The 2018 Bermuda End-to-End is calling on local charities to put in their requests for support this month for next year’s big event.

The 31st annual End-to-End, sponsored by XL Catlin, is scheduled for May 5, and once again its funding focus will be trained on the needs of local families.

Proceeds go to nonsectarian Bermuda charitable projects and programmes, as well as operating expenses, that will help support and strengthen Bermuda families.

Anne Mello, chairwoman of the event, said applications were sought to address needs in the following three categories:

• Seniors: basic needs such as food, shelter, clothing and health, and support services;

• Youth: enrichment opportunities to help overcome negative social issues;

• Families: support services for physical and emotional trauma and health

The charity’s committee is looking for submissions that clearly define the chosen issue, and describe the solution to be implemented if the application is successful.

Submissions must also indicate what outcomes or impacts the project or programme will have on the community, and how these results will be measured.

Proceeds will be distributed between four to five charities, and submission budgets should be based upon a $50,000 allocation.

Funding will be distributed in June 2018, with an End-to-End progress report required by December 31, 2018.

Charities wishing to be considered must download and complete the official application from the End-to-End’s website: www.bermudaendtoend.bm/charities-2018-funding/

Applications must be returned to the End-to-End charity by 5pm on October 27, 2017.

You must be registered or signed-in to post comment or to vote.
