The Timothy J. Mills’ Financial Aid Fund
The Timothy J. Mills’ Financial Aid Fund was established at Sail Newport in 2021 in memory of Newport’s former harbormaster, Tim Mills, who passed away in 2020. All dollars raised will be directed to the endowed fund which provides financial assistance to children in need seeking to participate in Sail Newport’s Summer Youth Sailing Program.
“Tim loved sailing in and around Narragansett Bay and loved encouraging new sailors, young and old. This Fund seems to be a perfect way to pay tribute to him in a way that he would have supported, sharing his love of the water and providing an opportunity for young sailors to experience sailing for the first time,” says Kathleen Dunn, Mills’ sister.
