Enterprise Holdings is also a longtime supporter of the United Way. In 1969, the company held its first employee supported United Way campaign, and since that time, employees have continued to show their support. To date, contributions to local United Way chapters from employees, combined with the Foundation’s 50 percent employee match, total more than $300 million.

Thanks to the generosity of Enterprise, National and Alamo employees, each year the Foundation holds one of the largest United Way corporate campaigns in North America. We support United Way campaigns in the U.S. and Canada as well as the “Give as You Earn” program in the U.K.
