Dillonslist is a wonderful organization in memory of a young man whose dream was to change the world one step at a time. Sadly he was taken too young but this organization was built to keep his dreams alive. His love of surfing and being in nature is why Dillonslist works with Surf Rider foundation to keep our beaches clean and the oceans healthy. He was also dedicated to volunteering with children and motivating them to be the best they can be, this is kept alive by events with CASA, Jewish World Watch and Palisades Charter High School. Donations have all gone to causes that are changing the world and making people live better lives.

I’ve been involved with this board for a number of years, and I’ve donated to its work. Year in and year out the DHF strives to make this world a more just place. It tirelesslyfocuses on helping young people receive an education, particularly young people from traditionally marginalized communities. I know that when I donate to DHF, those contributions go directly to the projects I intended. Thank you, DHF, for all that you do to level the playing field for those seeking an education!

As a Board Member of the Dillon Henry Foundation, I can say that every project that is done is impactful and serves the needs of many. WE have focused on several main areas and made a difference in the environment, in providing college bound students with scholarships, with foster youth in Los Angeles, and our reach even extends to serving victims of genocide in Africa. The heart of the organization comes from DIllon Henry, an amazing young man, whose life was cut tragically short. It is with his passions and spirit in mind that we spread his name and goodness to help others. We carry on his dream to make our world provide more opportunities to others so their lives will be improved and their futures brighter. We also will look at new ideas and consider funding proposals that are in keeping with our mission statement and goals.

They are truly amazing. They not only give you the opportunity to keep studying by offering you a scholarship but they also inform you about other opportunities out there such as volunteering, internships and other scholarships. They are easy to talk to and they are always available if you need anything.

The DHF provided me a scholarship that aided me in financing some of the costs associated with my first year at the University of California, Berkeley. They have been very active in the local community surrounding Palisades Charter High School and work towards promoting access to education, even on a global front.

I grew up in a non traditional family and my parents were separated. The foundation helped me to afford college and gave me the mentorship to pursue my goals. I lacked the self confidence to do well, nobody had ever gave me such support and my life became much better because of it.
