Project Story

The Ovie Mughelli Foundation

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.

 

About our project

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?” 

 

The first epic issue-get your copy today!

 

Achieving this first round of crowdfunding will produce a bold comic series and use VR innovation to engage users. As they move through curriculum standard teaching and training, they’ll be rewarded for learning STEM skills, stewardship, and practical lifestyle changes.

 

Help us develop this desperately needed comic, STEM curriculum, and teaching technology to give diverse communities competitive skills for opportunities in education, career, and innovation!

 

This first round of crowdfunding will go towards phase 1. Ultimately we have three phases to support our ultimate goal:

 

  1. Expand the comic series to cover all 17 of the UN’s sustainable development goals and include additional characters, and fully develop the storyline, with a focus on representing diversity. $100,000 will be used to be used to hire artists and story-writers.           
  2. Ensure that the comic book meets a standards-based curriculum so that it can be distributed in K-12 schools and adult learning environments as an educational tool throughout the United States. $50,000 will be used to hire professional curriculum designers and education consultants.
  3. Build out a companion virtual reality gaming module that marries the comic, curriculum and technology to create a first of its kind, 21st-century interactive learning tool. Check out the prototype! $100,000 will be used to develop, code, and publish the teaching and training virtual reality game.

 

Give today!  And while every dollar makes an impact, there are ways to help beyond donating. Tell your family and friends and share the project on social media to spread the word.
