As you look around our website, you will begin to appreciate the wide range of activities in which NRF is engaged. Many of the programs we bring to the public are possible due to generous financial support from our guests and members of our local community.

If you appreciate the work that NRF has done in the past to preserve our history, please support our work into the future so we can continue to preserve and protect our cultural heritage and develop more programs, exhibitions, and educational opportunities for the benefit of the community. Together, we can make a difference.

There are many ways to support the Newport Restoration Foundation, and in most cases, your donation is fully tax-deductible. We thank you for your generosity!

Giving to NRF

Matching Gifts

Want to make your contribution to NRF go further? If you or your spouse works for one of the many companies that offer matching gifts, your philanthropy can have greater impact. Simply contact your company’s HR department to request a matching gift form, fill it out, and send to NRF for processing. You will be recognized for the full amount of your gift, plus the matched amount made by your employer.

 

Tribute Gifts

Make a gift to NRF in honor of or in memory of a loved one. Along with your gift, please provide the contact name and address of the person you would like acknowledged, and we will send a card to notify the recipient. If making your gift online, please include contact name and address information in the Additional Comments section of the form. The amount of your gift will not be disclosed.

Gifts of Securities

Giving appreciated stocks, bonds, or mutual funds can allow for the avoidance of capital gains taxes and, in most instances, a charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the donation. For more information, please contact Alicia Cipriano at 401.849.7300 x117.
