Upper Merion Foundation
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.
All proceeds from merchandise sales go directly toward the Upper Merion Foundation’s work to support vulnerable UM residents with emergency needs.
Merchandise can be purchased through the Upper Merion Foundation’s PayPal, at the Upper Merion Township Building’s Cashier Window (on the Upper Level) and at the Upper Merion Foundation’s Table at township-wide and other select events. Cash, Check, Credit Cards accepted.
The Upper Merion Township Colonial Stoneware Stein
About the stein: this beautiful Colonial Stoneware stein is custom made for historic Upper Merion Township by Westerwald Pottery in Scenery Hill, PA. 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). Each stoneware piece passes through the hands of up to eight craftsmen. Because of this, no two pieces are alike.
Individual steins can be purchased for $35. Steins are in stock and arrangements for pickup from the Upper Merion Township Building can be made by contacting Gerri at firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 484-636-3899.
Attention Businesses: The Upper Merion Township Colonial Stoneware Stein would serve as a great business gift or promotion and can be ordered individually ($35 per stein).
Bulk Sales: Orders of 25+ can be ordered directly from the township ($24 per unit). Contact Gerri Vattimo at email@example.com or 484-636-3899. Please allow 8-10 weeks for delivery.
