The PHCC Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that provides innovative educational programming to enhance the growth and success of the plumbing and HVACR industry workforce. In 2018, the foundation put donor contributions to work! It awarded 44 scholarships worth over $100,000 to apprentices and students pursuing industry related degrees, along with providing a variety of workforce development tools to contractor employers.
PHCC Foundation's online apprenticeship training program enrollments skyrocketed by over 500 percent in 2018 as it helped those employers get new apprentices trained and ready to work. It sponsored dozens of seminars and workshops across the country to help business owners and their employees learn how to keep up with the increasing demands of customers and technology. The foundation also had several other notable 2018 philanthropic efforts, including:
