For the fifth year running, Appleby held its annual Charity Day and this year selected nine non-profit organisations that fall within the child and family welfare, education and animal welfare categories to receive financial assistance to deliver a number of community initiatives. These are:
- Brain Tumour Foundation
- Cayman’s ARK
- Cayman Heart Fund
- Cayman Hospice Care
- Central Caribbean Marine Institute (CCMI)
- Corporate Cup – Feed Our Future
- John Gray Flight Club
- Lighthouse School
- One Dog at a Time
Bryan Hunter, Cayman Managing Partner, said, “Appleby is proud to continually support our local community and offer sponsorships to new and existing non-profits for the excellent work they do on the ground. This year was particularly noteworthy as we received the most applications to date, highlighting the growing importance of our Charity Day.”
Each organisation had to demonstrate a genuine need for financial assistance, fall within one of the above three categories and clearly identify how the funds will be used. In past years, the firm has supported Cayman Hospice Care, John Gray Flight Club and Lighthouse School and this year is no different. For the first time, the Brain Tumour Foundation, Cayman’s ARK, Cayman Heart Fund, CCMI, Feed Our Future and One Dog at a Time have received assistance from Appleby.
The Charity Day takes place every March and all non-profits within the specified parameters are encouraged to apply. Details for 2019 will be updated once a date is confirmed. Further information can be found on the Appleby website.
