At Global Captive Management Ltd. (GCM), we understand the importance of giving back to the community. In fact, giving of our time, talents, and treasures is something each and every one of our team members is committed to.
We have been proud supporters of Jasmine for several years, and in 2020, we were able to take the opportunity to become a corporate member. Jasmine is a not-for-profit organisation, dedicated to providing dignified medical, emotional, and compassionate care, free of charge, to anyone in the Cayman Islands with life-limiting or end-of-life illnesses. One of Jasmine’s biggest fundraising events is their annual flag day when over 250 volunteers island-wide shake a can to raise much-needed funds. GCM was able to participate in 2021 by dressing in the Jasmine colours, blue and yellow, and collecting donations.
Another local charity that is close to GCM’s heart is the NCVO Children Services. We were fortunate enough to have the NCVO provide a presentation to our office on the services they provide in the Cayman Islands. The NCVO is dedicated to the care, education, and wellbeing of children and families in need of support in the Cayman Islands. In September 2021, GCM employees took part in a community day, by painting the living room at the NCVO Foster Home. We also participated in the NCVO Coin Drive as our Christmas Charity Drive for 2021 and in celebration of World Children’s Day in November. We were able to donate cash and time for this initiative for the children supported by NCVO.
Three other charities visited our office and provided presentations in 2021:
- We made a philanthropic donation to Cayman Islands Meals on Wheels in support of their mission to end senior hunger in the Cayman Islands.
- We supported the #PaintCaymanRed initiative of the Cayman Islands Red Cross by having a Wear Red for Red Day and made a donation for the benefit of their initiatives.
- We volunteered in the CASA program of Cayman’s Acts of Random Kindness by providing a generous donation to transform a house into a home for a special family.
GCM is also a long-standing member of the Insurance Manager’s Association of Cayman (IMAC) and annually supports their Black Tie Gala & Scholarship Fundraiser. Since 1994, IMAC’s Scholarship Fund has been committed to supporting the educational development of the next generation. Dedicated to providing young people with the opportunity to study abroad: to gain knowledge, experience, confidence, and fresh perspective and to use this experience to build their careers and enrich their lives and communities.
To date, over $4.7 million has been raised and IMAC has supported 58 young Caymanians pursuing further studies around the globe.
GCM also takes part in other community events including having our own touch rugby team. We are not as young or fast as we used to be (we last won the league in 2014), but we love taking part and supporting the local rugby club.
