Hebron Community Foundation

About the Hebron Community Foundation

The Hebron Community Foundation was established in 2012 with funds from the Ishmael & Rose Diede estate. Ishmael was a local community photographer in Mott for 38 years, serving Hettinger and Western Morton Counties.  He  wished for his estate to continue to benefit the communities that had supported him and Rose throughout their lives. Thanks to his generosity, the Hebron Community Foundation now has the opportunity to provide funding for community projects and scholarships to area students.

The Hebron Community Foundation is managed locally by a group of volunteers whose main activities are building the fund and recommending grants annually.

Ishmael & Rose Diede's legacy will live on in North Dakota through the four Community Endowment Funds and scholarships established by Ishmael's estate.
