HAMILTON, BERMUDA – In the lead up to the 2019 Cup Match holiday, employees of the Bermuda Monetary Authority (the BMA or Authority) partnered with the Family Centre to help raise funds for their specialised programmes and services assisting children and families across the island.
BMA staff members supported Family Centre’s annual Cup Match Tag Day on Wednesday 31 July by manning various locations around the City to collect donations and hand out Cup Match team stickers. Prior to that on Friday 26 July, BMA staff wore denim to work in exchange for a donation to the charity.
The efforts were part of the Authority’s expanded community outreach in 2019 to honour its five decades of service to Bermuda. The Authority will partner with five of the island's registered charities whose missions address areas such as children and families, arts and culture, the environment, education and seniors.
In addition to five ‘BMA Days of Giving’ where BMA staff volunteer for specific tasks identified by the charity partner, 21 Bermuda charities will benefit from monies raised by staff who participate in the BMA’s ‘Charitable Fridays’ – internal dress down days held on the second and fourth Friday of each month in exchange for a minimum donation benefiting the selected charity.
