As Americans, we find ourselves living in an increasingly competitive global economy.
Carolinians are entering or re-entering a job market via which the competition is fierce and industry is more competitive than ever before.
The Philip L. Van Every Foundation is addressing this issue by supporting colleges and universities that provide high quality affordable education and vocational opportunities to students 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.”
