History: Pinky Cole, owner of metro Atlanta’s Slutty Vegan restaurants, established the Pinky Cole Foundation in 2019.

Did you know: The Pinky Cole Foundation gives to individuals, families and communities in need. The foundation has provided laptops, school supplies and coats to students. It has donated 100,000 pounds of fruit and vegetables and ignited conversations around voting and programs that support entrepreneurship. Through a partnership with The David & Derrick Hayes Foundation, Square 1: The Liife Experience is a program that aims to provide life insurance to 25,000 black men.

Motto: Their mission is to break the cycle of poverty through entrepreneurship, education, and empowerment.

How you can help: Making a financial donation to the Pinky Cole Foundation gives the organization the ability to reach more people in need. When you eat at the Slutty Vegan restaurant partial proceeds go directly to the foundation. Volunteers can sign up online to assist with the entrepreneurship program and at various events.
