The St. Croix Foundation is a hybrid community foundation, serving as both 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. We are visionaries who work outside the box, challenging the status quo to find innovative solutions to create a healthy community and economic prosperity for our Territory.
Established in 1990, the Foundation was created to respond to the damage wrought by Hurricane Hugo in 1989. With 90% of structures destroyed and infrastructure devastated, our founders believed that the arduous task of rebuilding demanded immediate leadership and that a community foundation would provide the most flexibility to address the challenges our Territory faced.
26 Years of leadership in service to our community
Since our inception, St. Croix Foundation has been a conduit of over $37 million dollars, leveraging resources and developing diverse partnerships to build healthy communities. 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.
