Hertz is a global company, operating 8,500 locations in 146 countries, but we rely on local talent and communities for the success of our business. This is an obligation we take seriously and we focus our efforts on being a positive corporate community partner everywhere we operate.
Our goal is to enhance communities we serve by giving back through our volunteer and philanthropic programs.
At Hertz, giving back to the communities where we work and live is important. Providing financial and service contributions are small ways we hope to provide a lasting and meaningful contribution to our stakeholders. We are proud sponsors of the United Way©, American Red Cross©, Make-a-Wish Foundation©, National Multiple Sclerosis Society®, Habitat for Humanity© and numerous local organizations.
Over the past 16 years, Hertz has proudly partnered with United Way to help advance the impact of their work. Through volunteerism and donations of over $9.9 million since 1996, Hertz and United Way© are working together to provide concrete solutions to critical community problems—with tangible results to improve the lives of our neighbors in need.
Since 1997, Hertz has been working with the Corporate Angel Network (CAN), which arranges free flights to treatment for cancer patients using empty seats on corporate jets. Over the past 31 years, CAN has grown to include Hertz as well as more than 500 other participating corporations. To date, CAN has arranged nearly 40,000 flights to take cancer patients to critical and often life-saving treatments and currently provides between 250 and 300 patient flights each month—more than 3,000 a year. CAN has received numerous awards in recognition of its service to cancer patients, including the Volunteer Action Award, the highest volunteer award from the President of the United States.
Hertz operates in neighborhoods and at airports, businesses and universities around the world. We believe accessibility to reliable transportation is vital for a thriving society. As a provider of rental and car sharing programs, we are in a unique position to help deliver mobility solutions to local residents and travelers around the world. We continuously look for opportunities to enhance communities, regardless of their location or population, through our transport services, such as virtual customer-service kiosks and on-demand rentals.
Hertz employees have a long-standing tradition of supporting local community organizations through their volunteer efforts.
Hertz in the Neighborhood and Hertz Headquarter Heroes are employee-driven programs that give back to the community through fundraising and volunteer efforts to support non-profit and philanthropic organizations.
Natural Disaster Relief
From tornadoes to floods, nature can be unpredictable and powerful. We help provide quick response and equipment to aid local recovery efforts after natural disasters. As a global provider of large equipment and car rental services, we are well positioned to provide immediate response to natural disaster recovery efforts.
Hurricane Sandy disaster relief assistance in 2012 is just one example of how Hertz used its business assets and network to help communities. Hertz was able to quickly respond to cleanup efforts by providing donated materials, no-cost rentals and financial contributions to the American Red Cross and local food banks which provided over 500,000 free meals.
