The Marine Rebuild Fund (MRF) is a marine-focused non-profit initiative operating with fiscal oversight provided by the Community Foundation of Virgin Islands (CFVI) to help rebuild, clean up and, by encouraging marine tourism to return to the USVI, providing cash infusion into the USVI economy during a time of great need. Its projects include laying, maintaining and managing new transient moorings, providing sustainable clean-up efforts at water sheds, in bays and mangroves, and providing VI youth marine training with on-the-water apprenticeships and a marine trade school - My Brother's Marine Workshop.
