Assistance for Newporters in Need

Created in 2003 from a bequest of the Margit Baum Estate, Newport RI, the Fund is specified for the assistance, care and relief of poor and needy persons who reside in the city of Newport. Organizations may apply for funds by completing a Margit Baum Fund Application which may be downloaded or completed from the Channing Church website (click adjacent image to download PDF). Or contact the Channing Church Office at Phone 401-846-0643.

The Margit Baum Fund Committee of Channing Memorial Church evaluates applications. Organizations with approved applications provide funds to support Newport residents in need of housing and/or home repairs, funds for food, clothing, educational programs and scholarships.
