Feb. 16, 2008 – The Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands invites individuals and community organizations to apply for their 2008 Mini-Grant Program. The foundation awards mini-grants to innovative programs that respond to the needs of children and families in the U.S.V.I. Now in its 12th year, the program has provided approximately $300,000 in grants to over 500 community organizations and individuals, according to a press release from CFVI's president, Dee Baecher-Brown.
This year, it will award up to $25,000 in grants. Individual awards range from $250 to $1,000. Any private group (i.e. school class or club, sports team, alumni group, etc.) or individual in the V.I. may submit an application for a mini-grant. Proposals will also be accepted from established non-profit organizations.
CFVI mini-grants support innovative programs that enhance the educational, physical, social, cultural and environmental well being of children, youth and families in the V.I.
