We know the importance of giving back

In loving memory of Pearl Kole, mother of Rob and Danny Kole, we created the Pearl Endowment with the American Cancer Society to raise money for breast cancer research. A percentage of all orders placed with Kole Imports directly support the Pearl Endowment for Cancer Research.

We fundamentally believe in helping people in need and have been supporting the Pearl Endowment and other wonderful charities in their mission. We encourage you to learn more about the charities we believe in:

  • A Community of Friends
  • L.A. Family Housing
  • P. S. I Love You
  • The Pearl Endowment
  • Tracy’s Kids
