The Anguilla Community Foundation was launched in May 1999. This is seen as an important event for the community, as it is an effort to raise a significant amount of permanent funds to serve the charitable and community needs of the island.

The Anguilla Community Foundation is being organized as a permanent collection of endowed funds for the long-term benefit of Anguilla. It will carry out various charitable purposes and has a long-term goal in increasing the assets held as permanent endowment for the island.

During the past year a feasibility study and the initial planning took place by a steering committee under the guidance of Carrolle Devonish, former president of the Philadelphia Foundation.

The committee hosted the Inclusiveness Committee of the Council of Foundations in February and at that time a community meeting took place to explain the foundation concept. The Social Security Board has acted as the incubator for the Community Foundation and is continuing to support its growth and development.

The steering committee has now become the board of the Anguilla Community Foundation and is composed of a broad range of Anguillian citizens. Members include Timothy Hodge. Sutcliffe Hodge, Eustace Guishard, Courtney Devonish, Emile Gumbs, Alecia Ballin, Leroy Martinez, Josephine Gumbs, Rhona Richardson, Othlyn Vanterpool, Stanley Reid, Joseph Payne, Errol Brooks, John Benjamin, Brenda Carty, Cardigan Connor, and Christopher Richardson. Carrolle Devonish has been engaged as the consultant for the project.

The Anguilla Community Foundation is presently identifying donors, educating the community, launching a logo competition and planning initial ways that it can help the community.
