The Doddridge County Community Foundation (DCCF) is proud to introduce the new Doddridge County Hunger and Housing Justice Fund in Honor of Janice and Jim Dugan. This endowment fund will provide annual support to eligible organizations tackling hunger and housing challenges, aiming to enhance the quality of life for Doddridge County residents now and into the future.

This fund commemorates Janice and Jim Dugan’s legacy of love, faith, service, and compassion. The Dugans moved to the area in 1988 and actively supported the Catholic Church, constructed homes with Habitat for Humanity, partnered with Nazareth Farm, and contributed to local food pantries and other various community organizations.

Jim Dugan passed away on September 24, 2023. In celebration of what would have been Jim's 90th birthday on May 20, 2024, an anonymous donor is honoring Janice and Jim Dugan’s commitment to community service by offering a $1:$1 match for all new contributions to the Fund, up to a total of $5,000.

“The Fund will be held in perpetuity, ensuring that Jim and Janice's dedication to service and community will continue to benefit future generations,” stated the anonymous donor.

Founded in 2000 by a forward-thinking group of community leaders, the DCCF, a regional affiliate of the Parkersburg Area Community Foundation (PACF), assists individuals in making effective and meaningful donations to support their preferred causes and charities, enhancing the quality of life in Doddridge County.
