The Community Foundation of the Dan River Region is currently accepting applications for 36 different scholarships. Area students who are interested may apply online through the Foundation’s web site at www.cfdrr.org. The deadline for all applications is Wednesday, February 26, 2014.
Last year the Foundation awarded 77 scholarships totaling more than $149,000 to area students. These scholarships were awarded from 30 different scholarship funds within The Community Foundation.
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.
While the Foundation works with donors to establish funds and scholarships 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 a fully tax-exempt organization. Individuals, businesses or organizations may establish their own fund or may contribute any amount to existing funds. The Community Foundation may be contacted at 541 Loyal Street, VA 24541, (434) 793-0884 or www.cfdrr.org.
