OUR Giving Priorities



Supporting educational initiatives at Newport Festivals Foundation does just that - gifts directly benefit all our educational programs – from after school programs, to instrument drives and to school assembly performances.  Gifts to our Educational Initiatives will also help to cover the costs of inviting student bands to perform at the Newport Folk and Jazz Festivals.


Gifts to the museum fund go directly to underwriting the Newport Festivals Museum located at Fort Adams State Park. From infrastructure improvements to hosting cultural exchange programs, local artists and up and coming musicians, your contribution will go directly to building a year round presence celebrating the history of both festivals and the Foundation’s efforts. 

3) FOundation Endowment 

Endowments are essential to all thriving non-profit institutions - they ensure stability and flexibility and guarantee a stable source of income in perpetuity.  All donations to the endowment help to fund the long term success of both festivals. The endowment also acts as a safety net to ensure that our mission continues for generations to come.
