About the Junior Philanthropists

We are the Junior Philanthropists - a group of youths under the age of 18 who want to make a difference in this world.  Our first project was the Youth 4 Youth Tennis Tournament which is becoming an annual event.  Not only should this be a fun event but the money we raise goes towards our fund at the Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands (CFVI), for the benefit of education and community youth programs on the Virgin Islands.  Our Fund is just beginning and our membership is starting to grow.  You will see us at the St. Thomas Club, volunteering to make this a fun and successful tennis event and also seeking new members - youths under the age of 18 who want to participate and make a difference in their community.

Being a member of the Junior Philanthropists means you get to come up with fundraising ideas.  We hope to organize at least one major event each year.  In addition, members, with help of the CFVI, decide where our funds get allocated.  We research and discover new projects that help youths in our community.  You will get to learn what it is to be a philanthropist and have fun along the way with other members.  From YOUTHS to YOUTHS with fun in the middle!
