About The Diller Community Foundation
The Diller Community Foundation focuses on improving the community area for the future of the Diller children. Funds from the Diller Community Foundation support local youth programs, like the youth recruitment to the community and helping kids purchase uniforms and school supplies. The foundation is currently working with the Center for Rural Entrepreneurship on a youth recruitment project. Most recently, a survey was completed by all students of Diller-Odell High School and will be used to determine the needs and desires of the youth in the community. Both adults and youth of the Diller Community will work together to gain further insight to job opportunities in the community and also to help youth develop entrepreneurship skills. The project aims to give youth a voice in the community plans and projects.
