New York, June 26, 2024 – For the third consecutive year, ei3 is partnering with Jaguar Land Rover to sponsor the prestigious Defender Service Awards. This program recognizes outstanding organizations across the United States, Puerto Rico, and Canada, awarding them with a customized Defender 130 vehicle and significant monetary prizes to amplify their impactful work.

Empowering local heroes

ei3 is proudly sponsoring the “Community Service” category, offering a $25,000 USD prize to the winner. This category celebrates organizations making significant and sustainable positive contributions to their communities.

Spencer Cramer, Founder and CEO of ei3, emphasized the program’s importance: “We’ve witnessed firsthand the transformative impact of this award. Past winners like Kairos Adventures and Mercy Chefs have shown extraordinary commitment to community service. We’re eager to continue fostering positive change by supporting another remarkable organization this year.”

Proven impact

Heather Subbert from Kairos Adventures shared, “Winning the Defender and the $25,000 in support has been a blessing. It rallied our community around our mission and brought new awareness. Our participants take pride in rolling up to projects in our customized Defender.”
  • Mercy Chefs, winners of the 2022 award, have expanded their disaster relief efforts by using their Defender to deliver crucial supplies in crisis areas, including during Hurricane Idalia.
