Summary

The CARE Fund seeks to adjoin local, regional, national and international philanthropic partners in support of our disaster relief and resiliency strategies in response to the COVID19 Global Pandemic. As a community-based foundation serving disproportionately vulnerable, under-served American residents in the U.S. Caribbean, St. Croix Foundation is leading our community through a progressive and proactive approach to philanthropy grounded by a commitment to social equity and self-sufficiency.

Challenge

The devastation wrought by Hurricane Maria on St. Croix in 2017 left gaping holes in already weakened public service systems! Today, with the island's only hospital barely operational and slated to be decommissioned in the summer of 2020 because of the storm, the potential severity of COVID-19 on our island community is simply crippling. With 17 confirmed cases already, fortifying our organization's philanthropic capacity to support our community now and in the future is an imperative.

Solution

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 Staffing, as well as Community Resilience, Preparedness and Planning (to include food security, public health and social services).

Long-Term Impact

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