St. Croix Foundation CARE Fund

by St. Croix Foundation for Community Development Vetted since 2017


The CARE Fund seeks to cultivate national philanthropic partnerships to support our hurricane recovery and resiliency strategy. As a community-centric nonprofit serving disproportionately poor, under-served American residents, St. Croix Foundation is leading our community through recovery, grounded by our commitment to social equity.

The devastation wrought by Maria's Cat 5 winds on St. Croix, the poorest island in the US Caribbean, has been largely overlooked! With the majority of St. Croix still without electricity, 7 of 13 public schools condemned, and the island's only community hospital scheduled to be decommissioned, building philanthropic capacity to support a community in crisis is an imperative.


Through the CARE Fund, St. Croix Foundation will support immediate and long-term work in the following areas: Coordination and Direct Support of Front-line Relief Efforts, Data Collection and Strategic Recovery, Grantmaking and Direct Support for Local Nonprofit Organizations, Operational Capacity Building + Disaster Recovery Staff, Architectural Audits, Sustainable Rebuilding, as well as Resiliency and Preparedness Planning (food security, public safety, communications).

Long-Term Impact

The CARE Fund will build a national model of self-sufficient and sustainable community (re)development.
