Elephant strives to be involved!
Whether it’s promoting safe driving habits for our teenagers or supporting youth sports, Elephant is engaged and active in the communities we serve and looking for more ways to contribute in the future. Here are a few things we’ve been involved with recently:
Elephant Insurance is proud of its Helping Herd initiative. Elephant will donate $300,000 to organizations and programs that have been adversely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic or who are providing COVID relief to their community. The program will launch in June 2021 with gifts distributed between August and December 2021. See the first round of recipients here.
Through the Helping Herd, Elephant’s hope is to reach at least 50 organizations or programs with the funds, with gifts ranging in size from $2,000 to $20,000. These organizations should serve communities in the states in which Elephant operates (GA, IN, IL, MD, OH, TN, TX and VA) in one of three areas: mental health, physical health or community health.
Elephant team members will be involved in the selection process, by nominating deserving groups or participating in the voting process to finalize the recipients.
Project Yellow Light
Community is one of the most important influences in the lives of our children. And we are always looking for ways to contribute to those communities, especially if we can help keep the roads and our kids safe. We proudly support Project Yellow Light: a scholarship competition that gets teens talking to other teens about the dangers of distracted driving. They create short films, radio spots and billboards to share points-of-view on the issue, and the winners receive college scholarships in memory of teen drivers who have lost their lives. Please find out more (and even participate!) by visiting Project Yellow Light.
Elephant is a proud supporter of the LeagueSide mission to make youth sports more accessible. Research shows, kids who play sports perform better in school, live healthier lives, and grow up to be more successful adults. The rising cost of youth sports is a serious problem that leaves many of kids on the sidelines. Elephant’s partnership with LeagueSide allows us to support youth sports leagues in the community.
Richmond Flying Squirrels
When it comes to our hometown of Richmond, we proudly and loudly support our one and only MiLB team, the Richmond Flying Squirrels! Whether its showing up to games to engage with fans over cornhole, running a employee contest to win the honor of the throwing the opening game pitch, or hosting employee events at the Diamond, home of the Flying Squirrels, we are true fans of the Squirrels!
Like our support of the Flying Squirrels, we are also get behind Richmond’s professional soccer club in the Richmond Kickers with a sponsorship for which we are proud! You can find many Elephant employees in the seats at City Stadium cheering on the Red Tide at home games along with Kickeroo, the Kicker’s macropodial mascot.
