Grants to Rhode Island nonprofit organizations for programming promoting health and fitness for local residents in eligible locations, particularly children and youth. Funding is intended for programs prioritizing physical activity. Activities must be designed for school-age children and situated in Newport County.

Program Goals:

  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 lifestyle
    • 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. The priority of the Frederick Henry Prince Memorial Fund is to get kids physically active and off the couch. To be successful, applications must similarly prioritize physical activity above all other goals.

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 wide community response, participation, and acceptance
  • Demonstrate a measurable improvement in the behavior and health of the youth and families of Newport County
  • Develop life-long skills for maintaining healthy lifestyles
  • Are based in Newport County
