About Our Fund
The Broken Halo Fund [501(c)(3) ]?? was formed by the Guffey Family in 2021 in honor of their beloved patriarch John W. Guffey, Jr.
Mr. Guffey was a renowned business leader who forged and guided several major U.S. corporations over an accomplished four-decade career. After conquering his own long-fought battle with alcohol addiction, Mr. Guffey sought to help others in recovery. He frequently gifted anonymously to individuals in need of support as they transitioned to a clean and sober life.
The Broken Halo Fund is a lasting legacy and tribute to Mr. Guffey’s generosity and fiery spirit.
“Angels come down from the heavens Just to help us on our way
Come to teach us, then they leave us
And they find some other soul to save”
– Chris Stapelton
