The Ovie Mughelli Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization looking to raise funds through our first ever crowdfunding campaign in partnership with Projects for Good. We hope to raise $10,000 in our first round, and ultimately aim to raise $250,000 to support our three goals (see more below about our goals below.)
We are dedicated to addressing the world’s sustainability crisis through STEM education and the latest technology, made available to everyone. By developing technology, programs, and curriculum for diverse groups we ensure that anyone can become a STEM professional. This innovative yet accessible approach is the key to inspiring generations of eco-conscious citizens. We uniquely harness the universal power of sport in comic book form as a way to unite an inclusive global community to take steps towards a sustainable future. By combining creativity and innovation we can meaningfully engage and motivate diverse, underserved communities to be the green leaders of today and tomorrow.
In 2018, OMF launched Gridiron Green, a STEM and sustainability comic book developed in partnership with UNICEF. The comic storyline was developed around the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals and focused on Sustainable Goal 15: Life on Land. It was distributed throughout the world, and has sports enthusiast, gamers, techies, educators, and workforce developers asking, “Is this the next big disruptive solution in STEM and sustainability education?”
