Thank you for supporting communities in the USVI to rebuild after last year’s devastating hurricanes. Your donation to the Island Spirit Fund, has supported the following five amazing organizations working tirelessly on the ground to rebuild and renew their communities after hurricanes Irma and Maria:

  • The St. Croix Long Term Recovery Group is working with faith-based, nonprofit, government, business and other organizations working in St. Croix to unite recovery resources with community needs to ensure that even the most vulnerable in the community recover. Your support will help the LTRG provide disaster case management and help rebuild 1,000+ homes.
  • The St. John Long Term Recovery Group is working with local groups and volunteers in St John to rebuild their community after last year’s hurricane season. Your funds will support their efforts to put repair the homes of elderly residents in St. John and prepare other structures on the island for the next hurricane season.
  • The St. Thomas Recovery Team (STRT) is working with volunteers to rebuild homes for vulnerable members of the community, including those who are low-income, elderly, and disabled. Your gift will allow STRT to rebuild homes that would not be able to be rebuilt otherwise.
  • The Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands (CFVI) is working with local initiatives related to environmental rebuilding and the marine economy. Your support will support CFVI’s efforts to build momentum in connecting to issues including public health, social equity, tourism, sustainability, and resilience.
  • All Hands and Hearts is working with volunteer teams on St. Thomas and St. John to fulfill a long-term commitment to help the U.S. Virgin Islands recover. Your support will help All Hands and Hearts to repair child care facilities, to manage waste and debris, and to muck, gut, and sanitize homes.

Thank you for your continued dedication to rebuilding hurricane-affected communities during this time of need. With your support, our nonprofit partners are able to continue making a tangible impact in the lives of so many.
