Annual Appeal

Each year, the Newport Public Education Foundation awards more than $20,000 in grants to classroom teachers and community partners to provide innovative educational experiences to the children of Newport.

We invite you to help us continue our mission. Give now.

In 2019, we funded enrichment grants at Pell Elementary School, Thompson Middle School and Rogers High School. We also supported community partnerships such as the Rough Point art education program, a longtime collaboration with the Newport Restoration Foundation in which students produce artwork to be displayed at Rough Point.

We were thrilled by the number of grant requests we received, however our budget did not allow us to fully fund all grants and the grants committee had to make some very difficult decisions.

With an excellent response to our annual appeal, we may be able to reconsider funding some of these very worthy projects. Give now.

Despite the strong leadership and teaching in our schools, Newport Public Schools continue to be challenged in many ways. Students and educators need our financial support to maintain a high standard of learning.

Many of these experiential programs that make our schools special are not funded in the regular school budget. Our mission is to bridge that gap by providing teachers with the funds they need to provide the best possible education to our students.

We support the children of Newport and look forward to having you join us in this effort. Give now.
