Communities are only as strong as the opportunities, safety and support they provide to their children. That’s why the Enterprise Holdings ROAD Forward initiative is aimed at addressing the widening opportunity gaps across three key focus areas—early childhood development, youth health & wellness and career & college preparation.
In 2020, the Enterprise Holdings Foundation pledged $55 million over five years to organizations that advance social and racial equity. Because when we deepen Respect, we expand Opportunity. When we expand opportunity, we enable Achievement. And when we enable achievement, we unleash the power of Diversity in our neighborhoods and workplaces.
Of the full pledge, $20 million was distributed to four nationally-renowned nonprofit partners to enhance their work to support young people in underserved communities: The Obama Foundation’s My Brother’s Keeper Alliance, UNCF, Girls Inc. and Parents as Teachers.
At the heart of ROAD Forward are the values that have been part of Enterprise Holdings since its founding—but now, more than ever, we feel a sense of urgency to ensure a thriving community and wealth of opportunities are available to everyone.
