Foundation History

The ANSA McAL Foundation is the philanthropic arm of the ANSA McAL Group. It is an autonomous body, substantially funded by the Group. All assistance, however, is funded by the Foundation’s own investments.


In October 2005, the signature programme of the ANSA McAL Foundation, the Anthony N. Sabga Awards, Caribbean Excellence was launched. The goal of the Awards is to recognize and support excellence in human endeavour that uplifts the region. By 2023, 57 outstanding Caribbean nationals had been recognized in the categories of Arts & Letters, Entrepreneurship, Public & Civic Contributions, and Science & Technology.
