Giving back matters
One of Hamilton Insurance Group’s First Principles is Be more. In particular, Hamilton believes this principle applies to the way in which the Company and its employees support the communities in which they do business.
Hamilton has established a Community Giving Committee in Bermuda, the site of its corporate headquarters, to oversee the allocation of funds to eligible non profit organizations.
During 2017, the Community Giving Committee will continue to fund qualifying charities who are contributing to the wellbeing of Bermuda’s families in one of three general categories: arts/sports, social services and education. At the same time, the committee will be engaged in conversations and meetings to determine a longer-term funding strategy.
This year, committee members will only consider applications for funding at their quarterly meeting on Wednesday, September 20. Applications should be received no later than Wednesday, September 13.

In order to be considered for funding during 2017, organizations must:
- be a Bermuda-registered charity in good standing;
- have a Board of Directors which meets regularly;
- be able to provide current financial statements, either audited or unaudited;
- demonstrate a willingness and ability to collaborate with other organizations; and

- Individual athletes
- Individual schools
