                The Centre on Philanthropy

   We believe in a Bermuda where effective and efficient charities and
     nonprofit organisations collaborate with the private sector and
       government to build a more caring and giving Bermuda.

    Lead the Bermuda community in building an effective, efficient and
 sustainable third sector by: advancing knowledge skills and performance,
fostering effective partnerships, creating a unified voice for the sector, and
                   supporting and increasing volunteerism.

“I have enjoyed using the hour logging system on At the end of 2009,
   I was excited to see that I had volunteered over 150 hours with multiple nonprofits in
Bermuda. The hour logging system shows what I have given back to the community and
 also helps the nonprofits I volunteer for to track my hours for their own data collection.”

 “Allied World is committed to its role as a global corporate citizen; sharing its success
in the 15 communities where Allied World conducts business. Charitable Committees in
Bermuda, Europe, Asia and the united States allocate grants to nonprofit organisations
    focusing primarily on youth education and health services. In addition to financial
  resources, we actively encourage our employees to donate their time and energy to
     a variety of worthy programs. These have included food, clothing and toy drives,
      emergency relief efforts and voluntary participation in global community days.

    Specifically, The Centre on Philanthropy advises Allied World’s Bermuda Charity
 Committee, providing information on financial need, and opportunities for volunteerism
   and outreach. With our corporate headquarters in Bermuda, it is a vital part of our
  strategic mission to continue to participate fully in the community where Allied World
   was founded. The Centre’s online site is an invaluable resource for our employees,
  giving them current information on projects and causes that need time and attention.

    The Centre on Philanthropy encourages active collaboration between Bermuda’s
private and public sectors. As a result of their guidance, Allied World has been involved
     in many positive programmes. Their leadership has made a meaningful impact
                         on corporate philanthropy in Bermuda.”

     “As the lone staff member of a small charitable organisation I greatly value having
  a resource like The Centre on Philanthropy. I have attended many of their workshops
 from fundraising to Hr management to financial management and have not only learnt
      much but have found the workshops to be invaluable for networking. It is always
    reassuring when you realise that there are many others facing the same difficulties
   and challenges that you do. The Centre is there to guide and facilitate you in finding
    solutions that will better your organisation and I think there are many of us working
                  in the charitable sector that would be lost without them.”

Chairman's Report
It is with a sense of both sadness and pride that I deliver this, my final Chairman’s report. After five productive and
rewarding years I feel the time is right to step aside. I am however deeply honoured to be named Chair Emeritus
and look forward to continuing my involvement with The Centre on Philanthropy in that capacity.

I am also grateful to be leaving the position in such good hands with former Deputy Chairman Brian Madeiros
assuming the role of Chairman. Brian is a long-standing and committed member of the Board and I am confident
that his leadership will be both embraced and successful. I am equally delighted that Graham Pewter has stepped
into the role of Deputy Chair. We thank him for his ongoing commitment to The Centre and the community.

This year has seen The Centre and the Third Sector as a whole continue to face the challenges that emerged from
the global economic crisis of 2008. Collaboration and impact have become critical in the face of higher demands
and decreased resources. Two groundbreaking projects that require both these elements have been focal points for
The Centre.

Our 2008 three-year strategic plan suggested that The Centre explore need for a community foundation. After a
number of focus groups, visits by experts in the field, and input from stakeholders, a discussion document was
produced and presented to the Board. We have learned that the community supports the concept of this
collaborative funding vehicle. The next step will be getting down to the nuts and bolts of the legal structure and
operational model for the Foundation and ensuring that this new vehicle complements traditional funding

The Third Sector technology platform initiative, also proposed in our 2008 plan, has been taken up by the Bermuda
Civil Society Project Team and a concept document written and reviewed regarding the requirements of this
community tool. The Centre is pleased to be working with its members collaboratively on this important project.

As ever, the Board continues to evolve to ensure stakeholder representation. This year saw Peter Durhager and
Alan richardson retire from the Board; I would like to thank them both for their dedication and expertise. I am
pleased that Peter will remain on The Centre's Advisory Board. Other changes saw Curtis Dickinson step down as
Treasurer but remain on the Board, taking the position of Chair of the Audit Committee. Jane Edgett is now the
Treasurer. Jane is a CA and is already proving an invaluable member of our team. Chiara nannini joined the Board,
bringing legal skills critical to The Centre’s work. Justin Freisenbruch, Vice President of underwriting at
rennaisancere, also joined the Board and his planning and execution skills will be put to good use. Matt Ambrose
moved from the Advisory Board to the Board of Directors where he will complement Andrew Beek's IT skills.

