Few realize the huge impact Dart Enterprises has had on communities. With branches focusing on everything ranging from philanthropic endeavors to a number of organizations based on Grand Cayman, Dart Enterprises has set a new standard for making a difference in local communities.
Ken Dart, owner of Dart Enterprises (http://deccolimited.com/dartenterprises/) and recognized philanthropist, also serves on the board of the Dart Foundation, which was named Socially Responsible Organization of the Year in 2013. The recognition was mainly in response to Dart’s $14.4 million commitment to communities in mid-Michigan, but the Dart Foundation has proved itself socially responsible in a global context.
From funding the infrastructure of The Cayman International School to providing high school and university scholarships to eligible students in Grand Cayman and abroad, Ken Dart has proven his commitment to education beyond Midwestern America. Since the Dart Foundation’s inception in 1984, William and Claire Dart prioritized supporting educational programs, and Ken has followed in their footsteps.
Recipients of the Minds Inspired William A. Dart Memorial University scholarship currently pursue bachelor degrees in prestigious universities like Kings College in London and Stanford University. The Foundation offers scholarships in all fields of study as well as mentorship and employment opportunities.
