Giving Back to Our Community


Donations, Sponsorship and Free Use of VIPA Property

The Virgin Islands Port Authority believes in giving back to our local and national communities, and is a strong supporter of many charitable foundations, events and activities. The following guidelines will help you submit a request for advertising support, donations or sponsorship of your activity. Please read the guidelines carefully to determine whether your request meets our criteria.  Please note that we receive a large number of applications each year, and regret that we are unable to fill all requests.



General Criteria

The goal of the VI Port Authority’s giving program is to contribute to the well-being of our communities and those who live in them. As an organization, we have decided to focus our support in the following target areas:

1. Events that enhance the U.S. Virgin Islands’ travel and tourism industry
2. Events that contribute to the U.S. Virgin Islands’ economy
3. Charities and activities targeted towards children, disadvantaged youths and schools
4. Earth and environmentally friendly causes
5. Health care

  • All requests for sponsorship or a donation must be submitted to the VI Port Authority’s executive director in writing at least eight weeks prior to your event or activity.
  • All requests are subject to the approval of the VI Port Authority executive director.
  • Applicants should clearly outline how the funds or services provided will be used and how the Virgin Islands Port Authority will be publically acknowledged for our contribution.
  • The Virgin Islands Port Authority does not support political parties, groups or events.
  • Mail requests to:

Executive Director
Virgin Islands Port Authority
P.O. Box 301707
St. Thomas, VI 00803


If your request is approved:

Upon approval of your request, you must contact our public relations office immediately to complete:

(1.) A new vendor form if you have never done business with the VI Port Authority, and
(2.) A W-9 form for tax purposes. Download the W9 form here.

Your donation check will not be processed until you complete and return these forms.

Checks are processed by VIPA’s accounting office, and will be issued within 30 days after the date of approval by VIPA’s executive director.


If your request is denied:

We regretfully cannot fund as many charitable and worthy causes as we would like to due to budget restrictions. You may contact our public relations office if you wish to discuss other ways we might be able to assist your organization.
