Hill Philanthropy Grant Applications Due by Dec. 14

The Hill School's Student Philanthropy Council

Blogger's Note: The following was provided by The Hill School.

The Hill School now is accepting applications from Pottstown-area nonprofit organizations for its Student Philanthropy Council (SPC) grant program. 

Interested organizations may complete this online form and submit a Request for Proposal. ​View detailed instructions on how to apply and access the online application. 

Completed applications must be submitted by Monday, ​Dec. 14.

The SPC was established in 2009 through a gift to The Hill School courtesy of Charles A. Frank III, Hill ’59, and his wife, Betty. Hill student participants solicit and evaluate local nonprofit requests for funding, and then award a total of $10,000 in grants each year. 

Through the Franks' leadership and the generosity of several other donors, The Student Philanthropy Council became an endowed program at the School with the establishment of The Student Philanthropy Council Endowment in honor of Kay and David Dougherty in 2012. 

Thanks to additional funding, the School has been able to increase the amount for this year's grant total to $12,000. 

Last year's SPC awarded grants totaling more than $11,000 to six local nonprofit organizations to help fund those entities’ community programs for the 2014-15 school year. They include the Greater Pottstown Tennis and Learning: $3,000; Coventry Christian Schools – Project Purpose: $2,000; Growing Center: $1,862; Creative Health Services: $1,728; Girls On The Run: $2,000; and ARTFUSION 19464: $1,390.
