Celebrate the memory and life of a loved one through CFVI’s memorial funds. The Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands honors the memories of loved ones by enriching the lives of Virgin Islanders beyond their passing.
A memorial fund is a charitable fund established to accept donations in memory of a loved one and a simple, meaningful way to honor a life. Memorial funds can be established to support a range of charitable causes, including your loved one’s passions and interests. We acknowledge each donation as it is received and notify you of the gift so that you may thank the donor in your own way. All gifts to memorial funds are tax deductible.
Decide what to name your fund. Examples include,
but are not limited to,“The Edward Smith Memorial Fund,” the “Jones Family Fund,” or the
“Smith Legacy Fund for Education.”
Select a family representative (or representatives)
who will decide how donations to the
fund should be distributed.
In lieu of flowers, <<insert individual’s name>> family requests that donations be made to the Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands (CFVI) in honor of his/her life. From these gifts, the family will direct donations to organizations and charitable efforts aligned with <<insert individual’s name>> passions and interests. Checks should be made out to CFVI, with a memo noting “in memory of <<insert individual’s name,>> and mailed to: P.O. Box 380, St. Thomas, VI 00804.
