    As the cost for post-secondary education continues to rise, the Doddridge County Community Foundation encourages individuals concerned about the academic future of our region’s young people to partner with the Foundation.  Individuals can volunteer on the Foundation’s Scholarship Fund Committee, donate to build a current scholarship fund, or create a new scholarship fund.  Together we can make a meaningful difference for our community’s next generation.  To learn more about the Foundation’s current scholarships or how to create your own scholarship, visit www.pacfwv.com/scholarships or call 304.428.4438.
