S. Doug Ritchie, founder of SDR Plastics, Inc. and Star Plastics, established the SDR Charitable Fund with the Parkersburg Area Community Foundation in 2006. This fund was later renamed to the SDR and Ritchie Family Charitable Fund to add the Ritchie family's name.

As a Donor Advised Fund with the Foundation, the Fund Advisors are offered the flexibility to recommend grants from the Fund to support a wide-variety of community programs, needs, and improvements. Since 2006, this Fund has touched the lives in the Mid-Ohio Valley region in a variety of lasting ways.
