Chad & Vanessa Cole, AP Co-Founders

Chad & Vanessa Cole co-founded the AddyPres Corporation, a 501(c)(3) Public Charity in 2014 with great passion to support public schools with resources, training & tools their experience told them were not in place. Our founders have grown a small, experienced team who invest their time connecting with leaders, organizations, educators and commerce to root causes, seek solutions and develop tools that answer an educational call to action. The AP Give Program and APYS College Mentor Program, were developed to activate sustainable solutions and provide continued educational opportunities for public schools.

Vanessa, is the president and driving force of our organization. Her passion & dedication to support families would inspire anyone!

As a fashion model, she had the opportunity to travel around the world, gaining a strong appreciation for culture and the arts. Vanessa graduated a Consumer Sciences Major with emphasis in Political Science at California State University, Northridge.

After graduating, she followed her love of the arts and took a position within a Los Angeles design firm. In her 5 year tenure, at this firm, Vanessa worked side by side with many diverse & talented individuals, gaining knowledge in architecture and design. Vanessa left her career to become a mother in 2007, and it was when her son entered kindergarten that her truest passion took root for what is now the mission of the  AddyPres Foundation. Vanessa is a lifelong learner herself and has participated in several courses & obtained Environmental, Social Governance & Corporate Social Responsibility certifications, she consults within the circular fashion industry & public administration.

Chad has had a successful career in high fashion and commercial acting for over 20 years, working with some of the largest brands & personalities in the world. His work has gained him knowledge in world cultures, marketing, photography, media & advertising with a birds eye view of the carbon impact this industry has had on the planet. Prior to this work, Chad was a college athlete and had the opportunity to work in hospitality management with the San Diego Chargers, volunteer with preschoolers through San Diego State University and studied criminal justice, gaining an interest in civil leadership. He is from California's central valley and has great interest in contributing to solutions rooted in agriculture that can drive a regenerative supply chain for the food and fiber industries.
