An independent, not-for-profit organisation

Working in partnership with the Corporation of St. George, the Bermuda Government, public and private sectors and the local community.

About

In December 2000 the Historic Town of St. George and its Related Fortifications were deemed to be of “Outstanding Universal Value” and thereby became designated a World Heritage Site (WHS) by the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO)! The Historic Towne of St. George and its Related Fortifications are outstanding, but an undervalued Bermuda national treasure for culture, education, the environment and our economy. As this is poorly known, the importance and its potential is overlooked. The St. George’s Foundation wishes to change this perception, and we aim to raise the profile of Bermuda’s World Heritage Site at home and abroad. To do this, we will seek collaborative agencies and interested parties and bring them into the fold to look after and protect our Island’s World Heritage Sites for future generations.

 

In 1999 the St. George’s Foundation was formed, and in 2019 to 2020 after completing an exhaustive restructure, the St. George’s Foundation is ready to proceed with its new mission and we invite you to join us!
