The James H. Cole Legacy Foundation

About Our Foundation

The James H. Cole Legacy Foundation is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization that supports community-based groups that seek to encourage economic growth and prosperity among the citizens of Detroit through education, inspiration, and guidance. Our goal is to aid in the upward mobility of those individuals who strive to better themselves, their family, and their community by establishing guided interactions and nurturing relationships with positive leaders.

In order to fulfill our mission, the James H. Cole Legacy Foundation seeks to establish relationships with various non-profit organizations that focus on teaching financial literacy, economic empowerment, job procurement skills, and credit/debt management skills. Youth involvement and engagement is the primary focus of the foundation and of the organizations with which we partner.
