The Foundation, created in March 2001 is based in St. Croix (U.S. Virgin Islands).

It was during the vernissage of Haitian painter Burton Chenet's exhibition, in the Centre d'Art in Port-Au-Prince, that the Foundation was launched by: Gérald Alexis, Michèle Alfred, Louison A. Balthazar, Patrice Dilly and Gilbert Dumont.

• Creating a permanent space for cultural gatherings and exhibitions around Caribbean art and craft.

• Funding humanitarian projects in the Caribbean area.
