Florida SouthWestern State (FSW) Foundation received a $5,000 grant from Enterprise Holdings Foundation. The grant is directed for scholarships for the college’s student veterans. This is the second year that Enterprise has donated to FSW for this purpose.
From day one, members of the military have played an important role in the history and culture of Enterprise. After all, founder Jack Taylor was a decorated fighter pilot in WWII. He started his business with a big dream and the military values that would become the foundation of Enterprise—both then and now. The Taylor family has continued to honor the leadership and vision that Jack instilled over half a century ago by playing a very active role in offering veterans and their families the support and training they need to be successful.
“FSW serves over 500 student veterans, and any additional help we can provide to them for their educational and career goals is extremely appreciated,” said Susan DeSantis, Executive Director, FSW Foundation. “Enterprise Holdings Foundation is a wonderful example of corporate generosity in the community.”
“We have a special affinity for our military veterans. It’s important to help them once they return so they can continue their education,” said Kayla Siwiec, Talent Acquisition Specialist, Enterprise Holdings. “They have served our country and this is one way we show our appreciation for that.”
