Hurricane Relief Fundraising Underway

US Virgin Islands – In response to the devastating impact of Hurricane Irma and impending effects of Hurricane Jose, the Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands (CFVI) has established The FUND FOR THE VIRGIN ISLANDS. The purpose of this fund is to provide monies for critical needs in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

At this time, donations can be made using PayPal via the following link: http://cfvi.net/donate/donate-fund.php. Please add “Fund for the VI” or “FFVI” into the description/memo line.

Once the downtown Charlotte Amalie office is operational (or an alternative has been identified), donations will be accepted via check, cash and over the telephone.
