Community Outreach

Philosophy

Oil Management Services Limited (OMSL) (and its associated companies Oil Insurance Limited and Oil Casualty Insurance, Ltd.) is a major business enterprise with a significant, long-term stake in the community of Bermuda. The Companies are committed to maintaining good corporate citizen status. To this end we wish to financially assist and facilitate programs that promote a better quality of life for all Bermuda residents. In addition, we encourage our employees to be active participants in volunteer programs in the local community.

Funding

OMSL has established an annual budget which is distributed at the discretion of the Charitable Contributions Committee.

Type of Contributions

Our primary areas of focus include:

  • Human Services and Health
  • Education
  • Environment and Conservation
  • Youth
  • Arts, Culture and Heritage
  • Miscellaneous Charities

Criteria

The Committee will consider requests from Bermuda-registered charities whose programs reach a broad segment of the local community. All requests must be received in writing. Requests in excess of $10,000 require supporting financial information relative to the organization and/or specific project.

Key Community Partners

Our Charitable Contributions Committee makes approx. 40 donations annually. We are proud to support the work of a broad spectrum of charities providing much needed services within our community.

Exclusions

Consideration will not be made to individuals, religious organizations, political groups, schools, individual sports clubs, PTAs, travel and charitable intermediaries (for example, Lions Club).

Decision-Making Process

The Committee meets three times per year, typically in April, August and November. We spend most of our budget at the first meeting of the year, so best if you submit your request prior to March 31.

Please send us a one page (not more than 2) request. If we need more information, we will send you a note.
