Dax’s Dream Fund – 1077
Fund Type: Passthrough Scholarship Fund
Dax’s Dream Fund Mission: To cultivate big and small joys for young adults living with cancer
Purpose: This fund will provide a non-renewable, one-year scholarship for an undergraduate student in good academic standing who is between the ages of 18 and 35 and living with the challenges and uncertain futures associated with a serious cancer diagnosis.
History: This fund was created to honor the memory of Dax Brodhacker. Dax enjoyed great fun, fulfilling social interactions and acceptance, a strong sense of loyalty and the perseverance to achieve through his association with his fraternity brothers. Dax was inspired to complete all academic requirements for his baccalaureate degree with a major in Communications from the College of Arts and Sciences at Indiana University at Bloomington despite diagnosis of what proved all too soon to be a life-ending illness. Despite his illness, he gained strength from his undergraduate classmates and within his Delta Pi Chapter of the Phi Kappa Sigma fraternity at IU- Bloomington to pursue and achieve their educational goals with renewed commitment.
