In the wake of Hurricane Irma and Maria, The University of the Virgin Islands has announced the creation of the UVI Rise Relief Fund. Substantial damage was sustained throughout the the St. Croix and St. Thomas Campuses as well as the St John Academic Center, impacting classes and normal operations. The UVI Rise Relief Fund will provide assistance to students, faculty and staff who were impacted by the storm.   

Your support will aid in the recovery by assisting with basic needs required during a stage of emergency. Over 2,600 students and staff members were impacted by these storms, and your charitable gift will help to bring normalcy back to the campus community.  

Our goal is to raise $900,000.  Text 2017IRMA to 71777 to support this effort.  

The University of the Virgin Islands is recognized as an educational entity eligible to receive charitable contributions from companies that receive tax incentives through the Virgin Islands Economic Development Commission (VIEDA). Your gift to the UVI Rise Relief Fund is 100% tax deductible.
