The BVI Charitable Fund was established on Easter Monday, March 24, 2008 to serve as a vehicle to raise money for several worthwhile causes in the British Virgin Islands including but not limited to the BVI Red Cross, St. George’s School, Tortola; and St. Mary’s School, Virgin Gorda.

The co chairs of the BVI Charitable Fund are the Hon. Ralph T. O’Neal, OBE, Premier and Ajit Mathew George, Managing Director, Nail Bay Resort.

The first fundraiser that is being organized by the BVI Charitable Fund is the 2008 Virgin Islands Winemakers Dinners.

The BVI Charitable Fund is also assembling a collection of accommodations to be marketed year round as “The BVI Dream Vacation Collection” featuring a variety of homes and luxury hotel rooms in the BVI. The BVI Charitable Fund has identified a number of charities in the USA and UK who feature silent and live auctions that raise significant amounts of money by auctioning trips to places such as Virgin Gorda and the British Virgin Islands. The BVI Charitable Fund plans to offer a package from “The BVI Dream Vacation Collection” to these charities in return for them agreeing to share 50% of the proceeds from their auctions with The BVI Charitable Fund.

The BVI Charitable Fund has no staff or overhead in that Nail Bay Resort has agreed to loan its staff at no cost for the first twelve months and underwrite the office expenses.
