Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands



The Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands (CFVI) was established in 1990 with a $500,000 endowment. CFVI is governed by a Board of Directors composed of community leaders interested in the welfare of the Virgin Islands and managed by a professional staff. CFVI manages more than 90 named funds, administers scholarships and community programs, awards grants, and coordinates the establishment of memorial funds.

To donors, CFVI offers a complete tool kit for charitable giving, expert assistance in learning more about the causes they care about, and the opportunity to join others with similar interests to give together.

To the community at large, CFVI offers a permanent, growing source of grant monies, as well as a common meeting ground and leadership on important issues in the region.

CFVI has established named funds with over $5 million in endowed assets and more than $1 million in annual grants, awards, and scholarships throughout the U.S. Virgin Islands.
