Arts, Culture, History
Arts, culture and history promote creativity, innovation, exploration and diversity while improving the quality of life for residents of our communities.
Dynamic performances and museums as well as other cultural and historic venues engage and inspire audiences, building bridges throughout our region.
Arts education plays a pivotal role in enriching the lives of children and provides them with a well-rounded education and the creativity they will need to lead in a global economy.
The Philip L. Van Every Foundation recognizes the important role that arts, cultural and historic organizations play in our communities and supports select organizations that provide quality experiences for residents of North and South Carolina.
The spirit of American philanthropy is beautifully expressed by foundations like the Philip L. Van Every Foundation, which each year supports cultural institutions like Opera Carolina.
Their contributions over the years has made a profound impact on Opera’s ability to serve this great region with excellent performances, education and community programs.
The Van Every Foundation sets an example of community investment by which other institutions are measured.
We are profoundly grateful for their devotion to quality cultural programming in Greater Charlotte.
