Grant Description

Grants to Rhode Island nonprofit organizations for health and fitness programs in eligible locations. Programs must be appropriate for school-age children and youth. The purpose of funding is to increase opportunities for local children to engage in physical activity, build confidence, and instill an aversion to the use of cigarettes, alcohol, and drugs. Programs must take place within Newport County.

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. Additional requirements include that the programs be appropriate for and utilized by school-age children, and that the programs be situated within Newport County.

In addition to these requirements, 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

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.

In addition to these requirements, 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
