The company’s commitment to help build stronger communities follows a three-tiered approach comprising corporate funding, employee-sponsored initiatives, and an annual healthy lifestyles event. Our community outreach spans a wide spectrum of social programmes that encourage education, youth development, protection of the environment, health and safety.

We are especially proud of our long-standing partnership with the College of The Bahamas through which we provide scholarships to six qualifying students each year. Since the scholarship programme’s inception in 1988, we have provided over $300,000 in tuition assistance for more than 80 students.

We also continue our support of the national competitive swimming programme through the Annual Family Guardian Swim Meet hosted by the Barracudas Swim Club, now in its twenty-fourth year.

During 2009 we completed our 5-year pledge to the Bahamas National Trust, providing a total of $50,000 towards the development of the Harrold and Wilson Ponds National Park.

The Company’s Annual Calendar Photo Contest continues to inspire local photographers and the public to heighten their awareness and appreciation of Bahamian nature. Our calendars have been distributed among our policyholders and the general public for over forty years and have played a part in documenting our national flora and fauna.

We are very proud of the level of employee volunteerism which has been developing over the years through a programme we have dubbed Operation Love My Community. During 2009 our staff and agents visited more than 12 organizations, including the Children’s Emergency Hostel and St. Matthew’s Daycare for the Aged (Nassau), the Northern Council for the Disabled (Freeport), Every Child Counts (Abaco), and Rolleville Primary School (Exuma).

Through our voluntary Staff Charity Fund programme, employees also make financial donations to several social causes during the year. In 2009 a significant contribution was made to the Breathe Easy Campaign to assist in the purchase of ventilators for Princess Margaret Hospital’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

As a part of Family Guardian's 45th anniversary celebrations in 2010, our annual Founders' Day was launched. All company offices throughout The Bahamas closed for business on September 17 to commemorate Family Guardian's formation with a day of activities designed to positively impact the communities we serve. Management, staff and agents gave their time and talent to assisting a variety of institutions with repairs to their properties and entertainment for residents.
