Meet the Sponsor
HBHMI is sponsored by the Pottstown Area Health & Wellness Foundation. The Foundation is a community nonprofit organization whose mission is to enhance the health and wellness of area residents by providing education, funding and programs that motivate people to adopt healthy lifestyles.

The Foundation awards grants to area nonprofit organizations which use their resources and services to develop and enhance programs that support our purpose of promoting health and wellness. Grant awards are based on four key priority areas which include improvement in healthy behaviors through schools.

Since 2004, more than $9 million has been awarded to the public and private schools within the Foundation’s service area. In short, the Foundation’s role is to help area residents improve their health and well-being every day. By doing so, we are creating a more dynamic and more vibrant community in which to live now... and into the future.
