At the Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands (CFVI), the health and wellbeing of our partners, staff, neighbors and community is always our top priority. And we couldn’t be more grateful to be part of such a caring, generous, and resilient community.
The changes taking place in the Territory and across the world in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic are happening rapidly and can be overwhelming. During this unprecedented time, as we collectively navigate the public health and economic emergency of the coronavirus here in the Territory, we encourage donors, companies or organizations that want to support CFVI’s COVID-19 Crisis Relief and Recovery work to make a donation to the Building Forward Fund (BFF).
CFVI is conducting ongoing outreach to understand needs and resources in our community as we deal with the impacts of this crisis, and anticipates that this will require significant and long-term attention. The Building Forward Fund will be used to continue to address these needs.
To date, CFVI has been providing assistance to a wide range of needs and has directed funding to those nonprofits that are providing support to our most vulnerable citizens: children, seniors, homeless, and low-income families. Support directed to the Building Forward Fund will enable CFVI to continue to be as flexible as possible in helping our community at this time.
For larger donations, CFVI can also accept wire transfers or checks. Distributions from the Fund will be determined by the Board of Directors of the Community Foundation.
CFVI encourages donors who have a more defined area of focus or a specific project they wish to support, to consider establishing a DonorAdvised Fund or creating a Fiscal Sponsorship. Please contact us at email@example.com for more information.
CFVI is recognized among donors, nonprofit organizations, and the public as a thought leader for responsible fiscal and administrative excellence, and as a cross-sector facilitator. The Foundation has a track record of administering significant grants to organizations and nonprofits that enhance the educational, physical, social, cultural, and environmental welfare of the U.S. Virgin Islands.
