Community Services Nonprofit

About Us

For more than 30 years, Newton Community Pride, a 501 (c) (3) non-profit, has supported and helped fund many arts, cultural and family events for the City of Newton. These events are funded primarily through sponsorships and donations. Events include the fall and spring fairs, NewtonSERVES, Spelling Bee, concerts on the Newton Center green, and July 4th fireworks.

Pride is a volunteer-based organization, which relies on hundreds of volunteers each year.
