Betsson AB has renewed its principal sponsorship of the ‘Malta Social Impact Awards’ (MSIA Awards), which recognises the non-profit organisations and charitable institutions that have progressed the island’s environmental and social sustainability.
For a fourth consecutive year, Betsson will serve as title sponsor of the MSIA awards – an event organised by Maltese charitable organisations The Gasan Group and Inspirasia Foundation.
Hosted on Saturday 27 March, the fifth edition of the MSIA Awards will be broadcast on TV Malta (TVM) and will feature Betsson Group CEO Jesper Svensson on the MSIA judging panel.
The awards night will see five Malta-based non-profits recount social and community initiatives launched during 2020. The finalists will compete for a share of €100,000 in grants supporting their organisations, with the further mentoring of the MSIA ‘TakeOff Programme’ providing non-profits with business and academic support from the University of Malta.
Confirming its sponsorship renewal, Betsson stated that it was proud to sponsor an event which had awarded over €320,000 in grants to 13 non-profits during the past five years – with each organisation continuing to its charitable services benefiting Malta’s wider community.
“These initiatives have had an impact on the lives of thousands of individuals in Malta, from children to the elderly, migrants and disadvantaged groups, as well as people suffering from mental or physical health issues,” said Betsson.
