To make it easier for you, all applications and reports are processed via online submission.

How to Apply

The first step to applying is ensuring that your organization is eligible and the program you are seeking to fund aligns with our results framework. The Foundation accepts applications under three support types: systems reform, capacity building, and direct service/programmatic. Reference the Results Framework Guide to identify the type of support that will best serve your organization’s needs. 

After identifying alignment with our framework, you'll be able to start the process of applying. Applications are accepted twice a year and critical dates can be found on our grantmaking cycles webpage. All applications are processed through our online grant management system.  

  • New users will be prompted to establish a username and password. Multiple individual user profiles may be associated with a single organization. 
  • Begin your application by selecting the Opportunities tab and choosing the option that is right for your organization. 

Before accessing the application, you will be asked to complete an eligibility quiz which will help ensure alignment with the Foundation's program areas. 

An abbreviated grant application is available for those requesting $10,000 or less. 

Once you’ve completed and submitted your application, a PDF copy of your application will be available for your records. Decision notices are sent approximately eight weeks after the application window closes.

Fall 2023 Grant Information Session

An optional information session, strongly recommended for first-time applicants and those new to using the Foundation’s grants management system, will be held in coordination with the beginning of each grant application window. The information session will cover our results framework and program areas, resources available to applicants, and how to navigate our grants management system.

The fall 2023 hybrid information session will be held at Montgomery County Community College's Pottstown Campus and on Zoom to discuss Pottstown Area Health & Wellness Foundation's simplified application process Sept. 7 from 10:30 to 11:45 a.m. Topics of discussion will include program areas, the Foundation's new grants management software, and resources available to grant applicants.  Please register here.
