Enterprise Holdings Foundation Donates $3,500 to Colonial Williamsburg

The Enterprise Holdings Foundation has donated $3,500 to the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation for general operating support. The foundation is the philanthropic arm of the company that, through its regional subsidiaries, operates the Enterprise Rent-A-Car, National Car Rental and Alamo Rent a Car brands.

Annual unrestricted gifts support Colonial Williamsburg’s educational programming and other important foundation activities. Corporate donors that make a gift of $500 or more are recognized with membership in the Business Forum, Colonial Williamsburg’s corporate donor society. The Business Forum includes three giving tiers that commemorate important 18th-century businessmen in Williamsburg – Tarpley Circle ($500 – 749), Prentis Circle ($750 – 999) and Greenhow Circle ($1,000 or more).

“Many 18th-century Williamsburg businessmen were patriots who played a major role in forming our democratic republic,” said Colin Campbell, president and chief executive officer of the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation. “Thanks to the support of 21st-century businesses such as Enterprise, Colonial Williamsburg can continue its mission to help maintain a healthy and vibrant democracy.”

“Colonial Williamsburg has provided generations of Americans with outstanding educational insights into the founding of our country,” said Tom McCombs, area manager for Enterprise Holdings. “We are proud to offer support from the Enterprise Holdings Foundation to such an outstanding organization.”
