CIREBA has launched a donations program "Home is Where the Heart is" to provide funding to support those most in need within the Cayman Community. With the ongoing COVID-19 crisis affecting the Cayman community CIREBA has taken active part in assisting through monthly donations.
CIREBA is committed to donating CI$10,000 a month for the next 8 months to various charities and service organisations in the Cayman Islands. The initiative started in May with a CI$10,000 donation to Meals on Wheels. Cayman Islands Meals on Wheels (MOW) provides free meals to seniors that are homebound and/or disabled throughout the Cayman Islands.
Each month the CIREBA members, which include over 240+ real estate agents and 35 brokerages, will have the chance to vote for a charity or service organisation of their choice through an anonymous survey. The charity with the most votes for that month will receive the CI$10,000 donation.
“CIREBA is supported directly by fees paid from our members and brokers, so we’re thrilled that the membership recognises that supporting our community is critical in times like these. Not just in the short term, but over the remainder of the year as the community begins to get back on their feet and thrive again.” Tracy Moore, Treasurer at CIREBA.
The next CI$10,000 donation will be announced at the end of the month.
Once a charity or service organisation has been chosen they will not be ineligible for 3 months after receiving the popular vote. This guideline was implemented in order to assure CIREBA reaches as many organisations as possible during the 8 months the campaign runs.
“There are many members of our community who so desperately need support, and CIREBA is proud to be in a position to help” James Bovell, Board Member at CIREBA.
