Our Story

The DME Foundation was created by brothers, Mike and Dan Panaggio in 2017. As individuals that were driven by education and athletics, they wanted to share their gifts and give back to the community. They took their vision and created a nonprofit that could provide financial assistance for students to explore their educational and athletic endeavors.
