The PwC Staff Donation Matching Program was established ago to donate funds to worthy charities around the island and make a positive difference to those less fortunate.
The program is voluntary and the firm matches all funds raised. These contributions have added up and we have been able to make a positive impact on many of Bermuda’s charities. Recipients have included the Bermuda Paralympian Association, Friends of Hospice, Age Concern, Meals on Wheels and Bermuda Riding for the Disabled.
In early 2009, a portion of funds raised in the Staff Donation Matching Program were donated to the Bermuda Paralympian Association, to cover costs for participating in the 13th Paralympic Games in Beijing. Three future Bermuda paralympians visited the firm on Thursday, February 19, 2009 to receive a check for $15,000 and tell us about their experience at the Beijing Paralympic Games and their hopes for participating in the London Games in 2012. The Paralympic Games is a multi-sport event for athletes with physical disabilities, held every four years following the Olympic Games.
