Community & Sustainability

Supporting communities now and into the future

Since our founding in 1957, Enterprise has been committed to making life better in the communities where our customers and employees live and work. Even as we’ve expanded to more than 7,600 locations across the globe, we remain true to that same commitment: supporting programs, practices, and partners that improve the quality of life in the places that we call home.

Our employees live this mission by donating their time and energy to mentor at-risk youth, supporting local food banks, cleaning up parks and volunteering at local homeless shelters. Of the $27.3 million that the Enterprise Holdings Foundation donated in 2016, more than $24 million went to fulfill requests from our employees to support community causes that they personally champion and actively support.

Giving back to our communities is just one element of our broader commitment to sustainability – to managing our business for the long term. From our vehicles, our car sharing and van pooling services, to planting 50 million trees, and investing in renewable fuel research, we are committed to sustainable transportation solutions for generations to come.

Since 1982, the Enterprise Rent-A-Car Foundation and our founders and owners, the Taylor Family, have made more than $1 billion in charitable gifts to thousands of nonprofits.


Fill Your Tank

$60 million over the next 6 years to fight hunger

We don’t often think about the ripple effect of hunger. How not having enough food leaves you running on empty to complete even the simplest of tasks. For the 1 in 8 Americans who are food insecure, hunger impacts their ability to work, emotional stability, their mental state and physical abilities. Enterprise Rent-A-Car is here to help people fill their tank. Through our Foundation, we’re donating $60 million over the next 6 years to fight hunger, providing support for local food banks across the country, Feeding America, Food Banks Canada and the Global FoodBanking Network.


1 in 8

Americans may not have enough to eat.

1 in 6

children is hungry.

 

When you have enough to eat, anything is possible.

Imagine all the places you can go with a full tank. You can explore new roads and take big steps forward.  With a full tank, you can stay in the game and always go the extra mile. But the reality is that 1 in 8 Americans doesn’t have a full tank – because they face hunger.  

That’s why Enterprise is pledging 60 million dollars over the next 6 years to fight hunger in communities right here at home – and across the globe.

Because when you have a full tank anything is possible.
