The Pott Foundation

The Pott Foundation was established in 1963 by Herman T. Pott.  The grant making process is overseen by an Advisory Committee made up of seven members.  This Committee, four of whom are descendants of Herman and Phenie Pott, determines how the funds will be distributed to accomplish the mission of the trust.


The Advisory Committee of the Pott Foundation honors the values that were important to Herman T. Pott and Phenie R. Pott; children, education and health and human services. Most of the grant recipients are located in Herman Pott's adopted city of St. Louis, Missouri. The Foundation distributes approximately $1.5 million annually to over 100 charities.
