Announcement of 2023 laureates
- March 1, 2023
The ANSA MCAL Foundation’s major initiative is the funding and administration of the Anthony N Sabga Awards – Caribbean Excellence. Since the first laureates were awarded in 2006, it has supported and recognized 57 exceptional Caribbean people with awards of over TT$28 million.
Since inception, the Foundation has been committed to addressing a broad range of social needs. In recent times it has adopted a policy of concentrating on projects of national and regional significance.
The Foundation was created by the 1993 merger of the ANSA Foundation, formed in 1986, to assist charitable causes and the McAL Foundation, formed with similar aims in 1981. A year later Dr. Sabga was responsible for the rejuvenation of the Guardian Neediest Cases Fund, a long-standing charitable project of the Trinidad Publishing Company Limited, publisher of the Trinidad and Tobago Guardian.
Notable achievements include:
The Foundation is chaired by Mr Andrew Sabga, Deputy Chairman of the ANSA McAL Group.
Its Patron is Mr A Norman Sabga (LLD, Hon, UWI), Chairman of the ANSA McAL Group.
From 1991 to 2003 the Foundation received 1% of the profit of the ANSA McAL Group. By investing this endowment, the Foundation is now self-financing, and able to undertake in perpetuity the significant commitment of the Anthony N Sabga Awards – Caribbean Excellence programme.
