THE STORY OF STATE: FASHION MEETS PHILANTHROPY
STATE began as a partnership between husband and wife team, Scot and Jacq Tatelman. They created STATE as a for-profit company with a nonprofit pedigree.
These Brooklyn-based social entrepreneurs have eyes trained for style but their hearts have always been with kids growing up in America's most underfunded neighborhoods.
In 2009, they founded Country Roads Foundation - a nonprofit organization that has served thousands of New York City kids.
After watching countless kids carrying their possessions in ripped trash bags, Scot and Jacq formed STATE - a company that promises to not only deliver much needed supplies, but to also provide youth with the tools to reach their fullest potential and better their communities. And to always have their backs.
Scot and Jacq live in Brooklyn with their two children, and their dog Pokey.
