As you look around our website, you will begin to appreciate the unusually wide range of activities in which NRF is engaged. Many of our programs would never take place without the generous support of people like you.
Over the last couple of years, for example, we have been actively involved in efforts to alleviate the threat to historic properties posed by sea level rise. There is much more that we should do, and want to do, in this area, but we can only increase our efforts with additional funding.
If you appreciate the work that NRF has done in the past to preserve our history, please support our work in the future to protect our cultural heritage from sea level rise. Together, we can make a difference.
Every gift to the Newport Restoration Foundation is fully tax-deductible. We thank you for your generous support!
