To help those who are in need in St. Vincent and the Grenadines

Urgent Appeal for Donations

St. Vincent Disaster Relief Fund

The volcano La Soufriere erupted on April 8th. Close to 17,000 Vincentians were evacuated from their homes. There could be additional eruptions and ashfall. The full extent of the damage to life and property is not fully known at this time.

The Mustique Charitable Foundation has set up an MCF-St. Vincent Disaster Relief Fund to help Vincentians through this difficult time. It has been initially funded with US$100,000 by The Mustique Charitable Foundation. Many of you have asked how you can be of help to our Vincentian neighbors. Please consider donating to this fund by making a contribution to The Mustique Charitable Foundation.

Roger Pritchard, Managing Director of the Mustique Company, is coordinating with the National Emergency Management Organization and the Government of St. Vincent to determine the most effective use of the MCF-St. Vincent Disaster Relief Fund. We are most fortunate to be able to look to him and his team for guidance on the distribution of funds as the full extent of the challenge facing St. Vincent unfolds.

If you wish to wire transfer funds, please email info@mustiquefoundation.org indicating that you wish to contribute to the MCF-St. Vincent Disaster Relief Fund and the bank details will be sent to you.

Checks payable to The Mustique Charitable Foundation indicating it is for the MCF-St. Vincent Disaster Relief Fund can be mailed to our address:

2020 – 2021

The Mustique Charitable Foundation is dedicated to helping those who are in need in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

This year, despite the challenging environment, we are funding:

  • 170 partial scholarships for disadvantaged young Vincentians at the St. Vincent and the Grenadines Community College (Division of Technical and Vocational Education and Division of Teachers Education), and the Barrouallie Technical Institute, Campden Park Technical Institute, Georgetown Technical Institute, and Georgetown Technical Institute
  • the purchase of 1,704 books for 126 preschools and 1 primary school and support for literacy professionals covering 225 schools and potentially reaching some 50,000 children.

Beyond the statistics, there is story after story of a child who can rise out of a wheelchair and lead a normal, happy childhood after a life-changing operation, a young starting reader where the doors of literacy have been opened and the light of opportunity begins to shine in, a jobless and dispirited youth given the opportunity to learn a skill and feel the vital surge of pride in accomplishment so necessary for a productive life. These stories are worth repeating.

The Mustique Charitable Foundation is a registered US 501(c)3 non-profit organization and is funded by the Mustique community of homeowners, renters, and friends.
