Marco’s Pizza founder Pasquale “Pat” Giammarco was born in Italy and came to America as a young boy with a dream of creating the kind of fresh, artisan pizza he enjoyed in his childhood. That meant honoring his Italian heritage by creating every pizza with the freshest quality ingredients, and making the dough fresh in-store every day. That was 1978, today Marco’s Pizza is cited as the fastest growing Pizza Franchise in the US and for good reason. While other national chains deeply discount and compete over price point, Marco’s competes on quality and authenticity. With Marco’s you can taste the difference, but you can also see the difference in us giving back to our community in authentic ways. We believe education our youth is paramount. It’s one of the best investments we’re proud to make, no matter how you slice it.

The Cable Bahamas Cares Foundation (CBCF) is a non-profit charitable funding organization, specifically focused on the funding of youth oriented individual and organizational educational programmes, including educational research and publications.

What Cable Bahamas sought to do was to give back to the community in a way that was productive, developmental and accessible to Bahamian youth, yet lasting in its effect on the community.
The foundation derives its base funding through an agreement with Cable Bahamas Ltd. which donates 1% of its net income to the foundation annually. Nevertheless, the Cable Bahamas Cares foundation operates as a totally independent funding body.
Since its inception the Cable Bahamas Cares Foundation has disbursed $265,511.88 (YTD December 31, 2013) through the awarding of 425 grants to local community organizations, as well as individual students.
