For over 30 years RE/MAX Cayman Islands has been dedicated to giving back to the community. Every single agent in our office contributes to our charity fund which supports the sponsorship of annual events such as Stride for Cancer, the Breast Cancer Foundation’s Light up the Night and the Flowers Sea Swim, among many others.

This year the charity fund raised additional revenue which enabled RE/MAX Cayman Islands to make two substantial donations at the end of 2023.

Jubilate

RE/MAX Cayman Islands donated $5,000 to Jubilate to fund their annual budget for education enrichment supplies.

Jubilate launched in January 2016 as a social outreach after­school programme with an emphasis on music; specifically, building an orchestra. Following a time of high gang violence in the community, Jubilate was born out of a desire to offer those children in our community with the fewest resources and greatest need an outlet to develop their talents, confidence, strong values, and a true belief that they can achieve great things in their life.

Jubilate is offered daily, from 3:00pm – 6:00pm, throughout the 10-month school year, to students aged 8+ from the 8 public schools that are east of George Town in Grand Cayman. The programme takes place at the First Baptist Church opposite Lion’s Centre, with students transported directly from school. As of the 2022/23 school year, their capacity is 85 (60 primary school students and 25 high school students). Primary school students attend 3 days per week while high school students attend 1 day per week.

Alex Panton Foundation

RE/MAX Cayman Islands donated $5,000 to the Alex Panton Foundation to sponsor their Community Mental Health Presentation Series starting Q1 2024.

The Alex Panton Foundation is a Non-Profit Organisation with the primary objective of raising awareness of mental illnesses affecting children and young adults in the Cayman Islands with a particular focus on anxiety and depression.

This Foundation has been established in memory of Alex Panton, who succumbed to the effects of severe depression at the age of 16.

The Alex Panton Foundation aims to provide hope and resources to friends, family, teachers, classmates, and carers to help save the lives of children and young adults struggling with mental illness.

The Community Mental Health Presentation Series offers “by request” presentations or workshops for the general public which covers topics such as stress management, self-harm, and suicide prevention, bullying, nutrition, and anxiety.
