The Hill School has been accepting applications from Pottstown-area nonprofit organizations for its Student Philanthropy Council (SPC) grant program since early December. Interested organizations may download and submit a Request for Proposal. View and print a PDF of the Request for Proposal here. Completed applications must be submitted by Thursday, January 10, 2013.
The Student Philanthropy Council, first launched in October 2008, was created by Charles A. Frank, III, Hill School Class of ’59 and former Chairman of the Board of Trustees, and his wife, Betty. The Franks donated $35,000 to The Hill School to establish this program which allows Hill students to learn about the value and processes of philanthropy. In addition, the program provides funding to Pottstown nonprofit organizations with strategic initiatives focused on enhancing the health and overall wellness of area families and communities. Each year, students will award approximately three to five grants that will total $10,000.
Last year, representatives of the SPC presented a total of $10,000, divided into four grants, to local organizations and projects working toward an education-related goal. The 2012 recipients were Developmental Enterprises Corporation: $2,500; Pottstown YMCA: $2,000; Pottstown Area Police Athletic League: $2,500; and KenCrest Center’s Seeds of Purpose Program: $3,000.
