Van of Urantia – A Lightworker Creating Higher Culture
Van of Urantia

Cultural Visionary

Organizations Co-Founded by Van of Urantia and Niánn Emerson Chase

For more than 30 years, Van and his spiritual and administrative complement, Niánn Emerson Chase, have founded a variety of nonprofit organizations, supporting organizations, program services, divisions, and cottage industries which—although very diverse in nature—carry the same underlying mission of creating a higher culture through social service, fostering the arts, and living in harmony with our Mother Earth. These spiritual educational organizations, service programs, and programs for the visual and performing arts have provided food, shelter, counsel, instruments, tools, training, encouragement, support, hope for the future, and so much more to countless individuals and families who have benefited from them. Individuals come from all over the world to learn many skills, both vocational and educational, and use these various services to better their lives.

We would appreciate your donations to help keep all these social service organizations going.
