Beth Dillinger Foundation
Every child is entitled to the hope of a better future.

about the foundation

The Beth Dillinger Foundation was created in 2007 by Bob and Kay Dillinger in memory of their beloved daughter, Beth. The Beth Dillinger Foundation (BDF) is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization that provides support and education to youth in need.

Four different means of support include:

The Beth Dillinger Scholarship Fund, a scholarship endowment available to boys and girls who wish to continue their education, but do not have the funds to achieve that goal
Beth's Closet at PACE Center for Girls in Pinellas County, Florida
The Hope Chest clothes closets located in the Public Defender's Office in Clearwater, New Port Richey, and
Dade City
Nourish to Flourish, a partnership with the 6th Circuit Public Defender's Office and the Beth Dillinger Foundation to feed chronically hungry children in our area.  There are over 7,000 chronically hungry children in Pinellas County alone.  A chronically hungry child is defined as a child who goes to bed hungry or who has insufficient food on the weekends.  Our goal is to feed these hungry children.

Remarkably, there are absolutely no administrative costs associated with the BDF. Its officers and directors are volunteers donating their time and effort to support the organization and the children they serve. All donations are earmarked and utilized specifically for the children. Fundraising events and administrative needs to promote the organization are provided by our generous sponsors.
