Your Community Foundation

The Pottstown Area’s Community Foundation

Pottstown Area Health & Wellness Foundation transitioned from a private foundation to a community foundation July 1, 2023. Like many community foundations, PAHWF takes a leadership role in the communities we serve, identifying emerging needs, collaborating across the community, and advocating for positive change.  

Community foundations rely on public support and focus on improving the quality of life within a specific geographic area. In our case, that means serving residents within a ten-mile radius of Pottstown, including communities like Birdsboro, Boyertown, Coventry, Gilbertsville, Limerick, Royersford, and many others.  

As a publicly supported charity, PAHWF is engaged in building permanent funds of all sizes and established by many separate donors who are interested in partnering with the Foundation to carry out their passions. While the core of the Foundation's portfolio, generated from the sale of Pottstown Memorial Medical Center in 2003, will always be dedicated to promoting health and wellness, new funds will allow us to expand our grantmaking to meet a wide spectrum of community needs now and well into the future.
