Welcome

The van Beuren Charitable Foundation is a family philanthropy dedicated to protecting and preserving the unique characteristics of Newport County and improving the quality of life for its residents. We are committed to furthering the good work of community-based nonprofit organizations that make a positive impact on the lives of our neighbors. To this end, we focus on enhancing the effectiveness of community partners working in three program areas: landscapes and the built environment, education and health. Since its founding in 1986, the van Beuren Charitable Foundation has invested in improving the lives of Newport County residents. We invite organizations that share this commitment to our local community to submit a grant proposal.
