Mission Statement

The Dieterich Community Education Foundation is established to provide monies for tuition to graduating students from Dieterich High School to help the community prosper.

What is the Foundation?

The Dieterich Community Education Foundation in cooperation with the Southeastern Illinois Community Foundation may receive contributions which are 501(C)3 tax deductible. A volunteer Board of Directors made up of business, education, and community leaders governs the Foundation.

Distribution of Funds

The final decision related to the distribution shall be the responsibility of the Board of Directors consistent with the by- laws of the Foundation. The goal of the Foundation is to provide the maximum contribution to the students while trying to develop a self-funded endowment account.

Board of Directors

The Directors change from time to time but are a mixture of Community Leaders, Educators and Parents looking out for the well-being of our students and community.

Who decides how the funds will be spent?

All donations and the awarding of monies shall be regulated by the Board of Directors established by the Dieterich Community Education Foundation. The use of the funds must be consistent with the Foundation’s mission and goals as established by the bylaws of the Foundation.
