As Americans, we find ourselves living in an increasingly competitive global economy.
Students are entering a highly competitive job market.
The unemployed and underemployed are seeking new career opportunities that require enhanced skills.
The Philip L. Van Every Foundation is addressing these issues by supporting colleges, universities and nonprofit organizations that provide quality affordable education and job re-training programs for individuals seeking degrees or certificates.
We believe that education is critical to the future success of our children, families, communities, state, and nation.
“Furman has been a life-changing experience.
As a student, I have had the most amazing opportunities.
I have traveled around the world, studied three different majors, and engaged in various extracurriculars including theater, music, athletics and service.
None of this would have been possible without Furman or your help.
Thank you for making it possible for me to attend the school of my dreams.”
