Thank you for your interest in fundraising for the Central Caribbean Marine Institute (CCMI). The money you raise supports CCMI’s important work to protect and restore coral reefs in the Cayman Islands – and throughout the Caribbean region.


You can support CCMI by setting up a unique fundraiser:

  • in honour of a special milestone such as a graduation
  • to celebrate a birthday or anniversary
  • to make a fitness challenge such as running a marathon more meaningful
  • to pay tribute to someone special
  • for any reason you choose!

Our team has created a helpful tool kit to get you started with your fundraising efforts. This packet contains information about:

  • CCMI
  • How to set up a fundraising page
  • Fun coral reef facts
  • Media kit
  • Fundraising tips
  • Much more!

Once you are ready, you can set up your online fundraising site quickly and easily through our online platform, Classy.
