Charitable giving is something we're very passionate about at Ellie Air. As a business we are committed to giving back and have a track record of consistently donating to multiple charities over recent years.
Our 2%+ Mission
This year we are committed to donating a combined total of over 2% of our revenue.
1% for the Planet
We partner with and donate 1% of our annual revenue to 1% For The Planet. 1% For the Planet gives to environmental causes to protect the environment. Founded in 2002, by Yvon Chouinard, founder of Patagonia, and Craig Mathews, founder of Blue Ribbon Flies, 1% for the Planet's idea is simple: because companies profit from the resources they take from the earth, they should protect those resources.
We partner with and donate 0.5% of our annual revenue to Gem Legacy. Gem Legacy support vocational training, entrepreneurship and community development in East African artisanal gem mining communities.
Ellie Air Annual Charity Partners
In addition we donate at least 0.5% of our revenue per year to a variety of different charity partners chosen by our founder Lauren. This dynamic approach allows us to partner with local causes we are passionate about and those around the world who may need donations urgently. Just like our 1% For the Planet and Gem Legacy giving these donations are made monthly.
This year we are donating to the Word Forest Organisation, a Dorset Jurassic Coast charity who work with communities in Kenya to replant trees.