We also said a fond farewell to Gregory Slayton, a member of The Centre's Advisory Board, and welcomed Grace
Shelton, Gregory's replacement as uS Consul General. We thank Gregory for his enthusiasm and energy and have
enjoyed Grace's guidance since assuming her seat.

As noted I have taken the honorary role as Chairman Emeritus. The Board created a class of Emeritus directors and
I am pleased to have been nominated to that class along with The Centre's founder Cummings Zuill.

I would also like to say a special thank you to The Centre’s committed staff and volunteers. They are the everyday
force that sustains The Centre and so many of its initiatives. Their dedication is to be recognised and commended.

Finally, a word for our members whose support allows us to do our work in the community - I know that The Centre
will continue on its mission to help build a better Bermuda and I would like to thank you on behalf of the entire Board
for your continuing support.

Executive Director's Report
The Centre on Philanthropy worked hard in the last year to meet our stakeholders’ growing demand for services. As donors
and nonprofits tried to ensure every dollar and hour given achieved maximum impact, The Centre saw helpdesk calls and
visits increase and participation in all programme areas grow. We are pleased that in these leaner economic times we can
provide leverage and guidance to our members and the community at large.

At the core of The Centre’s mission remains training and education. This year we successfully transitioned to a
curriculum-based programme focused primarily on the principles outlined by the Bermuda national Standards Committee.
We also hosted seven member forum meetings and completed a governance research project that will guide our future
offerings in this area. In total the Training and Education programme held 37 sessions, providing valuable training to 523
participants – an increase once again over the prior year!

In its position as a connecting point for nonprofits, donors and the public, The Centre continued to engage all three through
special events and communications. We were pleased to participate in the Learn-a-Lots TV programme. I loved interacting
with the young actors and actresses, talking with them about the benefits of volunteering in Bermuda.

The Giving section that ran quarterly as part of The royal Gazette was successfully transitioned into the Hands Across
Bermuda supplement. We thank the Donor Forum for their support of this initiative and are now excited to collaborate with
the royal Gazette on the new insert.

The Centre’s volunteer programmes continued to assist nonprofits. Our core tool supporting these programmes,, saw over 10,000 visits from over 6,000 visitors and recorded a 60% increase in new users over the
previous year. Over 900 connections were made between charities and volunteers. We are thrilled that this tool is proving
useful to the community!

The Centre also completed three Community Days that facilitated 80 staff members from ten participating companies
volunteering at 11 charities. Those man hours were put to important use with volunteers engaging in everything from soil
sampling to mural painting.

As The Centre’s programmes and initiatives grow and change we continually review our human resources requirements.
The retirement of our Chair was the most significant change in our volunteer ranks – I personally wish to thank him for his
careful guidance and unwavering support for me and The Centre team. I look forward to continuing our relationship in his
position as Chairman Emeritus. I am also thrilled that Brian Madeiros has assumed the role of Chairman and I am confident
he will lead The Centre with purpose and compassion.

In other areas we welcomed Sally Clinton as our Membership Coordinator, Tracy MacDonald as Community Engagement
Coordinator and Shirlene White as Office Manager and Executive Assistant. We bid a fond farewell to our Communications
Manager Kristin White who is now the full-time Executive Director of raleigh International. Kristin was with The Centre for
five years and we will miss her considerable talents and valuable input.

I want to give a big thank you to all of our volunteers that worked alongside the staff during the year. They ranged in age
from 14 to …well we will not go there….We appreciate every hour they give us. Without their dedication and support many
of our initiatives would not come to fruition. I want to give a special shout out to the brave volunteers who joined the staff
on a very rainy and blustery February day to launch our inaugural Walk the Walk event with Argus.

I am excited about the year ahead. We look forward to working with our stakeholders and hope to see all of you at our 2011
Conference! 2011 will also mark The Centre’s 20th anniversary!

Treasurer’s Report
Members, corporate sponsors, grants, donations and contributed services continue to serve as the financial
foundation of The Centre on Philanthropy.

