Funds will be used to help build the Doddridge County Community Support Fund, providing an ongoing source of support for charitable needs in the county, and to make grants in fall 2016 in response to the current needs of Doddridge County and its residents.

“EQT plays an important role in developing the region’s abundant source of natural gas – and Doddridge County is an essential part of that,” said Linda Robertson, EQT Spokeswoman. “But for us, it’s not about ‘just doing business.’ Many of our employees live here or grew up here. And we all have great respect for our neighbors here. Supporting the Community Foundation is just one way we’re making a positive investment in the wellbeing of Doddridge County.”

“These funds will make a difference in Doddridge County both in the present, through grants made to support important projects that meet the immediate needs of residents, and in the future, by building a permanent fund that will perpetually support Doddridge County. We are grateful to EQT for this gift, which we know will make a difference here in our county,” said Tom Whaling, DCCF Advisory Board Chairman.

Organizations interested in applying for grant support through DCCF can complete the Foundation’s online Community Action Grants Program application, available beginning July 15 through PACF’s web site, www.pacfwv.com. The grant application deadline is September 15. For questions about grants, contact Marian Clowes at 304-428-4438 or marian.clowes@pacfwv.com
