The Inter Agency Committee has rebranded to better reflect its efforts to strengthen, unify and champion Bermuda’s non-profit sector.

The organisation serving children, families and the community will now be called the Non-profit Alliance of Bermuda.

A launch event hosted at Chubb Bermuda was attended by more than 100 non-profit leaders, philanthropists and community change-makers, including Tinée Furbert, the Minster of Social Development and Seniors.

Guests were presented with the organisation’s new Strategic Plan and its Annual Impact Report.

Nicola Paugh, Non-profit Alliance of Bermuda executive director, said: “Through our consultative process, we found that the IAC name caused brand confusion and mission-name misalignment.”

Dr Paugh added: “Donors, staff, board members and clients mutually agreed that our name is a barrier to understanding the full scope of our work.

“We believe this new name better captures our expanded focus and new mission, while honouring our grass roots origins.”

The new mission of the organisation is to strengthen and unify non-profit to meet the needs of Bermuda’s communities. Its vision is for a “just, equitable and thriving” Bermuda.

Sandy De Silva, the organisation’s chairwoman, added. “As we continue to create a better Bermuda, our work will be guided by our new values, defined collectively by our staff and board, of purpose, respect, optimism, partnership, excellence and learning organisation.

“We are proud of our accomplishments this past year and know that with our new four-year strategic priorities we will propel the non-profit sector forward.”

Allison Towlson, managing director of the Centennial Bermuda Foundation, said: "The Non-profit Alliance of Bermuda serves a vital role in our philanthropic community as the backbone organisation raising the bar on the standard of our collective work.

“As donors we must recognise the importance of funding the capacity and capabilities of our non-profit partners.

“The Non-profit Alliance of Bermuda is at the forefront of providing valuable resources and tools to enable our non-profit organisations to continue to meet the rising needs in our community."

The 2022-23 Annual Impact Report highlights the Non-profit Alliance’s growth in revenue, services and people, including a 30 per cent increase in donors and donations, 29 per cent increase in non-profit served, and the hiring of two Strategy and Capacity Building consultants.
