Mission Statement

The Philip L. Van Every Foundation provides thoughtful grant awards to support the programs and services of qualified nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations located in North and South Carolina which demonstrate dedicated service to their community and focus on the areas of healthcare/rehabilitation, education, human/community service and arts/culture/history.

Grants Overview

The Van Every Foundation supports the vision and legacy of Philip L. Van Every by making meaningful gifts to qualified 501(c)(3) organizations in the Carolinas which strengthen our communities, demonstrate fiscal responsibility, exhibit strength in leadership and have a proven track record of success. 

Education, Human/Community Service, Healthcare/Rehabilitation and Arts/Culture/History are our primary areas of focus and receive 95 percent of our funding. A very limited portion of our funding supports organizations that fall outside these perimeters.

Areas of Focus

North and South Carolina are the Foundation’s primary regions of interest. Education, Human/Community Service, Healthcare/Rehabilitation and Arts/Culture/History are our main areas of focus and receive more than 90 percent of our funding. A very limited portion of our funding supports organizations that fall outside these parameters. 


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 educational opportunities and scholarship assistance for students seeking undergraduate/graduate degrees or workforce training. We believe that education is critical to the future success of our children, families, communities, state and nation.


The Philip L. Van Every Foundation is committed to improving the health and quality of life for individuals residing in North and South Carolina.

We respond to our commitment by investing in programs and services that focus on medical innovation, research, education, rehabilitative care, prevention, wellness and substance abuse.

Human & Community Service

The Philip L. Van Every Foundation is committed to improving lives and strengthening communities in North and South Carolina.

We support organizations that address the underlying causes of a myriad of social issues, meet the critical needs of people in their service area and focus on creating financially stable and healthy families.

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 the arts play in our communities and supports select organizations that provide quality cultural experiences for residents of North and South Carolina.

Grant Amounts & Deadlines

The Van Every Foundation awards grants to select organizations annually. Typical grant awards range in size from $10,000 to $50,000. Less than 20 percent of our grant awards are in the form of multi-year pledges. The average duration of pledges is 3 years.  

Letters of inquiry are accepted throughout the year but are reviewed by the Board in March, June, September and December. Letters of inquiry and full grant proposals (if invited) must be received by the 10th of the month prior to the upcoming meeting month in order to be reviewed. Requests not received by that date will be considered at the next quarterly board meeting.
