The Jan Dils Foundation

Jan Dils, CEO, and Chuck Hughes, CFO, of Jan Dils, Attorneys at Law, have always had a desire to help fill the financial gap for those in need. From supporting events to raise money to provide mammograms for eligible local women to hosting the yearly Freedom Fun Run 5K to benefit several Veteran causes, their events and donations have helped many residents of the Mid-Ohio Valley and around the country.

Jan and Chuck established the Jan Dils Foundation in 2018 to ensure their many efforts to support the community continue for generations to come. The Foundation’s current focus is on helping Veteran organizations. Some of the current beneficiaries are Operation Transportation, We Have Your Six – Parkersburg Division, and the Jan Dils Foundation Scholarship for Veteran Recipients.

The Foundation is grateful to the many staff members at Jan Dils, Attorneys at Law, who volunteer their time and efforts to make sure the events run smoothly. Their work, plus generous donations from sponsors, continues to make an enormous impact on the Mid-Ohio Valley community.

Supporting Events


Freedom Fun Run 5K

The Jan Dils Foundation hosts the Freedom Fun Run 5K to raise money to support the brave men and women who have fought for our country. Held annually, the event has become a favorite in our community. Participants from around the country participate virtually, and many in the Mid-Ohio Valley gather in person for a morning of fitness and fun. One hundred percent of the proceeds from this event benefits Operation Transportation, We Have Your Six – Parkersburg Division, as well as WVU Parkersburg Scholarship for Veteran Recipients.

“We hear about the sacrifices Veterans have made and the sacrifices their families have had to
make, and we wanted to do something to honor them,” says Jan Dils.

Annual Veterans Appreciation Spaghetti Dinner

Held annually on the Thursday before Veterans Day, the Veterans Appreciation Spaghetti Dinner directly supports Veterans in the Mid-Ohio Valley. The dinner is free to all who served, and proceeds from the event go toward providing free bus passes to area Veterans.

Jan Dils commented, “We enjoy putting it on. This is something that we plan all year to give back to our Veteran community.”

Our Funds Support

Operation Transportation

For over five years, Operation Transportation has been providing Veterans with free bus passes through funding from the Jan Dils Foundation. This program exists as a partnership with local transit authorities dedicated to supporting Veterans. Right now, the program is available in Parkersburg, WV and Charleston, WV. We’ve seen firsthand the barriers our Veterans face, including lack of access to reliable transportation. Operation transportation is one small way we give back to the communities we serve.

We Have Your Six

We Have Your Six is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping Veterans who are experiencing hardship get the essentials they need. Jan Dils, Attorneys at Law, has a long partnership with the organization, and the Jan Dils Foundation makes an annual contribution. We are honored to be able to help those who have already sacrificed so much in service to our country.

Jan Dils Foundation Scholarship for Veteran Recipients

The Jan Dils Foundation funds scholarships for Veterans and family members of Veterans anywhere in the United States. The scholarship is administered through the Parkersburg Area Community Foundation’s online consolidated application process and will continue in perpetuity to support our Veterans and their families who choose to pursue education.
