The C.N.O.T.E. Foundation
The C.N.O.T.E. Foundation was established in 2010. Seemingly, the foundation is an official 501(c)(3) non-profit organization per The United States of America Internal Revenue Service. The foundation was founded on three leadership principles: Character, Integrity and Confidence with specializations in Health, Education and Scholarship. The primary focus is to increase fundamental literacy skills in reading, writing and math in such a way which will stimulate personal growth. Style parallels our version of education and specific needs tailored to the African American community.
We believe there is a unique style to minority education and many factors to consider when developing minority leaders. In fact, our strategic comprehensive programming is aligned to promote growth and level the academic playing field with a certain sophistication. Regardless of where one’s literacy resides the goal is to improve literacy with no neglection or rejection by the general public or educational system. We believe in potential and we believe in every students ability to evolve. Our style is simple and our goal is to uniquely provide the tools and resources necessary for African American leadership and representation at various levels. As a bonus, our foundation forms solid relationships and creates endowment scholarships specifically for minorities at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU’s.) Eventually, we will pipeline specific high schools with opportunities at HBCU’s. Our vision is to inspire African American leaders in non traditional African American fields of study such as Engineering, Education, Medicine, Law and Performing Arts. Currently, we are partnering with public schools in Atlanta, GA, Columbus, OH and Durham, NC who traditionally have a strong African American representation in public schools. In the end, our focus is to close the achievement gap and produce the next generation of African American leaders CNOTE STYLE.
