Enterprise | United Way


our first-ever United Way campaign was
actually back in 1969 with our founder Jack Taylor so at the time there were 80
employees all 80 employees donated to the cause and actually collectively
brought in almost $3,000 so you can fast for them to 2016 and as a company
Enterprise Holdings and all of its affiliates actually donated over 25
million dollars to the United Way which brought us to I believe about the 10th
largest donor that year alone we are partnered with United Way it’s it’s it’s
a great partner the way our companies set up even though we’re a large company
we operate as small decentralized businesses we are in all the small
communities the United Way the perfect partner for that I have donated to the
United Way 30-plus years I did it for several reasons first it’s a credible
organization and secondly it gets back to the community and thirdly I was
raised to give back for what I’ve been given through my life. One of our
founding values is we strengthen our communities one neighborhood at a time
and I’ve been donating to the United Way through enterprise now for 15 years and
I think what I like so much about the organization is all the money flows back
into the communities where we work where we live and where we serve
and there is probably no single best thing that we could do as an
organization than to give back to the communities where we live to really help
give back for all the things that they do for us as an organization. I think the
biggest thing to do is just realize that the impact that it has on people and
being able to kind of share some of the stories and how I personally been
impacted by that in my life is really probably the biggest thing that I would
share whether that’s my wife stories or the stories that I’ve heard from the
folks who have come and spoken to us you really are impacting people and it’s
not about a dollar above a paycheck or anything like that it’s really the
impact that you’re having on people through all these amazing organizations
that you know if way works with
