Mill Reef Fund

General Welfare


The Mill Reef Fund’s quest to fulfill it’s mission statement—to improve the lives of the people of Antigua and Barbuda—leads our donors to many worthy organizations across the whole of this beautiful twin-island nation.

Our commitment includes assistance to the most vulnerable populations: the elderly, the severely handicapped, the homeless and victims of domestic abuse.

In addition, we fund after school programs and other training programs for the visually impaired of all ages, for teenage parents, for young people who aspire to work in the vibrant Caribbean yachting industry, for future agriculture entrepreneurs, for advocates of environmental awareness and even ceramicists and tennis lovers.

Important attention has also been directed to supporting preservation and restoration projects of Antiguaʼs historical sites.

And, finally, the Mill Reef Fund provides steady annual support to critical long-standing programs through the Red Cross and the Salvation Army.
