The Daniel Cardillo Charitable Fund was established in 1999 and has since awarded more than $150,000 in scholarships. DCCF seeks to inspire, support, and encourage promising and compassionate young people pursuing their artistic, athletic, or non-traditional academic goals, and -- most importantly -- their life's passion.
As a true Olympian of the mind, body, and spirit, Daniel assisted others in realizing their own strengths and made everything seem possible. Dan was a junior Olympic skier, an avid fisherman, a serious student, a gifted artist and an exceptionally kind human being. He lived life fully and attacked all of his challenges with a passion that has become legendary. He encouraged others to do their personal best and reach for their goals.
To preserve and perpetuate Daniel's memory, we will elevate and celebrate those who have the courage to reach for their dreams.
