About F&V Foundation
In 2022, F&V Companies, Inc. formed the F&V Foundation ("F&V Foundation"). The main goals of the foundation are to support local communities and education, especially in the technical fields.
“Since our inception, F&V has been committed to giving back to the communities where we work and live. It’s simply part of our core values,” said John DeVol, president of F&V and its parent company F&V Companies, Inc. “We also recognize the importance of helping people enter the workforce in technical fields. We are very focused on designing, building, operating, and maintaining infrastructure and caring for the environment, and recognize the need across the industry to attract more people into what can be a very gratifying career. Our staff is always eager to work with students offering real world experience to help them grow and have been able to help many students financially through scholarships and tuition reimbursement.”
The F&V Foundation seeks to promote education in fields related to science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM) along with vocational/construction trades. It will perform this function primarily by providing scholarships to students and grants to educational institutions under its scholarship and grant policies.
The F&V Foundation also seeks to benefit and support local communities through its grant program by distributing funds to qualified tax-exempt organizations in support of local community-building projects.
F&V plans to continue to grow the foundation’s endowment for philanthropic giving.
