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 our cultural heritage and develop more programs, exhibitions, and educational opportunities that benefit the community. Thank you for helping to protect Newport’s historic properties for present and future generations to enjoy.


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. If mailing 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 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.

We invite you to join our monthly giving program – Restoration Partners. As a Restoration Partner, you are vital in providing NRF with ongoing and consistent support that will help us protect and preserve the historic and cultural heritage of Newport. Your automatic, monthly gift has immediate impact on NRF’s ongoing work in studying climate change resilience in Newport, developing new programs and unique events for the benefit of the community, preserving our museums and historic buildings, and assisting with any unanticipated needs that arise from stewarding centuries-old properties.
