The Cummings V. Zuill Leadership Award Committee assesses, on a quarterly basis, applications seeking more than $500 in financial support. For those requesting amounts less than $500, the Committee assesses the applications as and when they are received.
In 2014, the Award Committee agreed funding for nine individuals and four groups in the amount of $26,829. Of that amount, $15,079 was paid out and $11,750 was deferred.
The organisations receiving 2014 Award funding were: the Bermuda Coalition, Centre on Philanthropy, Family Centre, Greenrock, Centre Against Abuse, Salvation Army and PRIDE.
The programmes supported included overseas conferences and leadership forums, the Streetwise MBA programme at the Bermuda College and addiction treatment training.
Since its inception, the Cummings V. Zuill Leadership Award has contributed almost $250,000 to 168 individuals working with 45 of Bermuda's third sector organisations.
