Argus Group Holdings has distributed $170,000 to 17 Bermuda-registered charities for the 2022 fiscal year.
Argus’ donations committee awarded the financial grants to finance non-profit activity between April 1, 2021, and March 31, 2022. Each grant was subject to a three-month vetting process, conducted by the seven-member committee, led by chair Joel Schaefer.
Between $5,000 and $25,000 was donated to programmes that fell into the four categories representing the Argus committee’s focus, including: seniors; youth and sport; education; and health and wellness.
The organisations receiving funds include: Action on Alzheimer’s & Dementia; The Adult Education School; Bermuda Cancer and Health Centre; Bermuda Hospitals Charitable Foundation; Bermuda Sloop Foundation; Big Brothers Big Sisters of Bermuda; The Duke of Edinburgh Bermuda; The Eliza Dolittle Society; The Family Centre; Friends of Hospice; Knowledge Quest; Open Airways; P.A.L.S; The PHC Foundation; Teen Haven; Word of Life Bermuda; and The Youth Entrepreneurship Initiative of Bermuda.
Schaefer said: “Argus has a steadfast commitment to the wellbeing of the communities in which it does business. While it isn’t feasible to fund every application we receive, we are delighted to support 17 nonprofits that are making a meaningful impact in our community.”
Applications for the next round of grants will begin in January 2022, to finance programmes during the 2023 fiscal year.
