elephant communications makes footprint with community investment pledge

Press release   •   Sep 07, 2012 17:22 BST

As part of its community investment programme, elephant communications will be giving a percentage of its first half-year profits to two organisations it supports.

The first donation is to support the Philharmonia Orchestra's outreach programme, bringing top quality music to new audiences through its groundbreaking digital installations and its concert programme across the UK.

elephant communications is also supporting Elephant Parade's mission to raise global awareness of the plight of the Asian elephant. In addition to making a donation to the Asian Elephant Foundation, elephant communications is also commissioning a series of miniature hand painted elephants to give to clients and friends later this year - a design inspired by the true story of Mosha the baby elephant who has become a symbol for raising awareness of issues surrounding the Asian elephant.

Since launching the business, founders Bellamy and Marino have shared a strong sense on running a meaningful community investment programme, which also includes free advice days for small businesses and creativity awards with schools.  Bellamy comments: "The very basis of our consultancy offer is based on authenticity, moving away from the connotations PR has sometimes had with spin. Our services are designed to help clients communicate in an authentic fashion and our community investment programme is an attempt to also make a real and meaningful impact within the community. We have picked four prongs to our programme so we can make an active contribution in a number of important areas - conservation, the arts, enterprise and education."

Jonathan Kuhles of the Philharmonia Orchestra added: “We are very proud of our partnership with elephant communications and we are thrilled that they have chosen the Philharmonia Orchestra to make their first donation.  The support that we receive from our business friends is crucial in enabling us to continue to perform world-class music to the widest possible audience in the UK and internationally.  Our new season at Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall opens on 27 September with Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony and we look forward to welcoming our friends at elephant communications and all our business partners to this special concert.”
