Our Story. The Future Communicators Foundation (FCF) was launched in 2022 by The PR Trust, a 501(c)(6) non-profit organization founded in 2014 by Allard W. van Veen to provide knowledge and networking opportunities, student scholarships and awards programs that elevate and empower aspiring professionals and young leaders in communications.

Our Founders. The PR Trust was established with endowment funds provided by Allard and Valerie van Veen for its outreach programs, scholarships, and operations. As a part of the PR Trust’s Mission, the FCF was launched with a US $100, 000 endowment from Allard and Valerie van Veen for scholarships and awards.
