The van Beuren Charitable Foundation was established in 1986 by John A. “Archie” and Hope H. “Happy” van Beuren.
Early conversations around the family kitchen table formed the principles that continue to guide vBCF today: encouraging family involvement, developing firsthand knowledge of the community, and operating with integrity, intelligence, and imagination.
Having contributed over $76 million to the Newport region since its inception, the Foundation has emerged as a strategic partner to like-minded charitable organizations and remains committed to strengthening the community in its priority areas of interest.
