The Gail and Walter Gunn Scholarship has now been endowed with The Community Foundation of the Dan River Region.
The Gail and Walter Gunn Scholarship was created to provide scholarships to local African American students with a preference for those studying business or with an entrepreneurial interest. Applications will be accepted in January and February 2016 at www.cfdrr.org for the 2016-17 school year. Donations can still be made to the Gail and Walter Gunn Scholarship to help the fund grow and support more students.
Other people who wish to support a new or one of the existing 43 Community Foundation scholarships can make donations to The Community Foundation, with the specific scholarship designated, 541 Loyal Street, Danville, VA 24541.
The Community Foundation of the Dan River Region is an independent, public charity established in September 1996 by a steering committee of local civic leaders to gather permanent funds to support our area. The Community Foundation of the Dan River Region is a public charity with total assets exceeding $25 million.
While the Foundation works with donors to establish funds to benefit any geographic area, our primary service area is Danville/Pittsylvania County, Virginia and Caswell County, North Carolina. Donations are also being sought to build up resources for South Boston/Halifax County, with consideration being given to other neighboring counties.
The Community Foundation is fully tax-exempt as an organization described in Sections 501(c)(3) and 170(b)(A)(vi) of the Internal Revenue Code.
