One of the fundamental principles established by our founders was to minimize competition with our nonprofit partners. For over 30 years, St. Croix Foundation has intentionally forgone building a centralized operating endowment. Instead, concurrent with building and sustaining an operating reserve, we are very intentionally building capacity in local nonprofits, in turn investing in People Power. It’s a progressive philanthropic format – and it works because of supporters like you. Please GIVE today.
