“Meeting monthly, via zoom due to COVID restrictions, the new division currently has 38 nonprofit organisations and registered charities as members. The division has sub committees currently focused on issues related to the Lotteries Act, the financial burden of taxes and fees on registered charities and better understanding the role of the Registrar General.”

Nonprofit Co-Chairperson, Ms Burland Adams comments, “The nonprofit sector in Bermuda is pleased to have worked with the Chamber of Commerce to provide a platform for Bermuda’s nonprofit sector.

“Since forming in October 2020, we have come together to discuss issues and opportunities for improving the sector through government relations, collaboration and advocacy. The Chamber has been able to provide a new forum for many organisations in the community and I encourage any nonprofit which wishes to learn more to contact the Chamber of Commerce.”

    Volunteerism at its best.

    Our third sector plays a critical role everyday – let alone what they have accomplished during the pandemic. This new group will help redefine our third sector in 2021 as our Government has limited money and our people are hurting.

    The Chamber is a natural home for developing our third sector including strategy, policy and comprehensive community engagement as they are well known for cost effectively caring about our entire Bermuda community.
