Appleby held its fifth annual Charity Day and selected nine nonprofit organizations in child and family welfare, education and animal welfare to receive financial assistance.

The organizations are the Brain Tumor Foundation, Cayman’s ARK, Cayman Heart Fund, Cayman HospiceCare, Central Caribbean Marine Institute (CCMI), Corporate Cup – Feed Our Future, John Gray Flight Club, Lighthouse School and 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 nonprofits 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 organization had to demonstrate a genuine need for financial assistance, fall within one of the above three categories and identify how the funds will be used.

The Charity Day takes place every March, and all nonprofits fitting the specified parameters are encouraged to apply.
