Clarien Bank today announced it has donated $95,000 to a host of education, health and youth based charities on the Island in support of its mission to enhance the Bermuda community.
Four Sporting Organizations received donations, which included, the Bermuda Equestrian Federation, Bermuda Kappa League, Bermuda Youth Rugby (RFU), and Young Men’s Social Club. The donations were made through The Clarien Foundation, a charitable trust that oversees all charitable efforts and donations made by the bank.
“At Clarien, we are committed to investing in the lives of those in our community,” said Ian Truran, Chief Executive Officer at Clarien Bank. “We believe that providing underserved people and families in Bermuda with access to educational resources, healthcare and other areas of support will ultimately improve their chances of living a healthy, productive and successful life in the future. That’s why we are delighted to have this opportunity to support these worthy not-for-profit organizations on the Island. We look forward to seeing the noticeable difference these programmes and services can make in the lives of everyday people and are proud to continue serving as a responsible corporate citizen in Bermuda.”
Earlier this year, Clarien provided a financial boost of $106,000 to six registered charities on the Island, as part of its annual giving programme.
The four Sporting Organizations collected $15,000.00 combined:
· Bermuda Equestrian Federation - $2,500.00
· Bermuda Kappa League - $5,000.00
· Bermuda Youth Rugby (RFU) - $5,000.00
· Young Men’s Social Club - $2,500.00
Michael DeCouto, Clarien’s SVP, Chief Digital and Marketing Officer said: “Clarien Bank is a strong advocate for charities that help to improve the lives of Bermudians and ultimately strengthen our community. Twice a year, we select not-for-profit organizations that seek to make a substantial improvement in youth development, education, health or human services and offer financial and in-kind support to them for their programmes or fundraising events in order to help them best meet their objectives.”
