Enterprise founder gives $25 million to university

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- The founder of the parent company of Enterprise Rent-A-Car is donating $25 million to Washington University.

The university said Friday that the donation from Jack Taylor, founder of Enterprise Holdings, will fund undergraduate scholarships. The Taylor family also donated $25 million to the university for scholarships and financial aid in 2001.

Taylor's family gave $40 million in 2000 to the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra and $30 million in 2002 to the Missouri Botanical Garden.
