Newport News, Va.-based Ferguson has again contributed to the PHCC Educational Foundation’s “Invest in Your Future” annual giving campaign.

This is the seventh consecutive year that Ferguson has made a gift to the Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Contractors’ foundation.

“Seven years ago, we asked our major donors if they could help us reach our annual fundraising goal. Ferguson stepped forward, not only that year, but every year since in support of contractor education and scholarships,” said foundation Chairman Bill Jones. “That commitment to supporting the contractor really sets Ferguson apart.”

Ferguson has been a supporter of the PHCC Educational Foundation for over 20 years and is a corporate founder level donor to the foundation’s endowment fund. Combined past and present contributions from Ferguson now total more than $195,000 in support of industry education.

“We recognize that educated, professional contractors are our best customers and friends,” said Henry Wood, Ferguson’s residential business group director. “In addition to this support, we are working to identify more ways to we can work with PHCC on programs to benefit contractors in 2012.”
