This is John and Tina Michaels, Daniel's Parents. We thank you for your contributions during this difficult time. Initially a classmate of Dan's set up the fund for our benefit. We reached out to SUNY Oneonta to see if we could donate the proceeds to the school to set up a fund in Dan's name to benefit others.
The funds received will be withdrawn by us to create a scholarship fund in Dan Michaels name. We will be working with SUNY Oneonta Scholarship Administration to award students in the years Daniel would have been attending college between 2017-2021.
We will be withdrawing the funds into a bank account where they will be allocated to the school. It is our hope that many students will be able to financially benefit due to your generosity.
