NEWPORT PUBLIC EDUCATION FOUNDATION

Rating: 5 stars   3 reviews

Issues: Education

Location: PO Box 1237 Newport RI 02840-0998 USA

Mission: The Newport Public Education Foundation (NPEF), established in 1991, is an independent, non-profit 501(c)(3) whose mission is to improve the performance of Newport public school children by enhancing their educational opportunities and by building broad-based community support for quality public education.
Results: We have done this in the past by providing teachers with grants to enhance their classroom activities, assisting the Newport Public Schools in rallying volunteers to read in the classrooms under the BOLD (Books Open Life’s Doors) program, and leading the campaign to raise more than $1 million for furniture, equipment and technology to ensure overall program enhancements at Newport’s historically preserved and renovated Thompson Middle School. We plan to continue in this tradition and expand into programs that support our teachers, students and schools.
Direct beneficiaries per year: Public school teachers who are grant recipients.
Geographic areas served: Newport, Rhode Island

The NPEF supported a cross-curricular opportunity for my high school Biology students to explore the application of DNA technology through the Shoah Project and to travel to New York to visit the Jewish Heritage Museum. The NPEF is a tremendous advocate for our students through the grants awarded to teachers.
