    Congratulations to all award recipients.

    Every year – year after year – our wonderful Bank of Bermuda Community Foundation invests in our youth.

    They are our most significant supporter of individual scholarships and charities in Bermuda. All accomplished with a small staff and an impressive collection of community volunteers.

    Thank you to all involved for annually showing us how investing in our youth is an investment in our future.

    It would be wonderful to know where all the students our community foundation has funded over the years are living and working now?
