Progressive Surpasses 1,000 Vehicles Donated to Military Families with 11th Annual Keys to Progress Program

Progressive Insurance® announced its 11th annual Keys to Progress® vehicle giveaway will take place on November 8, 2023. Ahead of Veterans Day, 82 veterans, military-related organizations, and veteran-owned small business owners across the country will receive the keys to vehicles that will provide reliable transportation, helping them get back on the road and move forward in life.

Progressive worked with Enterprise Rent-A-Car to locate certified vehicles from Enterprise’s U.S. fleet of high-quality, used cars, vans and SUVs that could be purchased and given away with funds provided by Progressive. The vehicles, with six months insurance paid for by Enterprise, will be delivered to veterans, bringing the total number of donated vehicles through the Keys to Progress program to more than 1,000 since 2013.

“As we enter our 11th year of the Keys to Progress program, it is exciting to celebrate another significant milestone, having now provided over 1,000 vehicles and impacting the lives of so many veterans and their families,” said Tricia Griffith, CEO at Progressive. “At its core, the Keys to Progress vehicle giveaway program is just one way we celebrate our nation’s veterans, and these events are a strong source of pride for everyone who works at Progressive.”

Progressive’s Keys to Progress giveaway program is a reality thanks to the assistance of the following organizations:

  • Enterprise Rent-A-Car locates certified vehicles from their U.S. fleet of high-quality, used cars, vans, and SUVs for purchase to be given away with funds from Progressive. Enterprise also funds the first six months of insurance for the vehicles. Policies are written by Progressive.
  • Veracity Research Co. Investigations, a veteran-owned and operated organization, helps support the recipient selection process each year.
  • Insurance Auto Auctions Inc. provides a 12-month powertrain protection plan for the vehicles.
  • The Original 1-800-Charity Cars, provides resources to facilitate the vehicle donations, as well as titling and registration of some vehicles for recipients.
  • Local charities, which help to identify veteran recipients in each region.

“Throughout the years, the Keys to Progress program has provided reliable transportation to veterans and veteran organizations. Our hope is to offer a little relief and improve the lives of military men and women facing tough personal circumstances,” said John Murphy, Progressive Claims President. “We’re grateful to be able to help those who have given so much for our country and look forward to continuing the program for years to come.”

Interested in applying to be a future recipient? Veterans need to be sponsored by a veteran-friendly, non-profit organization to submit their request. Applications are reviewed starting in May of each program year. For more information on the Keys to Progress veteran vehicle giveaway program, visit or search #KeysToProgress on social media.
