The dedication recognised the long-standing relationship with the Wortley Home for Girls and CBFF, going back three generations of the Facey family. The Foundation contributed to refurbishing the dining hall, as well as outfitting the kitchen with industrial appliances.
The C. B. Facey Foundation (CBFF) will close its grant application process on Friday, October 12, 2018.

For the past three months, the Foundation has opened the grant application portal on its website, www.cbfaceyfoundation.org, and opened a call for applications.

CBFF, the charitable arm of the PanJam Investment Limited, for over 30 years has helped to shape the society by investing in arts and education through relationships with the National Gallery of Jamaica, the Boy’s Town Infant and Primary School, University of Technology Jamaica, and Edna Manley College for the Visual and Performing Arts.

Charities, projects, and schools still have a few days to apply for up to JMD $1 million in grants.

“We are encouraging our new and returning partners and beneficiaries to continue utilising the platforms to apply for the grants,” said Anna Ward, executive director of the C. B. Facey Foundation. “It is a great opportunity to implement or further develop sustainable community based projects that will have a meaningful impact for the areas of arts, education and the environment.”

Last year, CBFF engaged close to 30 new and returning grant partners.

They others included: DebateMate Jamaica; Philharmonic Orchestra of Jamaica; Jamaica Junior Theatre; Missionaries of the Poor; Salvation Army; Friends of Mona Rehab; Rise Life Management Services; Violence Prevention Alliance; Peace Management Initivative; Wortley Home for Girls; Jamaicans for Justice; Jamaica Association for the Deaf; St. Andrew Parish Church; Global Shapers Kingston Hub; Scout Association; Girls Brigade; Jamaica Environment Trust; Downtown Kingston Music Theatre; Sigma Corporate Run; as well as hurricane and climate relief efforts across the Caribbean.
