  • Virgin Islands Marine Rebuild Fund

    Looking beyond survival mode, the Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands (CFVI) has established the “Marine Rebuild Fund” which is a 501(c)(3) . The fund was started with $15,000 from US Virgin Islands Irma & Maria GoFundMe. All monies will be used to boost employment for virgin islanders by forming a network of local contractors to help clean up current cruising grounds (bays, beaches, marinas), identify growth opportunities in the marine industry and work with the local university & high schools to create vocational programs to track young virgin islanders into the marine industry. Why focus on the marine industry at a time like this? Large hotels are projecting 12 month rebuild timelines — yachts can begin work in a much shorter timeframe as long as we clean up the cruising grounds. The hope is that the yachting industry can restart and provide some income/ stability during an otherwise economically sluggish time.
