History of the Foundation
The PHCC Educational Foundation was established in December 1986 by PHCC members with the goal of helping their fellow contractors be more successful through education and professional training. These contractors believed and still believe that by helping their friends and their competitors, the whole profession benefits.
The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit and the majority of our funding can be traced back to over 70 contractors, manufacturers and industry partners who have made major gifts to establish the Foundation's Endowment Fund. This fund is permanently restricted, with investment earnings used to provide funding to develop and maintain Foundation programs. These major donors form the core membership of our committees and together serve as our Board of Governors.
