SAINT CROIX FOUNDATION LAUNCHES WEB SITE

The Saint Croix Foundation has just launched its new web site at www.onepaper.com/stcroixfoundation.
Through the online newsletter, The Vanguard, visitors now have an opportunity to learn more about the critical role this community foundation plays in the development of the Virgin Islands and St. Croix in particular.
While the Saint Croix Foundation has made significant impact in the community since 1991, many people are not aware of its existence or its influence.
"This web site will give us broader reach not only in the Virgin Islands but globally, helping us to get the word out about what we are doing," says Stephanie Hodge, associate executive director.
In introducing the AmeriCorps program to the Virgin Islands, the Foundation has provided community-based organizations with much-needed resources and scores of youngsters with hands-on experience in building communities.
Through its anti-crime initiatives, the Foundation has upgraded the police academy curriculum and has helped raise funds to maintain police vehicles. Additionally, the Foundation recently offered the V.I. Police Department free space in Sunday Market Square to relocate its Christiansted operations until a bigger space is identified. The St. Croix Hotel and Tourism Association has spearheaded a fundraising campaign to renovate and outfit the space.
The Saint Croix Foundation has acquired seven buildings in Sunday Market Square — commonly referred to as Times Square — and will begin rebuilding the first structure on Oct. 1. This will mark the initial step in revitalizing the area.
In the area of economic development and education, the Foundation, in partnership with the U.S. Small Business Administration, has opened the Women's Business Center, a resource center for women entrepreneurs. Visit the Center's web site at www.wbcvi.org to find out more.
The Saint Croix Foundation is also involved in a host of other activities too numerous to mention. Visit the web site, find out all about the Foundation's accomplishments in the community, and meet the staff and the Board of Directors who make it happen.
As a community-based organization, the Saint Croix Foundation also wants to
know more about what other organizations are doing and welcomes information.
Please email that information to stxfound@att.net or call (340)773-9898.
In launching its web site, the Saint Croix Foundation becomes the eighth Virgin Islands organization to go online with the OnePaper Inc. network of community publications. All of the V.I. publications, including The Vanguard, can be accessed through the OnePaper home page at www.onepaper.com.
