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, is 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.
  • Beth's Corner is a room created at “Ready for Life,” an organization with a goal to assist youth aging out of the foster care system.
  • Through the Nourish to Flourish program, Beth Dillinger Foundation has provided over 375,000 meals to chronically hungry children in our area.
