Nonprofit Consortium of St. Croix (USVI)

by St. Croix Foundation for Community Development
Nonprofit Consortium of St. Croix (USVI)


The Nonprofit Consortium actively convenes 40+ organizations in health & human services, environment & climate change, and education to collaborate in 1) programs; 2) fundraising efforts, and 3) organizational capacity building. This project will be critical in the aftermath of Hurricanes Irma and Maria, as it will convene both front-line service providers and secondary impact service organizations. This level of strategic coordination is vital to the re-building of the island after the storm.

Nonprofit organizations on St. Croix are severely underfunded, along with the medical, educational, and socioeconomic services and programs that are part of most American communities. The US Virgin Islands are almost never included in grant programs from American foundations. Also, since St. Croix has a minimal middle-class population, the human and civic services that are critical to any community are severely underfunded.


The St. Croix Foundation for Community Development created the Nonprofit Consortium to convene organizations around major issues of social concern (i.e. public safety). On September 15, this project convened front-line service relief providers and long-term service providers to begin creating a post-hurricane response plan. This is one example of how the project convened multiple organizations and thought leaders around a wide community problem.

Long-Term Impact

The Nonprofit Consortium will be able to impact economic development in the following ways: 1. Create a collaborative model to raise money for multiple organizations 2. Advocate for American foundations to direct funding to nonprofit organizations on the USVI 3. Create a model for other island communities (both US and international) to adapt to create a solid balance of economic sustainability and community development
