Corporate Citizenship & Philanthropy

For more than half a century, we have worked to be an engaged corporate citizen that makes a real difference in the communities where we live and work. Our company's foundation has contributed more than $200 million to thousands of local non-profits focused on community improvement, education and environmental stewardship. And, each year our employees contribute their time and skills to thousands of national and local organizations in the areas we serve.

Through the Enterprise Holdings Foundation, we donated $27.5 million in FY2015. Eighty-six percent of the grants made by the foundation fulfilled requests by employees to help community causes they personally champion and actively support.

Our Mission and Our Commitment

The Enterprise Holdings Foundation gives back and strengthens through charitable support the thousands of communities where our employees and our customers work and live.

We endorse and underwrite a variety of initiatives and causes throughout the markets where our company operates in support of four key focus areas:

  • We assist many local causes by providing a 50 percent match of our employees’ contributions to United Way campaigns throughout these communities.
  • We believe it is important to provide financial resources to worthwhile nonprofit initiatives that are actively supported by our employees, their spouses, and loyal customers.
  • We strive to provide more sizable special grants to nonprofit groups or causes of significant strategic or social importance to our company and our employees.
  • We support relief projects or causes the company deems important as they arise, such as natural disasters that affect our customers and our employees.

Our giving flows from the belief that we owe our success to the communities we serve, and we must support their good causes in return.

Thanks to the generosity of our employees, each year we hold one of the largest United Way corporate campaigns in North America.
