STATE is a partnership between husband and wife duo, Scot and Jacqueline Tatelman. Scot and Jacq 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 at-risk 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 trash bags, Scot and Jacq formed STATE – a company that promises to not only deliver much needed supplies, but to also provide them with the tools to reach their fullest potential and better their communities. And to always have their backs. STATE was created to address the immediate needs of American children living with challenging – and in some cases critical – circumstances. For every STATE bag purchased, STATE hand-delivers a backpack – packed with essential tools for success- to an American child in need; but our commitment goes beyond simply a material donation.
