Launched in 2004, Virgin Unite is the non-profit foundation of the Virgin Group and the Branson family, uniting people with entrepreneurial ideas to incubate new approaches to some of the world’s most challenging issues. Richard Branson and the Virgin Group cover the overheads so 100 percent of all donations go to initiatives that they create or support. Virgin Unite addresses a wide variety of social and environmental causes, from campaigning for greater ocean protection to advocating for drug policy reform. Working with some great partners, they have incubated several initiatives such as The Elders, The B Team, Ocean Unite, Carbon War Room, and The Branson Centre of Entrepreneurship to spur much needed change in the world.
The 2017 hurricanes have left unprecedented devastation across the Caribbean, it is a traumatic time for the British Virgin Islands and the whole surrounding area has been affected. Entire communities and towns have been decimated – and it’s likely it will be some years before the region is fully recovered. Funds raised at the Necker Cup 2017 for Virgin Unite are being used for their relief and recovery efforts in the BVI.
