BLOOM365 Founder

Chief Executive Officer

Donna Bartos, MPA (c)

The commitment to fight for a cause sometimes surfaces months, years or even decades after an adverse experience. Other times, it’s born in an instant to find a solution to a problem. In Donna Bartos’ case the path to dedicating her life’s work to preventing the root causes of interpersonal violence in a generation was a little bit of both. For over three decades, Donna tucked away the sexual assault, domestic violence and dating abuse she was exposed to and experienced as a child, teen and young adult. In 2006, after serving in executive, consulting, fundraising, marketing and training capacities for non-profit human service, healthcare, victim advocacy and higher education organizations, Donna founded BLOOM365: Bring Love On Others More, 365 Days A Year. 

 

In 2010, with the expertise of graphic designer Brian Richardson, she developed “Are you blooming or wilting?” a research-based education tool to help youth and adults recognize the red flags and root causes of interpersonal violence and identify the characteristics of healthy and safe relationships. In 2012, she won the Social Venture Partners Arizona Fast Pitch $100k competition to seed fund the development of promising-practice curricula and wrap around services for young people experiencing, witnessing or perpetrating victimization. To date, Donna has raised over $3.2M to test the efficacy of this innovation and to sustain and scale BLOOM365’s impact across Arizona and the U.S.

 

She currently serves on the board of the National Charity League Arrowhead Chapter and is the Outreach and Awareness Chair for the Arizona Governor’s Commission to Prevent Violence Against Women. Additionally, Donna trains parents, caregivers, school personnel, youth service providers, school resource officers, and other adults in the lives of youth on how to provide LEVEL advocacy, a concept she created in 2020 to increase the capacity and confidence of “natural helpers” to Listen, Empathize, Validate, Encourage and Link young people who have experienced, witnessed or perpetrated violence to help and support.

 

Donna has been recognized locally and nationally for her advocacy and activism work. She received the 2021 National Organization for Victim Assistance Edith Surgan Victim Activist Award, 2021 ATHEA Valley of the Sun “Acts Courageously” HAIL Award and 2010 Hon Kachina Award. She holds a BA in Communication from McDaniel College and is currently pursuing a Master’s in Public Administration from Grand Canyon University. Her memoir “From wilting to blooming” about growing up with domestic violence, surviving the trauma childhood sexual assault and thriving after teen dating violence will release in 2022.
