Estimated Size of Grant:

Grants range from $1,000 to $10,000.

Term of Contract:

Grants are awarded annually, on a year-to-year basis. Successful projects may reapply for additional funding, but NCF does not make multi-year commitments.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Nonprofit, 501(c) organizations and municipal departments located and operating in Newport County are eligible to apply. Organizations that provide services or programs in Newport County also are eligible.

The Newport County Fund does not fund individuals or scholarships, capital or endowment efforts, medical research, debt reduction, fundraising events, or campaigns to elect candidates to public office. Grants may support faith-based organizations for secular programs or projects.

As a Foundation-established fund with geographic focus, the Newport County Fund awards grants that serve to supplement, not replace, the Foundation’s current statewide grantmaking programs. Grant support from NCF will not reduce eligibility to apply to The Rhode Island Foundation for other grant support.

Pre-Application Information:

Applications must be submitted by midnight (EST) on February 15, 2019. Please note that no assistance will be available after 5:00 PM (EST).

Applicants will be notified of the decision in mid to late May.
