Highlights on CFVI Grants
Partnering with the community is what we do. Since 1990 the Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands has been accumulating assets given by you and your neighbors - and year after year CFVI has been increasing its support and grants to the people of our Territory. To date, CFVI has given away more than $24 Million.
In 2015, our total assets were over $9 million.
