Newport Hospital’s Frederick Henry Prince Memorial Fund has awarded a total of $121,100 to twenty local organizations. The “Powered by Prince” grants will help to enhance the lives of children and families throughout Newport County through programs that promote active, healthy lifestyles, education, and fun for youth.
“It is both an honor and a privilege for Newport Hospital to be the administrator of a fund that has such a far-reaching and positive impact on the children of our community,” said Crista F. Durand, president of Newport Hospital. “Together with the fund and its mission, we are committed to providing the youngest among us opportunities to develop and lead healthier lives. We’re really excited about the programs receiving funding.”
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. In partnership with Newport Hospital, the grant established the Frederick Henry Prince Memorial Fund. The fund provides support for programs that serve underserved, school-age children in Newport County and focus on promoting health and fitness through activity.
“Aquidneck Island is home to so many incredible programs dedicated to the wellbeing of our community’s youth,” said Guillaume de Ramel. “We are proud to support programs that truly make a difference in the lives of others, and to do so in partnership with Newport Hospital.”

Since the fund was established, more than $628,000 has been awarded to area programs.