Membership - Overall renewal rates trended positively this year. A slight decline in corporate renewals was
attributable to changes in the international business sector. This was offset in part by new corporate members,
including the addition of our first international-based insurance company. nonprofit membership reached
nearly 100% renewal. The number of individual memberships increased gradually, with growth budgeted in this
category in the upcoming year.

Sponsorship - The Centre’s programmes would not be possible without the ongoing commitment of corporate
sponsors. Sponsorship levels will increase next year as The Centre prepares to host the third Biennial Third
Sector Conference.

Grants and donations - The Centre received the first of a three-year operational grant from The Atlantic
Philanthropies. This funding allowed The Centre to budget additional resources to community awareness,
training and education.

Contributed services - Professional fees are subsidised significantly by the generosity of key service
providers. Donated fees with respect to audit, IT and other consulting services continue to be critical to The
Centre’s ability to meet its annual budget.

Other revenue - The Centre continues to build capacity as a fiduciary agent. This function now includes the
administration of the Bermuda Civil Society Project, which is funded by various community sponsors.
Additionally, under an agreement with The Atlantic Philanthropies, The Centre will continue to build capacity by
taking on the role of a regranting agent for designated nonprofit organisations, all with the purpose of
strengthening the local capacity for social change.

Operations - Staffing and occupancy represent a significant portion of the annual budget, reflecting The
Centre’s primary mission as a service provider.

Finally, the accompanying five-year financial summary offers an overview of The Centre’s operational trends.
notably, the last three years reflect a gradual growth in net assets, which places The Centre in a relatively solid
position heading into the next fiscal year.

I wish to thank Pamela Barit nolan, her staff, the finance & investment, and audit committees for their valued
support throughout the year.

Highlights from the Financial Year
2010 and a look ahead to the
objectives for 2011

A year in Review
                                                                    Above: The Give Back Games on Horseshoe Beach.

4000 volunteers in 400 Days
On July 23rd, 2009 The Centre on Philanthropy launched a campaign to enroll 4000 volunteers in 400 days on its
website The campaign coincided with Bermuda's 400th Anniversary celebrations and was driven
by The Centre’s previous findings that about 44 percent of Bermudians volunteer their time with nonprofits. Many of
those not presently volunteering identified ‘lack of time’ as the main reason. registration with
means individuals can quickly and easily connect themselves with charities recuiting on to the site (currently 179)
by identifying their interests and available times. On August 26th 2010 The Centre not only reached its goal, but
surpassed it having signed up 4146 individuals in the preceding 400 days!

Training & Education – BoardSource visit
Board members play a vital role in the success of nonprofit organisations. In January 2010, as part of our continuing
programme supporting the development of successful boards, The Centre on Philanthropy hosted three workshops
by Vernetta Walker, Senior Consultant of BoardSource International. BoardSource is recognised around the world
for its dedication to advancing the public good by building exceptional nonprofit boards and inspiring board service.
One hundred and four nonprofit representatives attended these comprehensive sessions which covered topics
including; the fundamentals of effective governance, the basic roles and responsibilities of all board members and
the skills of a successful board chair.

Community Engagement
The Centre on Philanthropy created and held two special fundraising events, which helped raise awareness for
participating member charities and connected them with supporting donors and the general public.

The Give Back Games, held on Horseshoe Bay in September 2009, featured nine international companies
competing in an afternoon of “Beach Olympics” to raise money for the charities of their choice. In turn the charities
were tasked with creating the games (which included everything from a sand castle competition to the flipper relay)
and providing volunteers to run them. This team building exercise saw the companies “win” a total of $56,500 for
the charities, a clear embodiment of the Games’ tagline: Compete to Give, Everyone Wins.

The Argus Walk the Walk, held in February 2010, was a charity walk with a twist – each walker’s registration fee was
passed on as a donation to whichever charity they chose. Over 520 ‘donors’ traversed the 5K course and over
$12,000 was given to 64 charities. Creative organisations such as schools, companies and church groups banded
together to raise as much money as possible for their charity.
In May 2010 was launched through The Centre on Philanthropy’s Donor Forum. The
website features the most complete listing of educational awards available to Bermuda residents. Parents and
students can easily search and shortlist appropriate scholarships, upload and distribute transcripts, and apply online
to multiple scholarships through a standardised form. With literally thousands of dollars of scholarships going
unclaimed each year, addresses and facilitates an important service to both Bermuda’s
students and donors.
