Upper Merion Foundation
GIVE WHERE YOU LIVE.
The Upper Merion Foundation was created in 1999 and is a broad-based, qualified 501(c)(3) non-profit, community organization. Our exclusive purpose is to serve the needs of the Upper Merion community by raising funds and securing resources to support programs that improve the quality of life for all.
The Foundation’s specific focus areas for charitable fundraising and giving are vulnerable Upper Merion residents in need of acute assistance, specifically at-risk youth, persons with disabilities and/or chronic diseases including veterans and senior citizens.
Part of what makes Upper Merion a great place to call home is our commitment to each other. This is a place where people care. Where people want every neighborhood to prosper and for all to feel that they belong.

The Upper Merion Township Colonial Stoneware Stein
About the stein: this beautiful Colonial Stoneware stein is custom made for historic Upper Merion Township, established in 1713 and serves as a fundraiser for the Upper Merion Foundation. This unique item is produced by Westerwald Pottery in Scenery Hill, PA. Westerwald is the exclusive business that crafts the distinctive, iconic stoneware products and sells them worldwide. All Westerwald pottery is signed, dated and stamped with a potter’s mark. Each stoneware piece passes through the hands of up to eight craftsmen. Because of this, no two pieces are alike. The seven-inch stoneware vertical stein is a hand-stamped stoneware inscribed with Upper Merion Township, establishment date, and traditional colonial style decoration (leaf embellishment). To date, Westerwald has stamped more than 50,000 towns and cities onto its pottery.
Individual steins can be purchased for $35.
