Raising funds and awareness through high profile innovative events

By: Cheryl Babajee

Founded in 2002, Elephant Family is the leading UK conservation charity dedicated to saving the Asian elephant from extinction in the wild. This case study describes how Elephant Family uses engaging events to raise funds and awareness at the same time.  Elephant Parade (2010), Jungle City (2011), The Big Egg Hunt London (2012) and The Big Egg Hunt NY (2014) are examples of large scale public art exhibitions that push creative and fundraising boundaries.

  • 500+ pieces of media coverage
