To passionately honor the proud Virgin Islands’ heritage, celebrate its unique culture, and empower future generations by providing educational and artistic tools, resources, collaborative support, and inspiration.
Fireburn Heritage, Inc, is an IRS approved 501(c)(3) whose mission is to help transform lives through partnerships and collaborations with other non-profits and like-minded individuals. We opened our doors in 2018 as Fireburn Foundation and changed our name to Fireburn Heritage, in order to more accurately reflect our mission. The organization helps create and distribute products that render quality education, as well as projects that result in financial donations and necessities for those in need. Although we have a strong emphasis on cultural preservation and the humanities, we also work closely with other organizations to contribute to gender equality, zero hunger, and safe environmental practices.
Through collaborative efforts, we have helped collect food for hurricane victims in the Bahamas, given away books and documentary DVDs for literacy campaigns, donated money to orphans and the elderly, fed and sheltered the homeless, and collected clothing and canned goods for people in need.
We were selected by the United Nations Association, Broward County Chapter, as one of the 2020 United Nations Day Honorees as an organization which has exhibited support for one or more of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). SDGs for which our work was recognized are: no poverty, zero hunger, quality education and gender equality.
