CFVI Requesting Proposals for Projects on Workforce Development, Housing, Environment

Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands

The Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands (CFVI) is accepting proposals for projects and programs related to aspects of continued environmental recovery, resilience and building forward in the U.S. Virgin Islands following the 2017 hurricanes. Specifically, it is seeking projects engaged in: (1) workforce development, (2) housing and (3) environmental/marine.

Due to specifications of the funding source, projects involving or benefiting minors (youth under age 18) will not be considered.

To be eligible, applicants must be a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization or must identify an eligible fiduciary agent. Proposals from faith-based organizations, academic institutions and government agencies will also be considered.

Projects should last no longer than six months with a final report and quarterly progress metrics required. Funding for these projects is based on monthly disbursements, which vary in amount. There is no cap on the amount that proposals may request; however, CFVI suggests project budgets of no more than $50,000. Proposals will be reviewed on a rolling basis.

This opportunity is made possible thanks to funding from the Island Spirit Fund, established by Cruzan® Rum in partnership with GlobalGiving.

Submit the proposal at under “Island Spirit Fund Projects.”

Questions should be sent to CFVI Director of Grants and Programs Anna Wheatley Scarbriel:
