Community Partnerships

Supporting our local communities

Our role in the community goes far beyond banking transactions. Whether we’re investing in a business networking event, supporting charitable organizations or finding ways to be more intentional about diversity, equity and inclusion, Enterprise supports a wide variety of initiatives designed to improve the communities we serve.

Community Development

We partner with our communities in a variety of ways: from education and mentorship to volunteering and sponsorships. We seek out unique and creative partnership opportunities. Those take many forms, including:

  • Programs to incentivize philanthropic involvement from associates, such as volunteer time off for associates to donate their time to worthy causes and a matching contributions program
  • Community-based sponsorships and grants with philanthropic contributions made to 451 organizations in 2021
  • Community-based financial programs like tax credits allocated for projects involving low-income housing and New Markets Tax Credits that enable private capital investment into low-income communities
Loaves & Fishes
"Loaves and Fishes taught me how to stay focused and made me realize that I am a person. That people make mistakes and learn from them, and I can do what I need to be successful."
Dawn Hopkins, Shelter Monitor LOAVES AND FISHES

Diversity and Inclusion

We empower people to make meaningful contributions within our company and in our communities through programs geared toward diversity, equity and inclusion. We believe that diversity plays a vital role in driving economic growth, and our company reflects this commitment. The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Leadership Council and The Black Heritage Connection Resource Group are two examples of internal organizations within Enterprise that help us further this mission.

These networks are made up of a diverse cross-section of our associates who volunteer to improve our internal culture and external environment through honest dialogue and company initiatives.
