Deloitte holds first IMPACT Week

In celebration of its 15th annual volunteer day, “IMPACT Day,” Deloitte held its first IMPACT Week in the Cayman Islands.

Each day from Oct. 15-19, the firm’s staff and management participated in various initiatives including fundraisers, a blood drive, a clothing drive and a traditional volunteer day to benefit local nonprofits.

“At Deloitte, we are committed to making a positive impact in the Cayman community, and for our local charities,” said Stuart Sybersma, managing partner. “This purpose is embedded in our culture, our people, our work and everything we do. We are continuously working to find new ways to support, get further involved, and help protect and develop our society, environment and heritage.

“IMPACT Week was a great team effort and success, and another step towards our goal of making a greater impact in the Cayman Islands.”

The projects and beneficiaries for the firm’s IMPACT Day and IMPACT Week this year included the National Trust’s Blue Iguana Recovery Program and Mission House, the Cayman Islands Blood Bank, the Cayman Islands Crisis Centre, the Humane Society, Hedge Funds Care, John A. Cumber Primary School, and the preservation of Cayman’s reef and marine ecosystems with lionfish culling.

Earlier this year, Deloitte’s global societal commitment was recognized by Fortune, who named Deloitte to its prestigious 2018 “Change the World” list, a yearly ranking of top businesses that “do well by doing good.”
