The Hebron Community Foundation was first established 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.

FUNDING: Committee work is supported by the fund(s) listed to which donors can give and help us in our mission to serve the community. 

ENDOWMENT: Is the primary fund, and Qualifies for 40% ND Tax Credit. (click on link for requirements) Roughly 4% of funds are put to work in the community used annually as "grants". 

Non-Endowment – Endowment Fund: Allows for funding of local events from which net proceeds flow to endowment at year end. Qualifies for charitable gift as long as no benefit is given in return. Does not qualify for ND 40% income tax benefit.

NDCF is the support system for ACCF with over 40 years providing comprehensive charitable services to ND. This includes donor gift planning and bequest planning for individuals, company leaders, families, and non-profits, and fiduciary services such as accounting, audit and money management. This allows local volunteer committees to focus on telling their story of their foundation impact through marketing, granting, and growing the fund.
