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 public health and youth development organizations, Donna founded BLOOM365.
She has turned her personal lived experiences and two decades of self-guided research into a comprehensive and relevant “Are you blooming or wilting?” violence prevention and response strategy implemented in schools, community organizations and now military installations which spans across individual, relationship, community and societal levels. . In 2012, she won the Social Venture Partners Arizona Fast Pitch $100k competition to seed fund and test the efficacy of these innovations.
Additionally, Donna trains parents, caregivers, school personnel, military service members, youth service providers, school resource officers, and others 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. She is currently developing screening tools for school personnel and parents to use to identify risk factors and red flags among students at risk for causing harm to others.
Donna has been recognized locally and nationally for her work which turns theory and research into practice. 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 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 2023.
