffee joint, and we spend two hours socializing and getting to know our community. And the best part? With a simple Facebook "like," coffee is on us. It's a joy to sit down and simply get to know our customers and local business owners! People are encouraged to show us their Subie keys for an extra bit of swag. All are welcome; your choice of beverage or warm cup of joe awaits you. Know of any local coffee shops in Salt Lake City that Mark Miller Subaru should check into? Be sure to email us those suggestions at firstname.lastname@example.org. Don't miss the next stop. Check in on our Facebook page. We can't wait to spend a few hours with our Subaru Fam. Sincerely, Mark Miller Subaru Team
Discrete Clothing My name is Julian Carr, professional skier and founder of Discrete clothing. My work - and 2011 Subaru Outback - take me all over the country. In the last 2 1/2 years, these are all the places I've adventured to in my Outback: Aspen, Boulder, Whitefish, Los Angeles, Yellowstone, Sun Valley, Salt Flats, Breckenridge, Vail, Alta, Snowbird, Solitude, Park City, Snowbasin, Stevens Pass, Bozeman, Missoula, Teton Pass MT, Whistler, Portland, San Francisco, Denver, Ecola Point (Oregon), Bend, Venice, Malibu, Yosemite, Tahoe, and Jackson Hole. I've had many times where I thought I was going to run out of gas in a blizzard in the middle of the night - with the needle so far below empty, it was impossible the car kept going - but it did! I've pulled up to important business lunches, impressing my clients with the car, helping me land new accounts. I've pulled into countless ski resorts with heads turning checking out my incredible wrap job displaying Discrete and Mark Miller Subaru. I could go on. At the end of the day, my car and I have a very tight bond. I am a Subaru driver for life. I love my Subaru Outback. -Julian Carr
Adam Barker Photography My name is Adam Barker, and I make my living as a professional active lifestyle and outdoor photographer. Clients rely on me to produce exceptional work, regardless of the obstacles. I need to be able to rely on my vehicle to get me where I need to be, when I need to be there. I have that reliability with my Subaru Outback. Even better, I have a team of passionate, trustworthy individuals behind that vehicle. Mark Miller Subaru and Subaru of America have been key components in helping me go further, climb higher, and dig deeper in my quest to capture the micro-seconds that define our most memorable moments. My vehicle, and my relationship with the good folks at Mark Miller Subaru have been integral in helping me capture some of my most memorable imagery, like this classic bend of sacred water in Montana. I know that there are very few places my Subaru can't take me. And that's as good as any camera body or lens in my quiver. They say that getting lost is just another way of saying "going exploring". Here's to many more years of getting lost with my Suby! Adam Barker www.adambarkerphotography.com 801-550-9141

Environmental Awareness When the Mark Miller Subaru South Towne and Midtown stores in Salt Lake City say they're green, they mean it. Environmental awareness is part of the business plan. In fact, the dealership group has an environmental mission statement. Mark Miller Subaru has made improvements to the facilities to reduce waste at both locations. The car washes collect and recycle much of the used wash water, which ends up saving about 75 gallons per car wash. Recycled materials make up most of the floor and wall coverings in the dealerships, including the service drives and service bays. The locations adjust lighting in the building based on available sunlight, which reduces electricity usage. Refurbished bathrooms use less water and reduce paper trash.
Do Good Feel Good EventSince 2011, Mark Miller Subaru Midtown and South Towne locations have generated more than $250,000 in donations toward the annual Do Good Feel Good Event. Every April, Mark Miller Subaru donates $75 to a local non-profit for every car sold. Customers can select which charity to support. In 2013, their options were as follows: Boys and Girls Club of Salt Lake, HEAL Utah, The Ronald McDonald House, Special Olympics, Utah FACES, and the YWCA! This year, five brand-new charities will participate in the Do Good Feel Good Event. At the event's close, they hold a gathering at either Mark Miller Subaru South Towne or Midtown to celebrate! Each non-profit has their own booth on site and can teach individuals what they do and how they impact Utah. All proceeds from the event go toward the charities as well. Every year, we look forward to the Do Good Feel Good Event and how much it gives back to our community.
