CFVI Virtual Giving Tree Project Returns for the Holidays

The Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands (CFVI) has announced that its popular Virtual Giving Tree project is back for the third year in a row just in time for the holidays.

“We recognize it’s been another challenging year for everyone, especially our nonprofits in the territory who are on the frontlines every day serving the community,” said CFVI President Dee Baecher-Brown. “To help them with holiday-related needs for children, youth, families and seniors, we are pleased to bring back CFVI’s Virtual Giving Tree for 2022.”

Last year, the project distributed $115,540 to 27 USVI nonprofits to support holiday-related needs for children, youth, families and seniors. More than $66,000 of that came from donations from generous private donors and the general public, which supplemented funds at CFVI already allocated to the project.

Funding was used to provide seniors, low-income families and children, the homeless and others with a variety of needs, including food, personal care products, school uniforms, holiday gift baskets, laptops, shoes, Christmas gifts, and much more. For a detailed list, read the press release from last year.
