What is described as "an announcement that is extremely important to the future of the Belpre area" is scheduled to be made Wednesday.
The announcement is coming from the Belpre Area Community Development Foundation's board of governors. It's similar to foundations in Parkersburg and Marietta because it issues grants for local non-profit groups and organizations.
The BACDF is a non-profit organization established in 1990. Its volunteer board of governors is responsible for distributing money based on the wishes of those who donate to the organization or based on the board's own criteria.
Donations can be made to the BACDF general fund or to a separate fund established to benefit a particular need or cause.
Wednesday's announcement is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. at the Belpre city council chambers.
