Centennial moves grant management online

First Prev 1 2 Next Last

The private philanthropic organisation Centennial Bermuda Foundation is moving to a new grant management system — an online platform for applications and for reporting on grants.

Training videos on how to use the new system are online this month.

And Centennial will invest in five key areas of need in 2022: community health, cultural and community connections, economic participation, fundamental needs and public education.

More than 50 external and internal stakeholders were involved in determining and defining the focus areas, aligned priorities and desired project outcomes.

It included a multilayered approach where Centennial gathered community data, facilitated community-led meetings and applied research from subject matter experts and evidence-based models.

Organisations interested in applying for a Centennial grant are invited to register for webinars to learn more about the process.

Managing director Allison Towlson said: “Centennial’s grant-making approach has been developed over time in consultation with community stakeholders and subject matter experts in response to the changing philanthropic climate.

“Centennial, as a philanthropic organisation, is focused on community investing; investing dollars and resources more towards longer-term, collaborative and sustainable problem solving (ie, addressing the root causes of our community’s social issues).

“We are committed to remaining relevant, nimble and responsive to the needs of our community, pivoting our work based on identified priorities and needs at any given time.

“We invest in projects that engage diverse resources and strategic collaborations and partnerships.”
