Action Plan

The Gary Mioli Fund

Hello Everyone, for those of you who might not know me my name is Haley Brucker and I am currently a senior at the University of Dayton!
This semester I am in a Sales and Fundraising class. As part of my class experience we have been asked to raise funds for one of our favorite charities at Dayton. I chose the Gary Mioli Fund. The Gary Mioli fund cherishes Gary’s leadership of coaching on and off the football field. With Gary suddenly passing away at the age of 57, his foundation was born. The Gary Mioli foundation has raised over $21,000 and donated to over 30 different organizations. I am now honored to say that one of my organizations is a part of this foundation! I had the opportunity to present my foundation Partners & Prevention to my class during a philanthropy tournament. Through hard work and sharing my story I placed third of 29 students, which ensured Partners & Prevention $1,050. In addition I set my personal goal at $1,550 and I have currently raised $655. People in the past have donated anywhere from $50-over $1,000. I would love you all to join in on my journey of donating to Gary Mioli to honor his legacy and spreading light on fentanyl awareness in remembrance of my brother Cameron.
