The Cummings V Zuill Award Committee reviews most applications quarterly, the deadlines being end of May, August, November and February each year. For applicants seeking less than $500, those applications are reviewed as and when received.
Since its inception, the Committee has awarded a total of $420,772. The total number of awards granted is 383 and, in the process, 67 non-profit organisations in Bermuda were assisted.
In 2018, the Committee granted $47,888 in awards. The organisations assisted were:
The Reading Clinic
Spirit of Bermuda
Centre on Philanthropy
The Family Centre
The Anglican Church
Midlands Height Church
Six additional charities were assisted as the Zuill Award supported 10 applicants attending the Centre on Philanthropy’s bi-annual third sector conference. In addition to supporting conference attendance in Bermuda and overseas, as well as a variety of training courses and workshops, the Cummings V Zuill Award helped two individuals studying for a BSc in Human Services and an MA in Youth Work & Community Development, respectively.
