Bermuda Community Foundation backers seeking volunteers
A foundation could be set up to combine the efforts of individual philanthropy efforts on the Island.
Bermuda Community Foundation would be a vehicle for collective giving, operated for public benefit, supported by unrelated donors, according to an advertisement placed in The Royal Gazette.
Volunteers are being sought to sit on a taskforce to explore the potential for such an organisation, which would be independent and apolitical, thereby excluding former and current MPs.
Anyone wanting to serve on the taskforce should submit a letter of interest outlining their background, interests and experience.
Successful candidates will be broadly representative of the community, with a background in business planning, asset management, the structuring of trusts and corporate entities, giving policies, marketing, communications or community involvement.
Taking part will require attendance at monthly meetings and commensurate preparation time.
Send expressions of interest to project coordinator Lorna McGowan at info[AT]bdacommunityfoundation.org, or to the Bermuda Community Foundation, c/o the Centre on Philanthropy, PO Box HM 3217, Hamilton, HM NX, by November 3. Telephone 236-7706.
