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.


"The Van Every Foundation is one of Charlotte's most important and generous community partners. Their loyal and steadfast support of The Mint Museum has enabled us to engage and inspire all members of our global community though meaningful educational programs especially designed to reach and transform underserved students in our city. We are so grateful for their civic leadership and philanthropic passion."
