The Royal Gazette launches advertising donations campaign
The Royal Gazette is seeking charities and non-profit organisations that could benefit from some advertising help, as the newspaper launches its Annual Advertising Donations 2014 campaign.
Last year, the campaign donated more than $100,000 worth of advertising to organisations whose efforts benefit our community.
In conjunction with its parent company, Bermuda Press (Holdings) Ltd, this newspaper is again inviting applications for advertising donations.
“The Bermuda Press (Holdings) Ltd and The Royal Gazette are excited that we can give back to the community,” Bermuda Press (Holdings) Ltd CEO Jonathan Howes said.
“Many charities in Bermuda have faced financial challenges as a result of the challenges in the local economy. It is our role as good corporate citizens to support local charities and not-for-profit organisations in their efforts to help the community.
“Given the nature of our businesses, charities that support literacy and provide education are a natural fit for us. For example, our long-standing programme called News in Education (NIE) that encourages student writing and literacy, and their work is highlighted in the Young Observer section of our newspaper.
“Last year we received more than 60 requests for donations and were able to offer support to 48 organisations. I am expecting an increase in the number of requests for donations in 2014 and we will do our best to help as many organisations as possible.”
Those who wish to apply should submit a maximum two-page document detailing how the advertising would be utilised, detailing how it would help in achieving the organisation's goals, and the intended advertising dates or time frame.
All requests should be submitted for the attention of the Donations Committee, either by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail to The Royal Gazette Ltd, PO Box HM1025, Hamilton HM DX.
