From funding community revitalization projects to strategic partnerships that place financial services support centers in underserved areas, Enterprise actively seeks out opportunities to make a direct impact in our communities.
The impact of affordable housing on individuals and communities is hard to overstate. Among many other benefits, affordable housing contributes to financial stability, access to jobs and population diversity. As part of our focus on community building, Enterprise seeks out opportunities to support affordable housing through direct financing for developments, funding mortgage subsidy programs and sponsoring Federal Home Loan Bank grants.
Financial Education and Outreach
In addition to educational videos and other training available on our website, we also have dedicated community development officers who offer one-on-one and small group financial education on various topics, such as budgeting, improving credit scores and becoming a home buyer. Our community development officers also work with local nonprofits to provide financial literacy education to a wider audience.
Enterprise University provides an opportunity for you to join your peers in the business community for a 90-minute virtual class designed to sharpen your business acumen. We also offer a college edition and on-demand options. These programs have become an integral part of our communities, and we are proud to make them available at no cost.

Giving back through volunteer work is a way for our associates to show appreciation and respect for the communities in which they live and work. We encourage our associates to make efforts and invest time to improve the quality of life in their communities. That’s why we prioritize the opportunity to help support the nonprofit organizations — national and local — that our associates believe in. Associates receive up to eight hours of paid time-off annually to volunteer at the 501(c)(3) organization or school of their choice.
In addition, many of our associates serve on nonprofit boards and executive committees. Their leadership at these organizations allows them to leverage their skills and gain new ones, and helps to strengthen the organization.
Giving back to the community has been a part of Enterprise DNA since the beginning. Our founders understood that, as a community-focused bank, we have a unique opportunity to partner with organizations to support and strengthen the communities in which we operate. We support the primary pillars of: Human Services, Education & Job Training, Community & Economic Development and Community Arts. Apply for funding.
