A range of charities have benefited from $200,000 in donations from reinsurance company Conduit Re.

The much needed financial boost went out to 12 non-profit organisations over 2022 as part of the company’s charitable arm Conduit Foundation, which is dedicated to strengthening the Bermuda community.

The foundation supports local causes with a focus on the environment, diversity and inclusion, education, and Bermuda’s vulnerable populations.

Stuart Quinlan, Conduit Re’s chief executive, said: “We established the foundation specifically to assist and give back to the community we are active in.

“Our aim is to be able to support a variety of local charities not only through monetary donations, but also through forming lasting relationships with our staff and the charities and those they support.”

Stacy Hill, funding and development officer at autism charity Tomorrow’s Voices, thanked Conduit Re saying: “The donation will assist in accomplishing our goal to provide hands on one-on-one therapy to children affected by autism spectrum disorders and other developmental disabilities.

“For every $10 that is donated, we can provide 30 minutes of therapy to our clients. Thank you for supporting our mission.”

Patrina O’Connor Paynter, managing director of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Bermuda, said: “These funds go directly towards expanding our Boys 2 Men and Girl Power programmes which help to strengthen and empower our youth helping them to reach their full potential. On behalf of the children we serve, thank you so much.”
