Grants to Newport County, Rhode Island nonprofits for health and wellness programs for local residents, particularly children. Applicants requesting smaller grants must contact program staff prior to applying. Funding is intended for programs that focus on underserved, school-age children in Newport County and promote health and fitness through activity and participation. Two types of grants are available: Mini Grants and Direct Grants.

To accomplish the Frederick Henry Prince Memorial Fund's mission, the following goals have been established:

1. Improve the long-term health of Newport County youth and families by:

  • Increasing participation in healthy athletic activity
  • Improving fitness levels
  • Increasing self-discipline and motivation to maintain a healthy life-style
  • Increasing good health habits including diet, exercise, rest, hygiene and preventive medical care

2. Instill an aversion to the use of cigarettes, alcohol, and drugs

3. Build confidence and a sense of achievement

Goal #1 is the most important, and will be given priority. Projects addressing goals #2 and #3 will be considered if they clearly address goal #1. Educational goals are not part of the mission, unless they clearly address the participatory and fitness aspect of goal #1 above.

Projects that advance one or more of the following criteria may score higher in review:

  • Focus on children that have limited or no access to programming
  • Are innovative and/or are new initiatives
  • Show potential for a wide community response, participation, and acceptance
  • Demonstrate a measurable improvement in the behavior and heath of the youth and families of Newport County
  • Develop life-long skills for maintaining healthy life-styles
  • Are based in Newport County

Projects that are larger and request more investment will be expected to:

  • Show how the project will become self-sustaining and embedded in the community
  • Include matching funds from other sources
  • Have little or no overhead expenses, or which should be covered by matching funds.
