EY Cayman Ltd. has donated $10,000 to the National Council of Voluntary Organisations, one of the Cayman Islands’ longest-standing charities. NCVO was established in 1974 and is dedicated to the care, education and well-being of children and families in need.
EY’s donation will support NCVO’s mission of helping children who have been victims of abuse or neglect access educational and growth opportunities otherwise not available to them.
“Abuse and neglect is not something that confronts many of us in our everyday lives. However, just as elsewhere in the world, it is a very real part of Cayman society,” said Lauren Nelson, EY area director of finance and operations. “Each time I meet with representatives from the NCVO, I am humbled by the work they do to combat this issue. We are very proud to do our part to help further their efforts with this donation.”
Dan Scott, EY managing partner for the region, commented, “Lauren has been very active, directly and indirectly, with NCVO since 2005, and we’ve seen the valuable work that the organization does in helping improve children’s lives. This donation, and the time that our volunteers have dedicated to NCVO, will help them provide these critical services to some of our most vulnerable citizens.”
