La Farge Restoration Fund
The La Farge Restoration Fund at Newport Congregational Church (“the Fund”) is a 501c3 nonprofit charitable organization in Newport, Rhode Island. It was formed in 1995 under the name La Farge Heritage Foundation of Newport to support preservation of Newport Congregational Church (“NCC”) and its unique comprehensive interior artwork and opalescent glass windows by internationally renowned American artist John La Farge (1835-1910).
The Fund’s mission is to ensure that the church building is sound and that the interior, uniquely integrated and designed, is preserved and accessible to the public as a valued educational and arts resource and a treasured part of the rich historical and cultural patrimony of old town Newport.
