Wooldridge Scholarship Foundation Fund
Originally named in 1997 as the Salem Rotary Club Wooldridge Scholarship Foundation Fund, it started an endowment to provide two annual scholarships to the Division III colleges in honor of the male and female winners of the Jostens Trophy. These two scholarships were named in honor of Salem Rotarian Dan Wooldridge, a former Old Dominion Athletic Conference Commissioner. In 2004, the Foundation’s name was amended to the Salem Rotary Club Foundation, Inc. In early 2017, another amendment was made to reflect a broader principal purpose….. “to provide educational and scholarship assistance, humanitarian aid, and to engage in any lawful purpose or purposes permitted by the Virginia Non-Stock Corporation Act."
