The FBCF is a public charity that is exempt from Federal income tax under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.  Contributions to FBCF are deductible under section 170 of the Code. The FBCF operates on a fee for service, cost-recovery basis.

The FBCF accepts eligible charitable contributions from American donors and distributes them to unaffiliated charitable, nonprofit organizations registered on GiveBermuda.org.

Individuals, families, businesses and other nonprofit organizations who have an interest in or connection to the Bermuda may donate to FBCF to facilitate a recommendation of a  grant to qualified nonprofit organizations in Bermuda, at the discretion of the FBCF Board of Directors.  Donors through Friends of Bermuda Community Foundation support a wide range of activities including:
