The St. Croix Foundation is a hybrid organization, serving as a grant maker as well as an operating foundation that provides direct services and leadership to improve the socioeconomic welfare of the US Virgin Islands.
Established in 1990, the Foundation was specifically created to respond to severe conditions after Hurricane Hugo devastated St. Croix in 1989. Our founders shared the belief that the damage wrought by Hugo demanded immediate leadership and that a community foundation would have the most flexibility to address the challenges our Territory faced.
We have spent more than 20 years since Hugo serving as a bridge between diverse groups to identify critical resources for current and emerging needs, filling vital gaps that our government and specialized nonprofits cannot. Our work impacts almost every aspect of life in the US Virgin Islands and has earned the Foundation a track record of success in the form of noteworthy achievements in the areas of Economic Development, Historic Restoration, Public Safety, and Education Reform.
Since 2000, St. Croix Foundation has been a conduit of over $27 million dollars, leveraging resources and building diverse partnerships to build healthy and prosperous communities.
