GRANTEE SPOTLIGHT: CFVI was proud to provide grant funding to The Virgin Islands Children's Museum, in partnership with Princess Cruises Community Foundation, to support the Free Field Trip Program for school year 2019-2020 as well as distribution of At Home Discovery Kits, which provided families with the tools needed to keep kids engaged and inspired to create and learn at home. Grant funds were initially used to support two free field trips before the museum had to close due to COVID restrictions. Grant funds were then redirected to create and distribute Earth Science themed At Home Discovery Kits to 950 youth throughout the Territory, and to support related administrative costs.

“CFVI literally saved us after the storm. We didn’t know what we were going to do. Without the support of the Community Foundation, the VI Children’s Museum would have no longer been able to provide enriching experiences for children and families.”
“Without the assistance of CFVI, the St. Thomas Swimming Association would have been forced to close and it is doubtful that it would be in operation today.”
“Thank you Community Foundation. With your support, I am able to pursue my dreams of higher education.”
“None of this would have been possible without the vision and commitment of the Community Foundation who is committed to the development of the WHOLE child which is at the core of the Iggi message.”
