Buxton charitable foundation accepting applications


BUXTON – The Narragansett Number One Foundation, a private charitable foundation located in Buxton, is accepting applications through April 1.

Organizations must be government entities, or quality as 501(c)(3) status not-for-profits groups under Internal Revenue Service rules.

The purpose of the foundation is to provide assistance to schools, fire departments, police departments, parks, recreational facilities, religious organizations, libraries, organizations supporting homeless and abused persons, food pantries, and shelters for animals.

It was established by Pat and Erwin Wales in September 2001 after they won the national Powerball lottery drawing.  The Wales family donated $5 million in creating the foundation, and invites other individuals, organizations or companies to donate to the charity.
