Peter Cundill



The Peter Cundill Foundation is a private, philanthropic body based in Bermuda, whose aim is to make a difference in the lives of young people in the areas of education, health, sport and the arts and humanities. The Board meets to consider grant applications on a regular basis.

The definition of youth is from birth to 25 years.

The Foundation will consider supporting projects by means of one-off or multi-year funding and is open to entering into partnership with other funding bodies that have a proven track record. There are no geographical restrictions.

Funding will not be provided for endowments, large capital cost building projects or budget deficits. Additional operating costs arising from a project for which funding is being sought should be included and itemized in the application's budget.


Grant Application Process

The Foundation follows a proactive grant strategy, seeking out suitable grantees within its focus but is willing to entertain approaches from organizations and individuals that it has not self-sourced, as long as there is a clear fit to its focus.

We have a two-stage application process. In the first instance, please send an email stating the name and web address of your organisation, the title and brief description of the project you wish to put forward and the amount of the request.

Your approach will be acknowledged and you will then be advised whether or not the Foundation would like to invite a Stage 1 application, in which case further information will be sent to you.

Please email your submission to Mrs. Fiona O'Driscoll at
