Recently, the hospital’s Frederick Henry Prince Memorial Fund awarded a total of $135,293 in grants to 25 Newport County organizations. The “Powered by Prince” grants will support programs that help area children lead healthier and more active lives, and get kids moving, with activity including biking, dance, squash, surfing, tennis, and sailing. Many of the programs were developed to encourage the participation of low income and underserved communities, and to encourage both boys and girls to develop a lifelong interest in staying active. Since its inception, the Frederick Henry Prince Memorial Fund at Newport Hospital has provided more than $893,000 in grants for programs in Newport County.

About the Frederick Henry Prince Memorial Fund
In 2010, a $3 million grant from the Frederick Henry Prince 1932 Trust was conferred to Newport Hospital by Elizabeth Prince of Newport and her children Guillaume de Ramel, Diana Oehrli, and Regis de Ramel. Established in partnership with Newport Hospital, the Frederick Henry Prince Memorial Fund was created with that donation. Funding is available for programs that focus on under-served, school-age children in Newport County and promotes health and fitness through activity and participation.
