As you may know, the Edward King House Senior Center provides an active and enriching environment in a warm, welcoming, attractive setting for Newport County residents. Programs offered include movement classes, health and wellness workshops, various educational programs, cultural programs, group trips and a variety of social events.   In addition, we offer performances, special events such as dinner and entertainment, garden parties, cookouts and many other opportunities to meet new friends, gather with old ones or volunteer to help out ‘around the house’.  The Center provides supportive services attuned to the diverse needs of today’s senior adult age 50 and older.

Often overlooked because of our grand setting, few people know we are an independent 501c3 non-profit corporation.  That means, every July 1st we need to raise the money to meet our expenses. We do this through a diverse funding stream of local and foundation grants, city trust, legislative grants, membership, class and activity fees in addition to regularly held fundraisers.

Typically there are over 30 programs offered weekly. If an activity doesn’t suit you, there is a lending library and sunny rooms to sit and enjoy some quiet time or just chat with friends.

Without the generous support of our community, donors, individual funders and you, we could not exist.

This coming year, our budget is just over $300,000, or approximately $1100 per day to operate.   With the current economy, cutbacks in city and state funding and a shrinking pool of grants, this task becomes more and more challenging each year.

We are asking you or your organization to support our efforts by contributing to our Annual Sponsorship Package.  Whatever contribution you can make will make a difference and is greatly appreciated.
