The Newfound Foundation is a registered charitable foundation established by the Newfound Riders and incorporated in 2006. The objective of the foundation is to assist children in need. In particular, there are many children who do not meet specific criteria for being assisted by charitable organizations and they end up falling through the cracks. The Newfound Foundation offers assistance to these children and their families through providing transportation or accommodation costs for out of province medical treatment, meal cards, or paying for medical devices and equipment.
Newfound Riders is the primary financial supporter of the Newfound Foundation. It sponsors an annual motorcycle draw, the proceeds from which are passed to the Newfound Foundation for dissemination to children and families.
