Avis Budget Charitable Foundation Achieves Milestone

PARSIPPANY, N.J., July 1, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Avis Budget Group, Inc.

"We believe that it's important for our Company and our employees to be active in our communities, to help improve the lives of our own people as well as our customers and neighbors," said Ronald L. Nelson, chairman and chief executive officer, Avis Budget Group. "The Foundation is one avenue through which Avis Budget Group can give back to our communities, and we are proud that the Foundation has supported so many outstanding organizations."

The Foundation supports a wide range of organizations, including healthcare research, veterans' advocacy groups, children's welfare and the creative and performing arts. In 2012, organizations receiving support from the Avis Budget Charitable Foundation included the American Cancer Society, the March of Dimes and the American Heart Association; Covenant House, the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and Preschool Advantage, Inc.; Back On My Feet, New Jersey Heroes and the Wounded Warrior Project; the Community Food Bank of East Oklahoma, the Morristown, N.J.
