NOW is the Time!

Your support has never been more critical. 

While still reeling from the aftermath of Hurricane Irma, the US Virgin Islands (USVI) were further decimated 12 days later by Hurricane Maria, and further isolated themselves from urgently needed supplies due to Maria’s destruction of Puerto Rico.

All donations will be matched, dollar-for-dollar, up to $500,000

 

The vast majority of the USVI is, and will be without power or running water for months.

Over 70% of the buildings have sustained damaged.

1,200 U.S. National Guardsmen (800 from the Virgin Islands – some of whom have lost their own homes) are helping residents dig out and deliver Meals Ready to Eat (MREs) which are far below sufficient caloric and nutritional value.

We need to act NOW in this time of great need. 

How You Can Help

Right now, the most effective and impactful way you can help is to donate money. This relief fund is DIRECT support to our trusted on-the-ground efforts helping the communities with the most urgent need.

We are supplying food (real food with real nutritional value), generators, fresh water, everyday goods (t-shirts, socks, etc) and fuel directly to the communities in most need. WE are part of this community and know who needs the most help right now. We live here. We are on the ground. We know who needs help. We know how to support them. In order to do that, we need your help!

Who Are We? 

We are a group of concerned community and business leaders in the U.S. Virgin Islands who have partnered with the Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands (CFVI), to create the Irma & Maria VI Emergency Fund (IMVI) to provide the local, immediate, on-the-ground relief that our island community urgently needs.

The funds donated to IMVI are directed by our efforts to ensure 100% of all donations are used for only the most vital relief efforts, and nothing is wasted.
