Enterprise Offers Initiatives to Support Veterans and Families

The Enterprise Rent-A-Car Foundation is renewing its initial three-year, $3 million commitment to the Fisher House Foundation with a second three-year, $3 million donation.

Like the previous commitment, this latest donation will be distributed to Fisher House — a nonprofit organization that provides no-cost lodging to the families of veterans receiving treatment at military medical centers — as three annual $1 million gifts.

Each year, $750,000 will be earmarked for the Heroes’ Legacy Scholarship program, which is open to the dependent, unmarried children (under age 23) of those who have fallen in battle and those who have died or have become disabled through their active military service since Sept. 11, 2001.

The remaining $250,000 will be allocated for building homes on the grounds of major military and Veterans Affairs (VA) medical centers.

Enterprise is teaming up with Progressive Insurance, the National Auto Body Council (NABC), and other military-friendly organizations for the fifth annual Keys to Progress program, which is donating 115 refurbished vehicles to military members and their families. Since its inception in 2013, the program has donated more than 500 vehicles to veterans.

Just as it has the four previous years, Enterprise Rent-A-Car is providing six months of automobile insurance to the recipient of each donated vehicle. Progressive is working with local NABC vehicle repair centers to recycle and donate the refurbished vehicles. The vehicles were fully restored as an extension of the NABC’s Recycled Rides program.

For the third consecutive year, Enterprise Car Sales is providing active U.S. military members, veterans, and dependents with a prepaid maintenance package with their purchase of a used vehicle throughout the month of November.

The offer — valued at $300 — is valid in all states, except California and Oregon, and is redeemable at any Firestone Complete Auto Care, Tires Plus, and Hibdon Tires Plus location. In California and Oregon, Enterprise Car Sales dealerships are offering Kelley Blue Book (KBB) trade-in value plus an additional $750 to active U.S. military members, veterans, and dependents.
