At Global Captive Management Ltd. (GCM), we understand the importance of giving back to the community. In fact, giving our time, talents, and treasures is something each one of our team members is committed to.
GCM has been a proud supporter of Jasmine for several years, and in 2020, we became a corporate member. Jasmine is Cayman’s only hospice and palliative care provider, offering free services to people with life-limiting illnesses. For two consecutive years, we have actively participated in Jasmine’s Annual Flag Day, which is the biggest annual public awareness campaign for Jasmine. In February 2022, our office had a mentoring teams’ fundraising competition and the winning team with the highest funds raised got the chance to donate an additional $100 to Jasmine. Also, every year GCM sponsors Jasmine’s Giant Community Christmas Card.
To keep us informed with the different charities and initiatives in the community, we invited Denise Powers of Project FurtHER, an organization that works to empower women in our community and create safer, healthier communities. Their bold projects provide resources and raise awareness around the importance of empowering women.
The Cayman Islands Crisis Centre spoke to our team and we provided a generous donation to support their mission in aiding all victims of domestic violence through various services and programs focusing on domestic and sexual abuse.
On September 9, 2022, we had our annual Community Day, an opportunity to give back to the Cayman community. We donated our time and effort to help not only one non-profit organization but two, the Cayman Islands Crisis Centre and Cayman Islands Meals on Wheels.
The Cayman Islands Crisis Centre has a warehouse for donated items and every 4 to 6 weeks, they open this warehouse to their clients to take items they need for free. We donated additional items and helped organized the warehouse, all while battling the Cayman heat to ensure the warehouse would be well organized for the open day later that week.
GCM also partnered with Cayman Islands Meals on Wheels to deliver hot meals to seniors within George Town and Prospect. Meals on Wheels provides lunch to 155 seniors every day. We had the chance to meet and greet some of the seniors on island while delivering hot food and our warm smiles.
We strive to be involved in the Cayman Community all throughout the year.
GCM is a long-standing member of the Insurance Manager’s Association of Cayman (IMAC) and annually supports their Gala & Scholarship Fundraiser. We also are an active participant in the IMAC Golf Scramble, where all proceeds go to the IMAC’s Educational Scholarship Fund.
Since 1994, IMAC’s Educational Scholarship Fund has been committed to supporting the educational development of the next generation. To date, over $4.9 million has been raised and IMAC has supported 62 young Caymanians pursuing education around the globe.
Another way we support our community is through the Deputy Governor’s 5K Challenge 2022 with a focus on the Helping Today-Protecting Tomorrow initiative through sponsorship. This event supports many non-profit organizations in the Cayman Islands.
One fun way we get involved in our community is through our own touch rugby team. We love participating in the Touch Rugby Corporate League and supporting the Cayman Islands Rugby Club. This year, GCM’s dynamic team lifted the B Division Trophy – the Vase Cup. Kudos, GCM Touch Rugby Team!
