Dozens of philanthropists receive awards

Some of the Island’s biggest philanthropists were recognised for their charitable support at an awards ceremony last night.

The Centre on Philanthropy hosted the event, which saw five companies pick up awards for “significant” donations to non-profit organisations.

The Bank of Bermuda Foundation, KPMG, Catlin, RenaissanceRe and XL all received Foundation Circle awards for their support of the Centre on Philanthropy through grants, sponsorships, memberships and in-kind donations.

A further 40 donors received the Decade of Partnership Award.

The evening started with a cocktail reception at the O’Hara Building on Bermudiana Road in Hamilton.

Guests included Governor George Fergusson, and Bermuda’s charity commissioners, while Home Affairs Minister Michael Fahy and the US Consulate General Robert Settje gave speeches.
