Charlotte, NC, December 14, 2016– Cole Glasson Foundation hits a new milestone surpassing the $71,000 mark of donations to various charities across the United States. “The fund was founded in 2008 on the premise of instilling positive values in young racers while giving back to the communities in which we race” stated 16 year old Glasson. In late 2010, the fund rebranded itself under the direction of Cole Glasson Racing to broaden its reach for 2011 and beyond. With the renewed focus, the fund will be operating under the new mantra, “Impacting the future of the charities we touch”.
All funds flow through Austin Community Foundation where the grants are cut. This allows the charitable fund to keep overhead low while maintaining an experienced fund management staff and the ability to scale to a nationwide level.
The foundation is focused on finding charitable endeavors where Cole can impact the people he comes in contact with and to follow God’s path in making a positive impact. Cole feels he has been blessed to use his racing as his ministry to have positive long lasting relationships that begin on the track and impact people far away from the track.
