Enterprise to Honor Fisher House Foundation at GBTA
In celebration of the growing travel industry, Enterprise Holdings is honoring Fisher House Foundation at next week’s Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) Convention in Orlando. Fisher House Foundation is a military nonprofit organization that provides free temporary lodging for military and veterans’ families at hospitals.
Enterprise Holdings – which owns and operates the National Car Rental and Enterprise Rent-A-Car brands – is donating $10,000 to Fisher House Foundation’s 25th anniversary “Home Away From Home” campaign to help ensure the Fisher House program will be around to serve military and veterans’ families for another 25 years.
“We wanted to show our commitment to the travel industry in a meaningful way at this year's GBTA Convention,” said Brad Carr, vice president of corporate business for Enterprise Holdings. “As a result, we are extending our partnership with Fisher House Foundation and collaborating with them to ease the travel burden for military families visiting loved ones.”
Visitors at the convention can join Enterprise’s support for Fisher House Foundation by donating frequent flyer miles and hotel points to the nonprofit’s Hero Miles and Hotels for Heroes programs or by making a pledge here.
Since its inception, Fisher House Foundation has saved families of service members and veterans receiving treatment at military and Veterans Affairs (VA) medical centers an estimated $282 million in out-of-pocket costs for lodging and transportation.
“We are honored and privileged to have such a wonderful partnership with Enterprise,” said Ken Fisher, Chairman and CEO, Fisher House Foundation. “We will use this very generous donation to continue our work of serving military veterans and their families. We are truly blessed and see this gesture as a way of saying thank you to those who have given this country so much.”
Enterprise Holdings’ latest gift for the “Home Away from Home” campaign comes on the heels of a three-year commitment to Fisher House Foundation made earlier this year by its philanthropic arm, the Enterprise Holdings Foundation. The multi-year partnership is helping to fund the nonprofit’s Heroes’ Legacy Scholarship program as well as the construction of new homes on the grounds of major military and VA medical centers.
