LeFebvre of Anvil 1 to Donate $750,000 to UVI

The University of the Virgin Islands received a $750,000 donation on Wednesday, May 24, from Dale LeFebvre, founder of the investment and holding company 35711 and manager of Anvil 1, LLC, a technology and knowledge-intensive consulting, advising and investment firm. Anvil 1 is a Research and Technology Park client (RTPark). This donation commitment will be disbursed to the University over a 15-year period and will initially support energy and process technology courses. Additional areas will be selected over the course of the donation period. The contribution will be divided annually between named scholarships for UVI students, and support for UVI academic programs.

“This commitment, which is a result of the company’s involvement with the RTPark, is a shining example of how the RTPark is fulfilling its mission and vision, and how Mr. LeFebvre continues to invest in the growth and quality of the University,” said UVI President David Hall. “His prior gift has strengthened our programs in various areas, and this one will do the same through scholarships and curriculum enhancements. We are delighted that Dale continues to invest in the future of the Virgin Islands by investing in UVI.”
