Even throughout the current pandemic, the territory’s local non-profit organizations have continued providing for the most vulnerable and less fortunate within our communities.

To provide support within the last two months, FirstBank provided grants totaling $40,000 to nine local non-profits through its Community Reinvestment Program (CRP). The CRP is focused on projects and programs developed and managed by non-profits with special priority given to initiatives that serve low- and moderate-income individuals and families.

The organizations receiving funding were located across St. Thomas, St. John and St. Croix: Family Resource Center, Patient Assist VI, Cancer Support VI, Catholic Charities of the VI, My Brother’s Workshop, St. John Community Foundation, Project Promise VI, Lutheran Social Services and the St. Croix Community Foundation.

“At FirstBank, we recognize the tremendous contributions of non-profit organizations. Be it economic development, meal programs through soup kitchens, providing healthcare for the uninsured, educational programs, we are proud that these funds have been able to support delivery of critical services in our community and helped protect those most in need,” said Valdamier Collens, SVP, USVI business director.

The Community Reinvestment Program is part of the bank’s continued commitment to being an outstanding corporate citizen not only through funding opportunities but also through financial education outreach and employee volunteerism.

Unlike many news organizations, we haven't put up a paywall - we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. Our sites are more popular than ever, but advertising revenues are falling - so you can see why we could use your help. Our independent journalism costs time, money and hard work to keep you informed, but we do it because we believe that it matters. If everybody who appreciates our reporting efforts were to help fund it for as little as $1, our future would be much more secure. Thanks in advance for your support!
